ADRIATIC SIDE, sea and castles in art

The Province of Bari is glad to present, as a partner of the project ADRISTORICAL LANDS, the extraordinary opening of Sannicandro Castle from 7th to 28th October 2013 where all the tourist itineraries of all the countries involved in the Cross Country Project, IPA Adriatic will be shown.

ADRIATIC SIDE: this is the name chosen for the six interventions of the artists summoned by the Province of Bari in the Castle of Sannicandro in Bari. They will have to work on a common theme: the relationship with the Adriatic Sea, the protagonist of the cooperation project. Adristorical Lands, in fact, aims at promoting the usage of the values belonging to both sides of the Adriatic in order to create a common territorial identity for tourism development.

The idea is to valorize the small medieval towns, the walled cities, the castles and the historical dwellings of the involved territories. ”Contemporary art – affirms Nuccio Altieri, Vice President of the Province of Bari – currently permeates all the big capitals of international tourism representing a tangible sign of a universal language that unifies our time. The interaction with the extraordinary past our land is rich of makes of Italy and Puglia one of the most wanted tourist attractions in the world. This is the idea of art and culture that I have been trying to consolidate for four years with Terra di Bari with great results in terms of social and economic growth, because I am sure that tourism and culture – he concludes – are among the most influent tools to relaunch the Country”.

The project’s curator, Fausta Maria Bolettieri, chose and invited six artists coming from Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and Poland: Iva Curic, Marcin Fajfruk, Gasper Jemec, Stefano Romano, Jonalda Spagno, Giuseppe Teofilo. The curatorial declared aim was to make the artists produce a project ad hoc for the exhibition spaces of Sannicandro Castle. A project strictly connected to the Adriatic sea, seen as a fundamental component of the social and economic development of Puglia, the Italian Regions and of all cross countries overlooking this sea and which are directly involved in the project (Albania, Montenegro, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina). Cooperation will actually be the protagonist of the wonderful manor, through the exhibition of the tourist itineraries of the areas involved in the project. Through the theme of castle and sea, in a cross way, the artists have to interpret the explosive strength of this ”big lake”, but above all the impact it had in contemporary society. The result was the creation inside the huge spaces inside the Castle of a tidy micro climate, thanks to the specific interventions of the artists: each work has its size and space which coexist in a perfectly precarious balance.
