C3 | spazio creativo is activated to offer the territory a different alternative. This space was inaugurated in may 2018 and has not struggled to develop and grow thanks to the immediate presence of people who have found in this place answers to personal needs or desires. Immediately, C3 began to collaborate with numerous companies from the neighboring territory of Verona to the European one, often very different from each other, which contributed to characterizing the versatility of this space which is still versatile and able to adapt to the requests it receives. The space is organized in an open space with different spaces created.
The versatility shown by the space was seconded because it seemed to be the strongest response that the territory was giving.
Until now the space has hosted artistic residences, movement laboratories and applied arts and events that aimed to promote an alternative sociality, but also shows from the contemporary circus to dance.
Mostly circus in its declinations of contemporary and educational art is the pivot around which the project develops.
Circus as a contemporary art is a form of expression that uses a universal language capable of overcoming linguistic and cultural barriers, developing over the years through the continuous experimentation that nourishes it.
The circus as an educational approach is a method that proposes the practice of circus arts in a playful way in order to develop the potentials, skills and sociability of the groups and of the individual within them, without judgment or competition, but with creativity and sharing.
C3 | spazio creativo is a project conceived, created and managed by Giorgia Bolognesi and Rosa Mantovani, following the experience of Ludica Circo organization.
Place of networking and creation, C3 | spazio creativo is active for artistic, social, residential and multidisciplinary projects.

The Instituto Artene is linked to the exceptional international career of the composer César Tort (1928-2015), a great teacher and specialist in the development of music for children and young adults. He has worked for the Mexican State for many years and in 1975 he took over the direction of Popular Cultures and experimented with a new public and playful musical method that would be developed in 16 states to train 120 teachers and 200,000 young people.His method considers music to be an essential dimension of youth development and includes all the resources of juvenile cultures and national folklore. In 1976, on this basis, he created the Instituto Artene (Pedagogical Centre for Juvenile Music) where he taught himself for 35 years in parallel with his career as a composer. In 1988, he was Director for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean of the International Society for Music Education (ISME), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.The method developed is divided into several specific musical programmes for: young children for early learning, using percussion and many instruments; for adolescents and young adults from disadvantaged backgrounds and, finally, for young people with disabilities for tailor-made access to musical practices as a tool for personal development and social inclusion. The Instituto Artene’s methods are multiple and flexible to adapt to the very general public and make music a facilitator of young people’s sensory and intellectual development and by building bridges betwenn non-formal methods and formal educational sector. These methods are internationally recognized (Latin, Central and North America, Australia and New Zealand) but few in Europe, with the exception of a few experiments in England and Serbia.
