On Friday April 21, 2017, I will participate to “Time for Books / Milan Book Fair”, the biggest Italian event for publishing companies and authors. At “Spazio Agorà”, Uelci area, I will present my new books. At 5 pm I will talk about “Pronto? Sono il librofonino”, published by I Quindici; it’s a funny novel for children: a cellphone tells stories of smombies, smartphones and cyber bullies. At 6 pm I will present “Francesco”, the first illustrated “Encyclopedia” about Pope Francis (4 volumes in large format, more than 500 pages and 550 great photographs, edited by Velar). The Pavilion of lectures is at Spazio Agora, No. 2, H 25 K 26. 2017 Milan Book Fair is in Milano Rho Fair.

ABOUT “TIME FOR BOOKS” IN MILAN

“Tempo di Libri’ (Time for Books) is the name of the new book fair that will take place in Milan from April 19-23, 2017. The fair has been organised at the Milan Rho trade fair centre after the long-established Turin book fair lost the confidence of Italian publishers earlier this year.  The programme is to be overseen by Chiara Valerio, Pierdomenico Baccalario and Giovanni Peresson with oversight from a scientific committee responsible for drawing up the guidelines for the general content of the event. The logo is of a book illuminated by the sun that doubles as a sun dial.

The new fair aims to promote a new “interactive” way of approaching books and reading, organisers said. “There will be the much-loved authors but we would like the public to take part,” said Renata Gorgani, president of the new Fabbrica del Libro in Milan. “We would like the fair to be a huge meeting place where non-readers also come,” she added. “I think it will be useful for Turin too that the fair is being held here,”

CANVAS ON A RED WALL: FROM AN ABSTRACT PHOTO TO A COMPLEMENT OF INTERIOR DESIGN

roberto-alborghetti-800x481

“Victims & martyrs. Kefalonia, 1943 – The blood tracks # 1”: abstract photo on canvas + mixed media, 90×57, by Roberto Alborghetti, Lacer/actions. From an image of torn and decomposed publicity posters to an “unmistakable complement of interior design and decoration…”. This is the magic of “Lacer/actions”, a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial signs and tokens.

Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions!
