“It was natural for me to create this artistic bridge between my students from Brera and the students of the Marist, a prestigious American company with which I have the pleasure of collaborating for years.I wish that the new generations would not experience this period as an arrest of possibility but as constructive of opportunity, both had to have stimuli to continue expressing their creativity during the lockdown and to remain connected with their dreams, carrying on their plans for the future. I am really proud to be part of this unique project in the world and I really hope that all of you, in Italy, in America, everywhere, can appreciate the talent and drive of these guys stronger than any lockdown. “
This international collaboration, first and for the moment unique, has allowed students far away by geographic area, different in their study path and physically separated, to remain creatively connected and create a single reality.
