The project's aim is to reveal and promote alternative practices of transformation and re-circulation of materials through workshops, events and dialogues.
Taking inspiration from cooperation practices present in the wine and oil sectors, Frantoio Sociale aims to make demolition an activity accessible to all, transforming it into a social practice open to participation and sharing. Unlike the mass production model that often characterizes demolition operations, Frantoio Sociale is based on the idea of participatory and collaborative planning, in which the contribution of each individual counts and is valued.
This approach to demolition not only helps reduce the environmental impact of extracting new raw materials, but also offers a unique opportunity for building stronger social and community bonds. Oil mills and agricultural cooperatives are open and welcoming spaces, where people gather to work together, share ideas and experiences and support each other.
Frantoio Sociale aims to transform the demolition site into a place of exchange and collaboration, where the different actors involved - from architecture and engineering professionals to local communities - can contribute their unique skills and perspectives. In this way, demolition is no longer seen as simple destruction, but becomes an opportunity to build new connections, collective growth and valorise existing resources.
