Mine(s) Colours


Name: Sabina Blasiotti

Nationality: Italian




The Zichuan’s Festival of Colours is a giant palette of clothes, manufactured by local adepts of the textile industry and craftsmanship, sitting atop the abandoned stone terraces. Part of the Shandong’s Mines Park programme developed by the government, the landscape intervention aims to grow the regional cultural, social, artistic and economic values and prospects.


In a spectacular showcase of different clothes and woven fabric, gems of the local culture

promote Shandong’s heritage and traditional artisanship. The internal community is brought

together in the realisation of the Mines ‘dress’, offering a unique opportunity for a collective

activity strengthening the social identity.


The large scale intervention transforms the abandoned quarries, to turn them from a large area of

ecological and spatial damage, to a work of art. The Zichuan’s Festival of Colours and its dramatic

visual impact on the landscape inspire and attract national and International artists and scholars.

The site is a worldwide attraction, ultimately providing the coevolution of regional economy and

global awareness of abandoned sites.
