In 2019, the RIVA Project further explored its international focus through lectures and workshops. Of particular importance was the lecture held at MAD by Michelangelo Pistoletto, in partnership with the Academy of Fine Arts of Florence, as well as the conferences curated by LWCircus, and the cycle of encounters curated by Prof. Antonio Capestro, with the collaboration of CISDU and the University of Florence. The constant maintenance of the Terzo Giardino fluvial park continued, likewise its guided visits organised by the Mus.e. Association. The partnership programme with Zhong Art International was intensified and two professors from the Academy of Fine Arts of Sichuan spent a period of residency at Murate Art District. These events strengthened the process to the final goal: a grand pluriannual exhibit initially scheduled for 2020 and then postponed to 2021 due to the restrictions imposed to contrast the Covid-19 pandemic.
