Have you ever seen a “STAMPAtella”? Can you imagine what that could be?
It is a noodle with a message printed on it! Working as pasta makers and typesetters at the same time, children will make their own, unique and original pasta. Noodles are a typical Italian food: easy to make at home, with an infinite range of options in terms of taste and….messages! In this workshop, children create real pasta noodles on which – thanks to special typefaces – they will play writing “edible” messages: a multiple-level concept of food to be tasted with eyes, mind and taste buds.

The Faculty of Design and Art – Libera Università di Bolzano has a project-based didactic approach, which applies in a multi-disciplinary way by linking product design to visual communication. Mariagiovanna Di Iorio and Kuno Prey will present a project that is the result of their partnership: Mariagiovanna is a designer and researcher with relevant experience in the design and development of books, objects, object-books and visual identities; Kuno is a product designer and a teacher, one of the founders of the Fakultät für Gestaltung/Bauhaus-Universität in Weimar and of the Faculty of Design and Art in Bolzano, of which he has been director for many years. His work as a designer is marked by an innate curiosity and research of new materials and technologies as well as by a strong relationship with the handicraft world.
