Vessel is now focusing on the relationship between art, territory and pedagogy.

Terra Piatta explores the relationship between art, rural territories and pedagogy through public programmes and participatory collective research. TP aims to define possible strategies of cooperative cultural action that build on the social, political and economic dimension of  Capitanata  – also known as Tavoliere delle Puglie (Flat Land of Puglie, given the flat morphology of the area. Far from representing the rural identity of this territory through a nostalgic approach and through the myth of an exotic slow life, TP enhances the complexity of this territory and of its histories – from the impact of the fascist territorial plans that have deeply modified the configuration of the area to the new migrant communities that are currently inhabiting it – by activating a dialogue between a multiplicity of viewpoints.
