Housatonic pop-up, Angela’s project
1 December 2020
In recent months, more precisely from March to September, we hosted Angela Nicente in our studio for her university internship. To tell the truth, the studio has almost always been a virtual place, given that her first day of internship coincided with the first day of lockdown, but the pandemic has not affected her creativity and desire to do, quite the contrary! The final result was this beautiful pop up book, which tells in an original way all the activities and services of Housatonic.
Thanks again Angela, for your invaluable work!
#SonoMoltoaltro on MS International Federation (MSIF)
19 November 2020
At the beginning of the year we had created together with AISM Onlus a mini series of video animations to tell the life, dreams and desires of young people with multiple sclerosis: this is how #SonoMoltoaltro was born, an animated story full of courage, irony and delicacy, with a soul colorful and very pop.
From today the project also finds space on the site of the MS International Federation (MSIF), the International Multiple Sclerosis Federation, and we can only be very proud of it!

Cartoonathon: talking about climate change effectively
21 October 2020
We participated in the “Cartoonathons” of ClimateKIC, ICRC and CBA14, a series of workshops that involved people from different NGOs, to discuss issues relating to climate change and the role of local communities.
Starting from listening to the conversations, we made cartoons on the themes that emerged and these were then collected in a virtual gallery, which participants were invited to comment by expressing their opinions.
The goal of this formula was to address and investigate complex and thorny issues through irony and sense of humor, to highlight critical issues, encourage discussion and set up possible solutions.

S.C.AT.T.I. is a national project to fight educational poverty, funded by the social enterprise Con i Bambini and which involves 27 partners including local authorities, schools and third sector organizations. The project focuses on the integration of children and its name is the acronym born from the words School, Community, Activation, Territories and Innovation, cornerstones of the initiative.
