Realization of intensive master classes / workshops at MaTeMù, CIES Center for Youth Aggregation and presentation of the results of the laboratories in cultural spaces active in Rome



Promotion of inclusion, dialogue and social integration between young between young people from different social and cultural backgrounds; sensitization of the population of the Esquilino community and not on issues related to ArtEducation.


158 youths between the ages of 11 and 25 (Italians, foreigners, second-generation immigrants, youth living in relief camps or community homes) who frequent the CAG MaTeMù.


MaTeMù is a CIES youth centre located in the Esquilino quarter of Rome where many immigrants from all over the world hang out. It is a laboratory for ideas and initiatives where youths from various cultures and places can spend their free time experimenting with their creativity in a place where differences are seen as values and stimuli for the exploration of new opportunities.

From 2013 to 2018, AMI supported MaTeMù in the realization of various artistic workshops – urban dance, music (percussions, strings, saxophones), voice and rap and interdisciplinary laboratories as Stepping Rap, Poetry Slam & Impro, Drum & Dance – operating every afternoon at the CAG MaTeMù. Over time, a process of socialization has occurred that has also resulted in the creation of a group called “Matemusik Band,” proof that artistic expression works as a draw and a catalyst of energy and positive motivation. In fact, music is a powerful instrument for integration and communication, enabling people to overcome many of the limits imposed by social conflict and intolerance.

In 2019, AMI supports the opening of MaTeMù to the territory and the city through the realization of 8 intensive Masterclasses / workshops with artists of the highest level in the world of theater, music, dance, literature and the presentation of the results of the laboratories in cultural spaces active in Rome.
