Borghi of Italy – #NO(F)EARTHQUAKE”
Concilio Europeo dell’Arte | InParadiso Art Gallery
Giardini della Biennale
26 May — 25 November 2018
“Borghi of Italy – #NO(F)EARTHQUAKE” is a Collateral Event of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. The exhibition, promoted by Concilio Europeo dell’Arte, is concerned on the seismic prevention and safety of our artistic heritage, and on the revitalization of those sites that are highly representative of our architectural tradition.
Symbol of the energy and commitment in safeguarding the historical and cultural heritage of Italian hamlets is the installation ‘Albero Sonico’ by the italian artist Marco Guglielmi Reimmortal inside Concilio Europeo dell’Arte gallery space (InParadiso Art Gallery) at the entrance to Giardini della Biennale.
Also the artwork suspended to the ceiling (‘Operazione Dimmi Amatrice’) is dedicated to the ancient village of Amatrice in Lazio, destroyed by the earthquake in 2016. This project is the result of the artist’s collaboration with the municipality of Amatrice and the Department of History, Representation and Restoration of Architecture of Università di Roma La Sapienza.
Curator for ‘Albero Sonico’, ‘Operazione Dimmi Amatrice’ is Stefania Minutaglio.
