5.000 PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY VISITED ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI EXHIBITION AT THE TUSCANY CASTLE. AND THE SHOW GOES ON…

By Marco Rossi

Over 5.000 people have already visited “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). Also in consideration of the growing interest and attention and the huge media coverage, the show has been exceptionally extended until January 15, 2013.

What someone has already called the “Italian artistic event” of the latter part of the year, it was developed with the web support (Roberto Alborghetti blog passed 70.000 visitors; his YouTube channel counted over 13,000 downloads) and the young people involvement. Over one thousand students 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 art circle and free from the current logics which manage the traditional promotion  of artistic expression. “Colors of an Apocalypse” exhibition displays forty artworks (paintings, lithographs, collages and three special limited-edition silk scarves) created by Roberto Alborghetti with the intriguing and fascinating language of his “Lacer/actions Project”.  Along the seven rooms, people have the way to know the meaning of an artistic research based on observation and reproduction of the decomposition of publicity posters and urban “signs” on the city walls.

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

LACER/ACTIONS ON CANVASES: I’VE UPDATED MY PHOTOGALLERY

ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI – LACER/ACTIONS: CANVASES – UPDATED PHOTOGALLERY

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs.

Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), scanned in videoclips  or “re-constructed” on collages, the details of torn posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition, as you may see in the updated photogallery dedicated to canvases. Roberto Alborghetti has been collected so far more than 40.000 images.

In these months 32 canvases are desplayed at Roberto Alborghetti Exhibition (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) taking place at the enchanting Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy); the show has been extended till January 15, 2013.

OVER A THOUSAND STUDENTS RUN AT THE TUSCANY CASTLE VISITING ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI SHOW / THE “REVOLUTIONARY CHOICE” TO BRING ART TO YOUNG PEOPLE

by Marco Rossi

Over a thousand students from various regions of Italy have recently visited “Colors of an Apocalypse / The Decomposed Publicity Posters”, the Roberto Alborghetti exhibition going on at the impressive Aldobrandesca Fortress in Piancastagnaio, Tuscany (Italy). This extraordinary young people flow coincided with the final events of the XIV edition of “Penne e Video Sconosciuti” (Unknown Pens and Videos) a national Festival promoted by Osa Onlus and the City of Piancastagnaio (Siena). Several school delegations, from primary to high school, had the pleasure of being accompanied on a visit personally by Roberto Alborghetti, who illustrated and described aspects, contexts and realities of his artistic research.

It was a truly amazing experience which brought students into the language of a particular artistic expression. As someone pointed out, it really was a revolutionary choice to see an artist dialoguing and opening his world to the new generations. Was it also an attempt to break rules and taboos which sometimes condemn art in the usual circle of insiders? Yes, Roberto Alborghetti swam against the current, with incredible results: how many other italian art shows recorded in a few days such a high influx of young people? 

Over a thousand students entered through the halls of the impressive XIII Century Tuscany castle, touching with hand – in the true sense of the term – canvases, colors and materials. This is also an unusual way to know and living the language of art, without filters, barriers and conditionings.  

“Colors of an Apocalypse / The Decomposed Publicity  Posters” exhib presents forty artworks (paintings, lithographs, collages and three special limited-edition silk scarves) created by Roberto Alborghetti with the intriguing and fascinating language of his “Lacer/actions Project”. It’s an astonishing research which explores the surprising  world of natural signs, shapes and colors left on the walls along the streets. Students who went up to Aldobrandesca Fortress, in Tuscany, are really left open-mouthed in front of the novelty of this research, in which completely random colors, signs and forms are the key to experience emotions and  feelings.
