THE OCTAGONAL BAPTISTERY (XI CENTURY) ON LAKE COMO: THE BEAUTIFUL SETTING FOR MY UPCOMING SOLO SHOW

 

My upcoming solo exhibition – “Colors Of An Apocalypse 2015″ – will take place in a beautiful setting: the amazing Romanesque Baptistery on Lake Como, Italy. My show is scheduled for 3 days, on July 3-4-5,  in the beautiful Lenno town, in the historical center –  50 meters from the lake shore! – where we admire one of the most stunning examples of Romanesque art in Northen Italy. It stands on the left side of the parish Church, where we may find an incredibile Romanesque crypt.

BANNERThe Baptistery is dedicated to St. John (The Baptist) and built in the 11th Century. Its structure looks incredibly simple and essential: we see a squared bell tower and an apse pointed to north. The octagonal plant has a simbolic meaning: in fact number eight coincide with the 7 days of creation plus the one of the Resurrection. Other characteristics signs: the vault, the portal with his three archs, and the inside where you can find fragments of medieval frescos and a baroque pictorial cycle.

The octagonal Baptistery and its enchanting structure will give strenght and evocative power to my exhibition which will show 25 works from my “Lacer/actions” project. Every artwork will be introduced quoting a phrase  from “The Apocalypse of John”. Images and words to suggest a trip through hopes and tragedies of human life and beings.

Follow the flock of doves… “The Apocalypse” is approachin’…

100 DAYS IN THE MEDIEVAL TUSCANY FORTRESS: SCENES FROM “COLORS OF AN APOCALYPSE” SHOW – THE CLIP

***

By Marco Rossi

“Colors of An Apocalypse” – the Roberto Alborghetti exhibition hosted in the ancient and picturesque Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) on Mount Amiata, in Tuscany (PiancastagnaioSiena, Italy) – ends today after 100 days. The show has been exceptionally extended due to the great interest from people and media. 
About 7.000 visitors have taken turns in the rooms of the charming manor, discovering the provocative artistic language of Roberto Alborghetti, professional journalist and writer, who for years has been collecting realistic images about the “decomposition of publicity posters”, as the subtitle of the exhibition tells.
Proposed and promoted by Piancastagnaio Municipality, Osa Onlus and Pro Loco, with the support of the Province of Siena , “Colors of An Apocalypse” has sparked an unexpected interest outside of the usual italian art circle and the current logics which manage the traditional promotion  of artistic expression.
“Colors of an Apocalypse” exhibition displayed forty artworks (canvases,  lithographs, collages and three special limited-edition silk scarves) created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions Project”.  Along the seven rooms, people had the way to know the meaning of an unusual research based on observation and reproduction of the decomposition of publicity posters and urban tokens on city walls. 

Through his works Roberto Alborghetti investigates  the great Babel of ripped and lacerated colors and words in order to grasp the chromatic energy, revitalizing what we usually consider a rejection or a disturbing element (for the eyes and the urban landscape).

MIDNIGHT LIGHTS AT THE MEDIEVAL CASTLE TO SAY THAT LIFE AND WORLD (AND MY SHOW) WILL GO ON…

ALDOBRANDESCA FORTRESS, TUSCANY, ITALYALDOBRANDESCA FORTRESS, TUSCANY, ITALY198 (2)

This enchanting castle – which is hosting Roberto Alborghetti’s “Colors of an Apocalypse” Exhibition – tonight will be enlighted to say to the world that the life goes on… And the art show too (it will be opened to visitors until January 15, 20013). Rocca Aldobrandesca (in Piancastagnaio, Siena, Tuscany, Italy) becomes tonight an outstanding symbol of the times (and of the life). It was built in XIII Century, but it still well and alive… And it is stronger than Maya prophecies…

But let’s know something more about this fascinating fortress, one of the most impressive Medieval Italian castle, a perfect location for Roberto Alborghetti ‘s show. Since the 11th century the area of southern Tuscany around the castle of Piancastagnaio was the object of the expansionist politics of the powerful feudal family of the Aldobrandeschi. The whole territory is rich in historical remains tied to these potentates. Between the possessions of the Aldobrandeschi, Piancastagnaio was almost always the site of allotted to the noble family from the monks of the Abbey of S.Salvatore since the beginning of the year 1000. Subsequently it was claimed from the Viscounts of Campiglia and during the 13th century it became object of ulterior disputes between the cities of Siena and Orvieto.

The Orvietani gained control of the powerful fortress in the 1303 and maintained it for around fifty years. At this point they entered in the quarrel with the heirs of the Aldobrandeschi, the Orsini of Pitigliano, to       oppose the new aims of the Senese Republic. Only between the years 1415 and 1430 Siena finally succeeded to taking possession of Piancastagnaio,       that was attached to the Capitanato of Radicofani. In 17th century the settlement became a Granducal fief and finally, with the Leopoldine reforms, the chief town of the the same community.

The country town has a circular form, once had surrounding wall enclosure with alternating square towers and four gates. The walls and the gates       have been almost entirely demolished, with the exception of few lines, three towers, two with semicircular shape and the other squared, the main       city Gate beside the Rocca and other three minor Gates in the southern front of the walls: Porta Romana, Porticciola e Porta di Voltaia.

In the highest point of the inhabited area rises still today the mighty Rocca Aldobrandesca. The construction has a square form and is endowed with tall and strongly inclined walls. From the enclosure rises two towers , the greatest, either as thickest, had functions of keep, the other, in the opposite angle, defended the underlying gate of access to the city.

The whole complex was endowed with machicoulis and battlement, still today almost intact. The Rocca is under good condition thanks to careful work of restoration.
