October 2022 – “Per un’arte responsabile”  is the title of the Round Table scheduled for Friday 21 October, from 5.30 p.m., at the Teatro Piccolo of the Venice Arsenal, to present the case history “Diplomazija astuta”, the first Carbon Neutral art installation on show at the 59. International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.

Diplomazija astuta, by Arcangelo Sassolino, is “one of the very first cases in the world of carbon neutral certification, according to the international standard ISO 14067:2018 for a work of art, through which the CO2 equivalent emissions produced during its construction and installation were certified and then compensated for through a project that involves and supports local communities in the protection of forest reserves in Tanzania.”

The initiative aims to create ‘a new approach for art. that rethinks its role: to reduce environmental impact and CO2 emissions, to respond to the current environmental and climate crisis’.

We are very proud to have contributed to this important and ambitious milestone of achieving carbon neutrality for the first time for a work of art.
