Keane – Celtic Life International article by Tom Langlands

Keane – Celtic Life International article by Tom Langlands

And though Keane’s work may be founded in Barga, its depth and resonance reaches far beyond the boundaries of this small and very beautiful city.

I first met the artist Keane quite by chance while enjoying a morning coffee at Aristodemo Casciani’s bar – known as Aristo’s – in Barga’s Piazza Salvi. It is remarkable how slowly the world turns under a hot Tuscan sun and striking up conversations with strangers is part of what breathes life into these medieval […]

Cento Anni dal Armistizio 1918-2018

Cento Anni dal Armistizio 1918-2018

Furono tanti i feriti e ancor più i morti. 650 mila. Un numero enorme. Una scia di sangue interminabile. Non c’è famiglia italiana che, in un modo o nell’altro, non sia stata colpita.

C’era scritto: “Vittoria!”. La stessa parola che urlava a squarciagola, senza sosta. La gente usciva dalle case, accorreva a sentire. E il ragazzo iniziava […]
