OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEnjoy this photo-gallery about the special night-event which took place on Sunday, July 14, in the historic heart of Ambivere, Bergamo country, not so far from Milan (this place is quoted in scripts dating back to year 923!). Food excellences, Irish music and a taste of my art (a surprise public exhibition of my Lacer/actions works) drew a lot of people.  

In a picturesque setting between ancient walls, medieval towers and the “Countess Palace”, with a concert performed by “Fuich Irish Music” band, three Historical Places proposed delicious menus representing Antica Osteria dei Cameli (founded in 1856), Trattoria Visconti (founded in 1932) and Caffè del Fiola (founded in 1887), Historical Places which has been highlighted and recognized in national and international publications, as Michelin Guide (Antica Osteria dei Cameli). Really good wines were served by “Azienda Agricola Sant’Egidio” from Fontanella di Sotto il Monte (Bg).   

My solo show displayed in an “open-air space” 20 works from “Lacer/actions” Project about torn and decomposed publicity posters and urban tokens. My art usually comes from the streets and through this surprise public exhibition it went back to the streets…  This special event – which had a charity purpose for “Ponte di Stelle” Association – was promoted by Ambivere Council and the three Historical Places.

MY SURPRISE PUBLIC EXHIBITION IN A BEAUTIFUL MEDIEVAL SQUARE WITH THE PARTICIPATION OF 3 HISTORICAL PLACES AND THEIR FOOD EXCELLENCES…

A surprise public exhibition dedicated to my works… It will happen on Sunday, July 14, during an evening event with food excellences, good Irish music and a special performance with my “Lacer/actions” artworks. The venue is an ancient and fascinating place: a beautiful square in the historic heart of Ambivere, “The Countess Palace”, Bergamo country, not so far from Milan; this place is  documented and quoted in scripts dating back to year 923!

In this picturesque setting between ancient walls and medieval towers, three Historical Places will present some delicious menus: this is “GustAmbivere”. Master chefs and barmen will represent Antica Osteria dei Cameli (founded in 1856), Trattoria Visconti (founded in 1932) and Caffè del Fiola (founded in 1887). These Historical Places has been highlighted and  recognized in national and international publications, as Michelin Guide (Antica Osteria dei Cameli). A special selection of wines will be served by Azienda Agricola S.Egidio from  Fontanella-Sotto il Monte. 

I was invited to have a “solo show” focusing on some of my works from “Lacer/actions” Project about torn and decomposed publicity posters and urban tokens. I think these historic square and places, evoking the passage of times, are an ideal space to enhance the contrasting language of colors and shapes of my compositions. My art comes from the streets and now it goes back to the streets, along these ancient streets… This special event – which has a charity purpose for “Ponte di Stelle”Association – is promoted by Ambivere Council and the three Historical Places.

“KEFALONIA, 1943”: MY ARTWORK TO REMEMBER AN UNPUNISHED MASSACRE AND THE STATE CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE

 

 Dr. Srini Pillay – Harvard psychiatrist, author, brain imaging researcher and columnist – says that art is a form of healing and it may help us to face tragedies and loss… I dedicated this artwork to Kefalonia massacre ( title: Kefalonia, 1943 – Victims & martyrs. The blood tracks # 1; canvas/mixed media, 87×57, Lacer/actions Project). My father Battista is a survivor of that terrible tragedy in which died 9.000 Italian soldiers (1943) killed and exterminated by German Nazis.

 Saturday January 28, 2012 – in the same days devoted in Italy to remember Shoah victims – Battista native Municipality dedicates him a conference and a ceremony (h.8,45 pm, Centro Sociale, Ambivere, Bergamo, Milan Area). Italian Council of Ministers Presidency has recently confered to Battista the “Medal of honor” established for Italian civilians and militaries deported and interned in nazi concentration camps.
