AtWork
 AtWork is a project which starts from a collection of ‘artist notebooks’, unique pieces of work created by different artists on Moleskine notebooks and donated to lettera27 to help support its activities. The collection reflects the variety, wealth and complexity of contemporary art and, starting from an online exhibition, it transforms into a working tool. 

Using its collection of notebooks, AtWork allows the artworks to circulate with a new free and shared user licence (CC BY-SA), while experimenting with new touring exhibition formats, promoting critical debate in various art contexts and organising workshops with local communities.

Luoghi Comuni
Luoghi Comuni'Luoghi Comuni – little migrating stories' is a project that intends to conceive and narrate a new collective story in a world which is becoming increasingly nomadic and mixed.
Through the words of Italians and migrants, children and adults, the project documents the production of sense and culture which stems from the coexistence of different models, knowledge and lifestyles. It does this by experimenting with places and languages which are able to draw a wide audience and create a sense of involvement and empathy: with posters on public transport, videos shot in schools and video interviews with directors during festivals dedicated to African and world cinema.
