“The power to change the world lies in people’s hands. The hand stands for the energy to fight for a better world, to look for new ways to get to one’s goals. The hands holding one another symbolize that working harmonically together for a common goal can lead to better and unexpected results – a single branch can become a gorgeous tree. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know the person you are holding the hand with, what matters is the goal beyond. Diversities in language, religion or race are all flattened and people are united in the feelings and the aim for progress they all share” Gastón told us.
The Live Windows project is an initiative by Fabrica conceived to create a new language between people and retail space. Thanks to a co-operative network among major educational and cultural institutions, it promotes and encourages the exchange of ideas among young talented designers, whose works are published on the mediawalls of selected Benetton flagship stores all over the world. UNRIC has partnered with Fabrica to raise awareness on a number of International Observances, reviewing and endorsing selected video projects submitted by schools around Europe.
