11 September 2021 - Landscape Talk for Suitcase Project

Presentation Suitcase Project
h 05.30pm - 06.30pm

followed by a guided tour along the route


Landscapes in a suitcase

The Suitcase Project is an itinerant exhibition project born in 2018 from a series of suggestions on the meeting of a suitcase with contemporary art.   Suitcase Project collects small-format works by several emerging and established artists, called to weave the theme of the journey according to the poetics of each, for a set of intimate and evocative works.  The suitcase as an object related to art is present in Duchamp’s Boîte en-valise, in the work-suitcase of Nicola De Maria, and is the means designed for the transport of Munari’s travel sculptures.

11 September 2021 - Landscape Talk with Francesco Giarrusso

Landscape Talk with Francesco Giarrusso 
h 09.00pm


We always photograph what we already know, what we have already seen: always late with ourselves, we chase the life that slips through our fingers. Out of sync; out of field: photography cuts through time and space, giving us back a physical trace of our passage, an emanation of the world that crumbles before our eyes. Where is time? Where is it found? Where do things end when things end? The memory of what I have seen is confused with the image that I have fixed: childhood, the ghosts of a life that I seem to have lived but that perhaps I have only dreamed, the land furrowed by the plough, the ruins scattered among the hills burnt by man and the sun. I imagine the people who lived in that big house on the side of the road, the joys, the sorrows, the sweat of the fields.... Who will guard their memory? I think of the deadly voracity of time, of the inexorable destiny we are facing, of the thousands and thousands of generations that were and will be buried in the dust and of which nothing will ever be known......................

Landscape Talk with Cristina Parodi and Francesca Senette
h 07.00pm

Francesca and Cristina are two women known by the general public as journalists who at some point in their life decide to change their path becoming entrepreneurs, Cristina founds Crida and Francesca Trybe.

Their paths cross on several occasions, but the occasion that made them meet as people and not only as professionals was practicing yoga together.

In this talk Francesca and Cristina will talk about their relationship with well-being, nature and the cities they carry in their hearts and how their lifestyle has helped them to find the connection with themselves.

18 September 2021 - Landscape Talk with Raoul Iacometti

Landscape Talk with Raoul Iacometti
h 09.00pm


"Photographs and other stories..." is photography, but not only. Images, words, gestures and sounds mix and merge into a single experience, it is contamination, which feeds knowledge and awareness. "Photographs and other stories ..." was born from, with and for photography, thanks to intuition and desire to get this art out of the doors, often too thick, of mere technique, of the rules "above everything and everyone". Raoul tries to talk about emotions, those that live inside every shot, trying to tell his own way of conceiving his job. He tries to break down the pillars of this fascinating art, trying to share his "creed": photography should not only be shapes and calculations but it should be a story. A story to be seen and told.

21 september - Landscape Talk An unexpected protagonist: the landscape

Landscape Talk
An unexpected protagonist: the landscape
Giovan Battista Moroni
h 05.00pm - 07.00pm


During the talk  will be investigated from different points of view the landscape that moves, active protagonist in the paintings of Giovan Battista Moroni. His unique portrait of the Seriani landscape of yesterday and today. A feeling of the landscape and the participation of nature in human events that traces a red thread that runs from the great artist towards the poetry of Testori, contemporary art, up to the cinema of Ermanno Olmi.


Barbara Mazoleni, cultural designer
Orietta Pinessi, art historian


in collaboration with
Micaela Vernice, art historian
