Il libro

The Fountains of Za’atari is a multidimensional project from artist Margherita Moscardini that has been in development since 2015, based on research into refugee camps as urban spaces that are destined to last. The Za’atari refugee camp was founded in 2012, located in a semi-desert area of northern Jordan, to house Syrians fleeing conflict in their home country and it is recognised as the fourth-largest city in Jordan in terms of its area.
This project aims to establish a system through which local governments and civic institutions can buy life-size sculptures that reproduce the various courtyards with fountains in the Za’atari camp, for display in public spaces across Europe. These sculptures should receive special jurisdiction that includes elements of extraterritoriality.

The project The Fountains of Za’atari includes a sculpture permanently installed in Parco Alcide Cervi in Reggio Emilia (since 14 April 2019), a temporary exhibition at Collezione Maramotti (14 April – 28 July 2019), this publication in English, and the corresponding Italian edition.
