Tutto doveva fare male se era divertente | workshop by Martina Sarritzu
September 11, 2021

On Sept. 11 from 4 to 6 pm, the workshop Tutto doveva fare male male se era divertente will be offered, in which the school and secret diaries will be protagonists. The workshop will be open to all and led by Martina Sarritzu.

There are two types of diaries in adolescence: the school diary and the secret diary. The middle school diary is a peculiar object: colorful, puffy and heavy, full of dedications, photographs, stickers and memories. The secret diary, usually sealed with a padlock, contains scabrous and embarrassing tales of our lives, which we would not want anyone to read, and which rereading after years amuses and baffles.

Martina Sarritzu’s diary is also a valuable tool for calling to mind details that harken back to her personal experiences, from which to draw to recreate a vivid image or feeling. During the workshop, the diaries of the artist and participants will be leafed through, with the aim of confronting the experiences and memories of adolescence. Among the pages of the diaries we will be able to discover funny and funny, but also veiledly tragic episodes that still play an important role in our lives.

During the workshop, an image extrapolated from our memories will be created through drawing. The workshop participants are asked to bring, if possible, their own school diaries or secret diaries.
