THAT ASTONISHING WORLD ON A WASTE CONTAINER: PICTURES FROM A “VISUAL ART” EXPERIENCE

 

This video presents images of a “visual art” experience I led with students of “Sylos” School Institute in Bitonto (Bari, Italy) directed by prof. Angela Maria Mangini. For my project-research named “Lacer/actions”, I guided them through the streets of the city, to discover that even a waste container hides an astonishing world, as shown in the clip…

On Friday 10th March, Nottingham City and Beeston welcomed Roberto Alborghetti, celebrated author, journalist, visual artist and official biographer of Pope Francis, on the occasion of the 3rd public showing, and second anniversary, of THE GHOST BUS short film.

The film entitled ‘Epic Voyage’, produced and presented by Roberto in collaboration with Bartons plc and ACT Int’l Group (Art Culture Tourism), was first shown in March 2015 at Bartons, Chilwell, gaining impressive recognition and publicity in Nottingham and around the world. Its second public showing and Italian premiere took place at Piancastagnaio, Siena Province in October 2015.

The GHOST BUS and Roberto returned on Friday for a series of presentations. The first showing took place at Nottingham City Council House (Members Lounge) after Roberto had the pleasure to meet and talk with the Lord Mayor of Nottingham, Councillor Mohammed Saghir, in his Parlour.

The Lord Mayor sent this message to Roberto: “Thank you so much for coming out to visit our city, one of the best in the World. I am glad you enjoyed your visit and am looking forward to welcoming you whenever you visit our city again. Look after yourself and take care. Regards, The Right Worshipful The Lord Mayor of Nottingham, Councillor Mohammed Saghir. You are always welcome Roberto!”

Barbara Barton, who accompanied her daughter Jeanie O’Shea, with Roberto, Marysia Zipser (Founder of ACT) and Caron Lyon into the Lord Mayor’s Parlour, said: “I’ve lived in Nottingham all my life and never been to see the Lord Mayor before or even seen the inside of the Council House! My thanks to all concerned as I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and the films really made my mind creative as I was seeing things in the patterns and colours which were in my imagination. Fascinating!”

After the showing of the short film, together with Ghost Bus “Seaside Town” (music composed/performed by the Barton family) and “Can I think of Love?” (Colours Nottingham) composed /sung by Jeanie Barton to the colourful images of Nottingham streets captured by Roberto, the few guests were taken on a wonderful tour of the 1929 Council House building.

Then on for more creative space, relaxation and tasty food at THiNK: at Cobden Chambers, Pelham Street, in the city centre, before departing for Beeston and the Ghost Bus films second presentation at Rudyards Tea House in the evening. Ghost Bus friends and guests then took a few steps further up the High Street to L’Oliva, Italian bar & bistro for a relaxed get-together. L’Oliva is now a firm favourite venue of Roberto’s whenever he visits Beeston, as this was his 4th time from Italy.

The GHOST BUS Project has been travelling and spanning bridges across UK – Italy since 2015, and now across the world with its sustainable art, cultural and tourism collaborations. The Ghost Bus film trailer says, “Can you believe this Art is from an old bus?” Images of Maps, Lands, Horizons and Skies on the bus are transferred in their natural state into ‘abstract’ art via macro-photographic lens by Roberto Alborghetti. So the visual adventures from the Land of Robin Hood continue…because the road never ends.

  • The Ghost Bus short film was also presentated at Chilwell School thanks to collaboration with the headteacher, Ian Brierly. In the wonderful “Chilwell Arts Theatre” Marysia Zipser lectured on Thursday 9th to all of Year 7s (about 150 x 11 year olds). But this is another story…

MACRO PHOTOS OF “PAVEMENT CRACKS”…VIDEO-TRIBUTE TO ANNIE LENNOX

 

They’re not paintings. They’re macro photos of pavement cracks by Roberto Alborghetti (from “Lacer/actions” project). “Pavement Cracks” (The Scumfrog Remix) by Annie Lennox. “Where is my comfort zone? A simple place to call my own. ‘Cause everything I want to be. Comes crashing down on me. And it don’t show up in the pavement cracks. I can’t even recognize my tracks. You and I can’t turn the whole thing back. Ooh I wish you well (Love don’t show in the pavement cracks. There will be no turning back)”.

Created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” project and research about torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, industrial matters and urban decomposition.
