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…”.

There’s a great expectation in Aprilia (near Rome, Italy) at the “Marconi” Primary School where on June 3 a unique and special exhibition will open displaying works created by autistic students.  We talked about this some weeks ago. Teacher Patrizia Sapri – assisted by children parents, colleagues and friends of the non-profit organization “Il Senso della Vita / The Sense of Life” – led a beautiful exsperience inspired by Roberto Alborghetti’s images (“Lacer /actions” project).

The “provocative pictures” about the decomposed publicity posters (and cracks) were de-constructed and re-created by autistic kids who entered the visual world of Roberto Alborghetti receiving suggestions and emotions and re-viewing images through the sense-organs. So they discovered an inner dimension to explore and learn. Music accompanied the lessons and students also created words and comments about feelings and sensations they felt while working on Roberto Alborghetti colorful works. 

Now, this incredible experience will be told through an exhibition and a special book which will introduce achievements and results.Visitors will have the opportunity to admire compelling works made by Erik, Massimo, Flavia, Gaia and Nicole, some of the kids who participated to the “Atelier of colors and emotions”.

Teacher Patrizia Sapri says: “The exhibition in Aprilia displays works made by autistic students. I studied in the past, and rediscovered in recent days, the great lesson coming from Temple Grandin, doctor and professor at Colorado State University (USA), bestselling author and autistic activist (in 2010 she was listed in the Time 100 list of the 100 most influential people in the world, for the “Heroes” category). She said that autistics are able to see what human beings don’t see. They see a “wonderful world” that people barely grasps. They perceive a series of visual stimuli that normal people can’t perceive. Autistics think in pictures. They live in a world of pictures and colors. That’s the reason why autistic kids are so fond of Roberto Alborghetti’s works which were re-created and re-lived using different tools and techniques. Based on their state of mind, they angrily painted or gently covered all spaces. In their mental order everything have to be perfect. And they have the wonderful gift to clearly see and perceive in advance – in their mind and heart – the same final work.”
