" Connected in our vision and our work ethics,
we are able to bring people together,
to share knowledge and science. We are
an example of being independent together. "
The “Project Kimera” is a collaboration of international artists.
What binds us is a common vision: nothing is more valuable than the cooperation and exchange between different cultures. We believe that the results and experiences of intercultural exchanges and cooperations, are essential for the development and sustainability of the people and the enrichment of the environment.
Project Kimera is a fundamental member of the association Settevoci. Through them they share a connection to the historical country house Settevoci and it’s land near the Etna on Sicily.
Our goal is to facilitate meetings between disciplines, and propose an exchange with the local culture by offering core courses, shows and conferences to the local population.
We hope to bring a breath of fresh air in Sicily in terms of new artistic trends, researches and studies from every corner of the world. Is our intention to create a space where artists and experts can work on research and personal creations.
The name Kimera itself is a reference to the greek mythologists figure “Chimera”, a creature which has features of multiple animals.
" Bridge between the civilizations of the Mediterranean. The cradle of civilization in the West and the center of trade and communication with the East. The accessibility of the location is accurate and the area itself is unspoiled. The apparent seclusion of the island, affects the concentration and ability of oneself in a positive and progressive way. For this is the maintenance of being a bridge and a cradle for intercultural passages in Sicily a special value."
The inspiration that Sicily provides artists, researchers and pioneers to perform, is what we inspire the people of Sicily with.
In this a mutual exchange is arising between the Sicilian population and an international mix of people and organisations.
The Sette Voci itself is a Villa, situated in the area of Toarmina.
The surrounding is appropriate for setting up and practising in sustainable gardening and land use. At the slope of the volcano Etna; a center, with indoor spaces suitable for meetings, studies, researches and physical trainings.
