RESCUE! it is an artistic and human project, born in 2019 as a performance - "La Rotta del Cibo" -, created by the actor and musician Vicente Cabrera together with the Ass. Eco dalle Città (RePoPP) - Association that since 2017 has created an important project against food waste and the recovery-valorization-distribution of surplus food in Porta Palazzo daily market (Turin)- to transmit the values of the Association and personal stories of the RePoPP team. They are African (EcoMori) and Italian (Sentinelle dei Rifiuti) guys who work together to distribute for free to the citizens the withered food that would otherwise be thrown away. This is a project that has given a valid response to the waste of market surplus food, also making a contribution to the integration of immigrant citizens.

The performance borrows the values of RePoPP to develop an artistic methodology against "experiential waste". It feeds on the stories, songs and thoughts of those who have gone on a journey and of those who work as collectors in the market every day.

"The word 'recupero' - rescue also means redemption/ransom, of unsold fruit and vegetables but also of stories, songs, tales of the people who work for a solidarity ecosystem"

Over the time, in 2020 thanks to the meeting between Vicente Cabrera and other artists, as him, who left their country and immigrated to the city of Turin, the RESCUE Project! it becomes more ambitious by turning in a mutual support network between artists and city realities. RESCUE! it is a place where to find practical answers regarding waste and redemption/ ransom thanks to Art and its discipline.

“seek, collect, distinguish, arrange, give”
