The hotel is not one of those places where one specifically seeks art, such as museums or private galleries, but where one goes out of necessity or leisure‘ comment project curators Pantani-Surace and Paolo Parisi. “Bearing in mind the experiences in this direction that were made in the specific field of art between the 80s and 90s of the last century, we believe that this is all the more the case today, in a socio-economic context that has shown its limits in many respects Can the encounter between this innocent gaze and the artworks of the new generations, which makes us think about new ways of relating between ourselves and the existence of art, be mutual nourishment and practice methods of a comprehensive expansion of the field of action? share the languages ​​of art. Going forward, the project also intends to explore the areas closest to training, mixing participants’ pathways and curricula“.
