Da cosa si percepisce il valore di un’opera ? Condividere un valore attraverso l’opera! Donare come atto di Provocazione! Donare x Provocare, Provocare una Percezione! […]

The #loveproject arrives in Siena

The #loveproject arrives in Siena

The Love Project in the cradle of the Renaissance - The plan is to place two paintings in five of the most important piazzas of Tuscany’s five most important cities: Florence, Siena, Livorno, Pisa and Lucca. Anyone who wants them can take them away, at no cost. Absolutely free. This month: Siena starting from the Pretto Prosciutteria and finishing at the Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena - the oldest surviving bank in the world.

The most conventional chapter in the saga of the Love Project was the exhibition that opened it — and even that had its unusual twists. On the 13th and the 14th of June last year, the well-known local artists Keane and Fabrizio da Prato inaugurated a joint exhibition of 100 paintings. The venue was not a gallery in Barga or Lucca, […]

Standing in the background this weekend in the deserted 13th century church in the long-deserted (and now slowly gentrifying) village of Isola Santa, rising like a ghostly medieval wraith over a lake deep in the forested Apuan Alps was the figure of the Barga musician, Andrea Guzzoletti. He was there to add his particular form […]
