Cassata Drone (#CD; #CassataDrone) is an independent exhibition involving Raqs Media Collective, MDR (Maria D Rapicavoli) and Stefano Cagol within a private house that, for the first time, opens itself to the public.
Cassata Drone is conceived by g. olmo stuppia and curated by Giovanni Rendina. The three artists will be interacting with one room each transforming them into three different immersive installations. Built in the fascist style, the apartment is located at 21 Via Malta, 90133, Palermo, Sicily . The project was created to investigate the layers of the typical Palermo cake “Cassata Siciliana” and the presence of military drones (UCAV) in Sicily as its contemporary representation.
Cassata Drone collateral program counts a series of complex activities – based in Sicily – as Walkscape, Workshop, Radioemission, Publications among others.
After the great #CASSATACONNECTION official closing party feat the great Joie Iacono and Alexander Darkish of the exhibition at #VILLAVIRGINIA, we are proud to be able to continue the exhibition opening up until the beginning of October 2018.

06.05.2018 The Party Wall performance by Corinne Mazzoli at Sigonella Nas 1 US Navy bridge (Catania, Sicily). The Party Wall was designed during the international residency at Casa Rio by the Venice based artist. The Party Wall is a performance born out from a reflection on the global phenomenon of urban fencification and the militarization of public security, with a focus on Rio de Janeiro during a five-week residency at Casa Rio. During the performance in Sigonella, where is present a military drone base, the artist transformed her performance in a new site specific context.
