During the lockdown of 2020, in a Psychiatric Residential Facility of the Maffi Foundation in Fivizzano, in the heart of Lunigiana, a project of photographic reinterpretation of famous works of art was born. Twelve photographs and twelve podcasts tell the personal stories of the interpreters, in a dialogue with art and the universal themes connected to it.
From 30 September 2022 to 9 October 2022 it will be possible to visit the photographic exhibition "CAPOLAVORI, RE-INTERPRETATI E RACCONTATI" in the exhibition hall of Palazzo Blu (ground floor). Free entrance from Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Casa Cardinale Maffi Onlus Foundation, an expression of the Pisan Catholic Church, has been committed to caring for fragile people for 75 years, and in doing so, with the utmost professionalism possible, it also wants to make civil society aware of what we can learn from our relationship with them. Working with quality, sensitivity and passion means first and foremost giving centrality to the person, the quality of services and the most advanced management tools. The Foundation provides health and social services in residential, semi-residential and outpatient settings for the elderly, Alzheimer's patients or those in a vegetative state, young people and adults with physical or mental disabilities. It also offers orthopaedic and neurological rehabilitation services in its own modern rehabilitation centre, equipped with therapeutic pools, in Collesalvetti. The Foundation's eight operating units, located mainly in Tuscany (in the provinces of Pisa, Livorno, Massa-Carrara) and Liguria (La Spezia), with a total of around 500 beds and 20,000 rehabilitation operations per year, take care of their 'guests', here called Precious Sisters and Brothers, every day.
