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

Roberto Alborghetti has collected so far around the world more than 40.000 images.

Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographs or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages (as the work shown above) or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn publicity posters give new life to paper lacerations and decomposition.

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.

Location: Lake Como (2012)

***

The December solstice has influenced the lives of many people over the centuries, particularly through art, literature, mythology and religion. The December solstice is also known as the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere and the summer solstice in the southern hemisphere. In the northern hemisphere, the December solstice occurs during the coldest season of the year. Although winter was regarded as the season of dormancy, darkness and cold, the coming of lighter days after the winter solstice brought on a more festive mood. To many people, this return of the light was a reason to celebrate that nature’s cycle was continuing.

ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI - LACER7ACTIONS POSTCARDS #20

The Feast of Juul was a pre-Christian festival observed in Scandinavia at the time of the December solstice. Fires were lit to symbolize the heat, light and life-giving properties of the returning sun…  In England, Germany, France and other European countries, the Yule log was burned until nothing but ash remained. The ashes were then collected and either strewn on the fields as fertilizer every night until

Twelfth Night or kept as a charm and or as medicine…

  The present-day custom of lighting a Yule log at Christmas is believed to have originated in the bonfires associated with the feast of Juul.
