GUERRILLA ARCHITECTURE, a two-week product design workshop led by WAR in collaboration with RomaEuropa Festival (REF), was focused on the role of architecture and design in developing a marketing strategy, especially in a hyper-signed context and within a hyper-competitive market.
The Romeuropa Foundation, though being one of the most prestigious institutions concerning the promotion of art, theatre, music, and dance in Europe, faces the challenge of being known in a city complex as Rome can be.
Sourcing inspiration from the latest Guerrilla Marketing strategy, theorized by Jay Conrad Levinson in 1984, and brought to fame in Italy by Luther Blisset collective performances, the students were asked to design a movable device to promote the Festival all around the city.
