A whole day of practices and theories, shared with those artists and communities who collaborate with Lavanderia a Vapore; a moment of reflection – together again, albeit spaced apart – starting from the bodies, actual archives often misunderstood, to affirm the importance of finding and listening the emotional concretion deposited into them.
During the day, it will be screened 1 minuto sospeso, meetings with those authors who had taken part in Coorpi’s project La danza in 1 minuto, a videodance contest aimed at dancers, videomakers, directors, writers, musicians, sound designers and enthusiasts who, during the suspension imposed by the lockdown, had accepted the challenge of creating innovative and courageous videodance works with a strong cinematic impact. A touching self-exposure to understand what dance can mean in today’s reality.

TANZ TANZ A game and dance proposal aimed at children, teenagers and their families For this season, Associazione Didee together with Lavanderia a Vapore, is going to offer quarterly workshops aimed at children and teenager (and, in some cases, at their families), in order to bring them closer to the contemporary artistic languages of body and the new choreography. Tastings of dance, playful experiences, unpredictable encounters with local and international dance performers, curated by Mariachiara Raviola, artistic director of the project “La Piattaforma – La Città Nuova”. The guideline is the quote often repeated by Pina Bausch, who – guest of a Roma community in Rome in 1998 – was convinced to dance by a little girl: “Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost!”.
The first event, planned on September 26th as part of the Lavanderia’s open day, inaugurates the TANZ TANZ project under the aegis of the word TRUST. The dancers and choreographers Francesca Cola and Tommaso Serratore, starting from their respective (and distinctive) artistic languages, developed in the context of their performances, and from the personal creative experience reached during the quarantine, develop a game and dance proposal aimed at young audience.
4-4.50 p.m. WORKSHOP TIE UP. PLOTS TO THE FUTURE with Francesca Cola open to children over 6 years old, accompanied by a family member “During the quarantine I sent a message to ten loved ones with this request: ‘Would you give me a word that is beautiful to you? I can dance it. I don’t know how to knit but I can weave movements'”. For Francesca Cola, the word becomes gesture, rhythm and play with nature, to be offered to the participants as a dice to roll, a rhyme to sing, a carousel to turn.
5-5.50 p.m. WORKSHOP MR FURRY withTommaso Serratore open to children over 9 years old, accompanied by a family member Starting from the “protagonist” of his latest creation, Tommaso Serratore guides the children and their parents on a journey in order to discover the character and how it is created: posture, appearance, movement, rhythm, as well as the space and environment it inhabits.
– Courtyard | 6-6.30 p.m.
YOU CANNOT SUM UP UNTIL THE GAME ENDS performative practice shared with the group of Campi Creativi by Francesca Cinalli and Paolo De Santis
The practice consists in playing with a natural color raw wooden board, positioned on the sole of the foot, in search of a precarious, intimate and choral balance.
– Courtyard | 6.30-7 p.m.

Lavanderia a Vapore
December 3, 2023
We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience,
regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level.
These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible
to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific
disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML,
adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.
If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email
Screen-reader and keyboard navigation
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with
screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive
a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements,
alongside console screenshots of code examples:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website.
In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels;
descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups),
and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag
for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology.
To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on
as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.

Additional functions – we provide users the option to change cursor color and size, use a printing mode, enable a virtual keyboard, and many other functions.
Browser and assistive technology compatibility
We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and for MAC users.
Notes, comments, and feedback
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advancements. For any assistance, please reach out to
