~ G.G.A. Minisini Residency

Since 2015, Giorgia Minisini has invited friends and colleagues to join her in Cividale del Friuli. These visits took the form of residencies. Some residencies were directed towards specific practices like qi gong, shiatsu, Feldenkrais, dance. Some were for writing and exploring in the vicinity of other thinking bodies. Some were for resting.

During some residencies a book came about:

1. Residency, July 2021

“Una vita in vacanza” (a dream by Rob in I cassetti)

It is always nice to have a container for thoughts and ideas and dreams. This container can be a notebook, but it can also be a box. For example, the time capsules of Andy Warhol. In the archive of the Minisini Pharmacy we found some old drawers that date back to the 1930s: i cassetti. We cleaned and restored them, decorating their interior with some laminated colours. We then took photos of each box and created the booklets in July 2021. The friendship books are given to guests who are invited to fill a box with a dream.

2. Residency, September 2020

“The apartment was like a dress. It was part of her character.” 

A visual story on Iole Gobitti Minisini (1917 - 2013) and her apartment came about in September 2020. It was written by her granddaughter Giorgia Minisini and visiting resident An Paenhuysen to commemorate Iole and celebrate the location of G.G.A. Minisini Residency in Iole's Apt #1, Largo Boiani 15, 33043 Cividale del Friuli. The stories are based on interviews conducted by Giorgia and An with family members, staff and friends of Iole. The book is printed in a limited edition of 30 copies.

3. Residency, September 2019

“Make a poem in the landscape by the use of your body.”

During the residency at the G.G.A. Minisini Residency in Cividale del Friuli in September 2019 two dancers, Eve Ganneau and Giorgia Minisini, and a writer, An Paenhuysen, met. They conceptualised exercises in which writing and dancing meet. These are documented in a publication Residency with a Schedule. A Creative Holiday for Dancers and Writers.

The schedule has 4 elements:
1. Studio time
2. Excursions
3. Table conversations
4. Reflection time

If you are going on a residency and you need a schedule, this is the perfect book. But even in the everyday, these are exercises for everyone who is interested in embodied writing, expanding writing, using the body, etc...  Each publication is unique, colored-in and stamped. The photos were developed by Foto Color Marcuzzi and the original Fabriano paper was purchased in the Libreria Muner, Cividale del Friuli.
