Cracks is part of Roberto Alborghetti’s Lacer/actions project-research about decomposed publicity posters, natural crevices and scratches, urban and industrial matters… This clip is dedicated to the wonderful world of cracks magnifications. The images are not paintings or digitally made works, but abstract photos of the reality. And of the cracks around us… The wonderful quote is from “Anthem”, great track by Leonard Cohen. Clip by Roberto Alborghetti.

HOPES was born in a rainy night, in Florence, during a long talk…
We were both thinking about life, world, art, fashion, design…
We asked ouselves about a possible way to say, to communicate, to do, to express and to make something new… for us, for the others, for the people. For the world.
So we dreamed…
HOPES is a first answer to our dreams.
HOPES is an open space for freedom.
HOPES is the place where we want to build our opportunities.
HOPES is the name of a new collection.
HOPES is visual art.
HEPES is music.
HOPES is where we’ll tell our creativity.
HOPES is the garden where we’ll see growing up our projects.
HOPES is the story of our goals, events and meetings.
HOPES is a point of views and visions.
HOPES is a trip throughout the different languages of art expression.
HOPES is on open space: join us and share your art, your creativity and your dreams…

During a recent visit to Cesenatico – beautiful Italian town on Adriatic Coast, internationally famous for its wonderful Port Channel designed by Leonardo Da Vinci – I was captured by a sort of “open air art installation”… It showed incredible colors that I immediately fixed on my camera for my “Lacer/actions” research about torn posters and urban signs.
As you may see in this photogallery, I took pictures from a disfigured traffic sign. It was located in the centre of the town. I was really struck by the way the passage of times (and the works on the street) attacked it ruthlessly…
Yes, that defaced traffic sign may be considered an example of some human uneasiness (and the fact that passers-by didn’t noticed it at all, confirms my thought)… So, enjoy some abstract images from this spontaneous and public art installation in which it’s possible to trace colors and shapes reminding us some modern art streams … BUT they are natural, realistic, random and not manipulated images, as all the 80.000 pics I took so far for my project…

Press Release 10TH September 2015
from ACT Group (Art-Culture-Tourism) Nottingham, UK
A beautiful visual adventure is budding from the Land of Robin Hood to the Land of Ghino di Tacco in Tuscany. From the much lauded March 27th GHOST BUS SHOW and UK short films premiere at Nottingham and its collaboration between celebrated visual artist Roberto Alborghetti, ACT Group (Art-Culture-Tourism) and Bartons plc, an exciting international abstract art gallery is travelling along the road bridging England to Italy, via an old rusty bus. An exciting multi art, culture and tourism show that will be starting on Wednesday 21 October with the ACT Tuscany GRAND TOUR and finishing on Wednesday 28 October.
In the middle weekend of the tour, 24 & 25 October, at Mount Amiata, where the extinct volcano resides over this stunning landscape, there is taking place, at the medieval hill topped town of Piancastagnaio, a wonderful mayorial reception and tour offered to the people of Beeston, Nottingham, East Midlands and from all over England, with descending visitors from Italy and all over Europe.
On Sunday 25 October evening, in collaboration with Osa Onlus, the Comune of Piancastagnaio, his Major Luigi Vagaggini, the highlight of the tour will be the ITALIAN short film premiere of THE GHOST BUS followed by an explosive ART FASHION & DESIGN SHOW by Roberto Alborghetti and international couturier Mitrani Yarden, fashion designer and artist.
The huge publicity derived from this great collaboration of Italian visual artist, Beeston based art-culture-tourism group and an old rusty 1950s bus once operated by Bartons, has led to Art-Culture-Tourism “twinning talks” between Nottingham and Tuscany. In fact Beeston with Piancastagnio, Nottingham with Siena, East Midlands region with Mount Amiata region. And these “talks” will be progressed and ACTivated during the Tuscany GRAND TOUR.
A visual treat is in store for those booking and participating in this road and landscape adventure bringing together England and Italy. The writing is on the wall… follow the RENAISSANCE to the heart of Tuscany!
“The road never ends…only our vision does.” (A.Reddy)
