e.mò.ti.con/ illustrate emotion 2018 is a project to explore childhood emotions in which theater, visual art and enhancement of emerging creativity converge.
In collaboration with Associazione Illustri, which sets up in Vicenza one of the major Italian illustration showcases, La Piccionaia launched an international open call for illustrators under 35 about childhood emotions. More than 90 illustrators answered, coming from Italy, France, United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Canada, Russia, Israel, Iran and South Korea. Among the illustrations received, 21 were selected by an expert panel to compose this exhibition, a traveling project that has in Vicenza, in the historic De Bernardini toy.
Among the authors of the shown illustrations, 4 have been awarded – Flaminia Della Vecchia, Scarabisso, Alberta Torres, Weronika Wolska – whose works will be pr tagonists of the communication campaigns of 2018/2019 theater projects for children and families by La Piccionaia.
In addiction, the exhibition includes some works realized by the children taking part in La Piccionaia summer camp as part of an artistic and expressive workshop focused on emotions
in 2018 After the launch of the public call, two different and unexpected entities chose to get involved by working on the theme and presenting a series of out of competition illustrations: the II BLA class of “Boscardin” Art School in Vicenza – with the guidan- ce of the teachers Antonella Zerbinati and Giuseppe Vigolo and the University of Fine Arts of Verona student Camilla Riolfi – and the young asylumseekers taking part in the Refugee Integration Project by Cooperativa Edeco / La Casa del Fanciullo in Padua – with the guidance of Luider Vasquez and Adelina Roci. From these experiences, two parallel exhibitions were born, and set up in Astra Theater and Unicomondo / Altromercato Shop by the scenography students at “Boscardin” Art School under the guidance of the teacher Camilla Sala. Two projects that explore the world of emotions from two different points of view, full of additional meanings, linked to the specific contexts in which they were developed.
In addiction, the exhibition includes some works realized by children themselves as part of an arti- stic and expressive summer project by Ketti Grunchi – La Piccionaia, in which emotions were pro- tagonists of workshops and activities, in constant regard to children’s expressive and imaginative needs.

La Piccionaia Centro di Produzione Teatrale is a theatre company based in Vicenza that has always been committed to the promotion of young generations through theater and performative languages. We strongly believe in contamination between different forms of art and we think that, just like theater, art of illustration can be a way to better understand the emotional substance that emerges when a child discovers something new, something that amazes and surprises him, or scares him or makes him angry. What are emotions made of? What shape do they have? What color are they? How are they expressed? What are they for?
And it is exactly with art of illustration that La Piccionaia has chosen to put in dialogue his theatre project for childhood, starting a reflection about the meaning of images, especially referred to young generations. This is how /e.mò.ti.con/ illustrate emotion was born: a project to explore childhood emotions in which theater, visual art and enhancement of emerging talents converge.
In collaboration with Associazione Illustri, which sets up in Vicenza one of the major Italian illustration showcases, we launched an open call for illustrators under 35 about childhood emotionsfanzia.
