Gli Anelli Mancanti (The Missing Rings) is a cultural center with free services for immigrants and refugees in Florence, Italy.
Their language classes are volunteer-taught and no documents are required for enrollment. Some students come sporadically, whereas others have been attending for years. Classes are made up of people from all over the world, and many begin their studies at a basic phonetic level.
This is the story of the students, teachers, and their unique paths that have crossed in pursuit of a common language.

WORK(IN)SPACE is a new series of exhibition projects by SACI 2nd-Year MFA Candidates in Studio Art, Photography and Communication Design as part of the Professional Practicum Seminar. Students will work directly with SACI's Maidoff Gallery to critically engage with the challenges offered by preparing an exhibition. Working in a one-to-one relationship with SACI Instructors Daria Filardo and Pietro Gaglianò, students will step outside of their studio environment to rethink their work in an exhibition setting, learning to consider all the aspects, limitations and needs of the given space to achieve the best final result.
WORK(IN)SPACE will be held in the Maidoff Gallery and will include all phases of the exhibition, from the planning, to the installation and the opening of the solo show. Visitors are invited to attend the opening of the exhibitions, or visit during opening hours.
Monday-Friday 9-19 / Saturday-Sunday 13-19
