Specie spontanee (spontaneous species) was an artistic work and a collective experience which re-interpreted one of the former psychiatric hospital Rizzeddu's pavilion – currently A.F.A.R.P. main office – in a poetic way and to give a new conceptualization to the structure itself, previously marked by a profound sense of oppression and confinement. The work aimed at intervening in the area through re-evaluation and settle operations. At the same time the intent was to create an open space no more marginal, which a new memory could come out from, suggested by the local community and users of the former hospital which aliment(e)azione collaborated with for the project.
