Guest Writer: STEFANO ALBERTI

Hearty agreement and great success in Anzio (Rome) for the exhibition “Scratches, Cracks and Lacer-actions / Between dream and reality” inspired by Roberto Alborghetti artworks for the project co-ordinated and carried out by Professor Patrizia Sapri. The show was held at the  Professional Institute “Marco Gavio  ​Apicio” where a series of pictures told a journey through “special painterly colors and materials” and the singular experience involving children with disabilities and carriers of the Syndrome of Autism Spectrum. The initiative was made ​​possible thanks to the support of the Rotary Club of Roma Golfo di Anzio, Nettuno, which has included the activities in “Anzio for Autism” project .

Patrizia Sapri led with passion and enthusiasm the group of the magnificent seven little artists  who have re-composed and re-built works from “Lacer / actions” Project by Roberto Alborghetti. Kids re-viewed with their creativity images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, scratches and “urban signs”. Patrizia Sapri, teacher and curator, says about the workshop: “ My job has the aim to start from the healthy part of the person and developing residual capacity. We search for a meaningful relationship between color and emotions. Limits are transformed into expressive skills, communication, art… Roberto Alborghetti works have the emotional power to establish a right condition to create and to act. Yes, my special students like so much Roberto’s colors, scratches and cracks. But don’t ask me why…”.

  1. This is such a moving post it’s taken some time to leave a mindful comment. It is so well crafted the mystery of autism doesn’t seem a mystery… the piano music seem to move the mind into sync with the motion.

    Such color, such sensitivity… and now, i have to cry a bit, more. Life is beautiful; thanks to you for knowing how to reveal that beautfy, my friend.

    • Thank you so much Meredith for your touching comment that I’ll be forwarding to teacher Patrizia and her special children. I was in doubt to post the clip… But the moving comments and reactions I’ve received are telling me that I did a right choice. We need to see these pictures. Because we need to know. I think this clip may be a great therapy for us, and a way for children to express themselves if not with words. Thanks again!
