Presentation of the project 'Constellation, the Sky in a Room' with the participation of the Matera-Basilicata 2019 Foundation and the Brera-Milan Academy of Fine Arts.

'Constellation' is a public and permanent work of art, born from EXPO 2015, and explores, therefore, the suggestion of the celestial vault, of the stars, of water as primitive elements from which everything originates, and together with the journey as a discovery, even of the unknown. The work of art is articulated and diffused in various real places and in the virtual realm of the Internet; it is created by the citizens of the world and remains forever a tangible, original and unrepeatable sign. After Milan with the construction of Piazza Costellare in Rho, 'Constellation', arrives in Matera for the year of European Capital of Culture 2019 and in 2020 will be in Dubai.

In Matera 'Constellation' is 'The sky in a room'. To symbolically and visually bind Constellation to Matera2019 a mosaic sky will be created, on the ground, with the Ursa Minor and the Polar Star, with reference to the colours of Europe that have always been distinctive of 'Constellation'.
Permanent and temporary citizens and school students will participate in dedicated workshops in which a mosaic of signed cards will be created that will make up the sky of Matera 2019, each card will be a symbol and emblem of dreams, memories, hopes and emotions of those who participated.

Once the starry sky with the Ursa Minor and the Polar Star is completed with all the cards signed, the signing of the cards can still continue, so that every visitor can take a part home to Italy, Europe and the world, of the work, a part of 'Constellation'. A part of the Matera2019 sky!
