Lego® Serious Play® is a methodology that can be used to solve a broad array of complex issues.  At Restauro 2013, the trade fair for the Art of Restoration and Conservation of our Cultural and Environmental Heritage, the first and most important Italian event dedicated to the art of restoration and the conservation of Italian artistic heritage taking place in Ferrara (Italy), Lego® Serious Play® is being used to improve the understanding of heritage and reveal brand new dimensions of heritage.

The Department of Architecture at University of Ferrara, together with Tekehub, and with the High Tecnology Network of Emilia Romagna, is working on an experimental exhibition stand to be presented at the Restauro 2013 in Ferrara: a new format and new contents will wait for visitors attending the event on March 20-23rd 2013. The leading idea is to explore concepts related to Heritage using innovative means based on methodologies that enhance knowledge sharing and meaning making.

For four days, in a multi-functional and colourful space, designed to explicitly recall LEGO bricks, using LEGO SERIOUS PLAY, participants will be involved in a number of events, speeches and thought provoking activities to encourage the discussion and improve our understand of what is Heritage. The project is called B4 – which plays on the idea of Bricks for… and the assonance with the world Before.
