Urban Fields


After many non coherent experiments, we’ve finally succeded to file our strategies of urban appropriation into a conceptually stronger container we’ve called URBAN FIELDS: it’s conceived as a common ground shared with our network of friends (including also students) coming from different creative disciplines. The principal mission is to explore the physical and social controversial condition of the contemporary metropolitan realm through spontaneous, instant and temporary appropriations of neglected public space. Urban Installations, performances, workshops, various experiments of communication and relational design (known also as “tactic urbanism”) will be documented at http://urbanfields.wordpress.com

In basic design we trust | in disobedience we teach | in solidarity we live


UNPACKED is an agile and fresh Office supporting a wide range of creative activities. Mainly is a common ground for speculations over cross-fertilizing projects involving diverse disciplines including art, architecture, urban planning, photography, design, business innovation, teaching, communication and more.

UNPACKED unveils the opportunities hidden into the folds of obvious and banal, through architectures, installations, exhibitions, performances, workshops, various experiments of communication and relational design, instant and spontaneous playgrounds, experments inbetween digital and analog.

The office based in Rome started in January 2005 thanks to the Young Entrepreneurs European funds “Sviluppo Italia” and is currently driven by Daniele Mancini and Irene Rinaldi, both architects and educators
