Promoter: Comune di Bologna
Coordinator: Incredibol
Cultural project: Orchestra Senzaspine, Arancine

In Bologna, the local market of San Donato is regenerated thanks to culture, creating a new urban center devoted to classical music and to young people. It will be the new home of the association Orchestra Senzaspine winning INCREDIBOL! 2014- creative innovation of Bologna. "A project - says Mayor Virginio Merola - who is also a gamble. One urban regeneration that is part of the strategy for the new city, witness of a plurality of lifestyles that respect the territory, looking at some time at the city centre and at the suburbs that become real atractive poles". Any unused space within the local market of Tartini Street will be entrusted to young musicians under 35 free of charge for four years (with the possibility of extension in the event of maintenance paid by the association) for the project "Mercato Sonato". The Mercato San Donato is a local market deeply rooted in the memory of Bologna for many years now in crisis, and devoid of activity. After numerous attempts to identify operators of a purely commercial nature, after a study carried out by the City Council in collaboration with the Study Center of Confcommercio and Confersecenti, it was decided to change radically the way. Within the program of regeneration and enhancement of the local Markets promoted by the city of Bologna, which has already given new life to Mercato di Mezzo and Mercato delle Erbe dedicated to food, the rethinking of Mercato San Donato aims to find a new vocation for space based on the culture. The intent is to resume a positive trend, which will produce in the future also a new commercial appeal, through a process of collaboration with the surrounding community and the creativity of which Bologna is nourished. The arts, especially classical music offered by motivated young and talented, can be cause for curiosity, discovery and sharing, all the ingredients necessary to create a new ferment in an abandoned place. We think of young people as an engine fueled by the enthusiasm of wanting to reinvent and rethink their city redeveloping and revitalizing neighborhoods, following an idea of collaboration and sharing of space with the most competent and qualified youth groups in the city. Market Sonato part by the motto "With culture we eat .. and we don't throw anything away" to emphasize that the project is fully sustainable through alternative forms such as recycling, barter and restoration. A multipurpose center and a meeting place, helpful to share the art in all its forms, from classical music to electronics, from poetry to contemporary theater, from illustration to video mapping, from crafts to sculpture. The project, in collaboration with the association Arancine, will be made visible through a live broadcast constant stream of activities that take place within the "construction site".
