“Stone by Stone”
The works by Gianpietro Carlesso at Bari Castle

Event organised by the Province of Bari within the project Adristorical Lands

The exhibition “Stone by Stone” will be inaugurated on Thursday 19th December at 6 p.m. at the Norman Swabian Castle of Bari (press preview at 5 p.m.), within the cross-border cooperation project “Adristorical Lands”, by the President of Province of Bari Francesco Schittulli and by the Vice-President and Head of Culture of the Province of Bari, Nuccio Altieri.

Press Preview at 5 p.m.

For the first time in the South of Italy, eleven sculptures by the internationally known sculptor Giampetro Carlesso, whose works are part of the most important public and private collections of the world,  will be exhibited. Salvatore Buonomo, the Superintendent for the architectural and landscape heritage for the provinces of Bari, Barletta-Andria -Trani and Foggia, will attend the inauguration.

The Culture and Tourism Department of the Province of Bari has strongly wanted this event taking place in one of the symbol of the land of Bari, perfectly matching the cultural policies activated in the last years, aimed at valorising our important historical – cultural patrimony through an open dialogue with contemporary artistic expressions. The sinuous shapes of the marble blocks of Lasa, Carrara, Bardiglio, skilfully worked by Carlesso, will be actually displayed in the most ancient halls of Frederick’s Castle in Bari, thus creating an ideal link with the stone worked a thousand years ago.

During the exhibition preview, expected for the press at 5 p.m., “Castles Bari”, the App for Smartphone and Tablet telling the hundred-year-old history of Castles in the Land of Bari, one of the cross borders stop-over  contemplated by the project, will be presented.  The App, which can be downloaded on electronic devices but also usable through multimedia totem located in the castles, has been realised by the Corporation, always within the same project financed by the IPA Adriatic Programme, aiming at valorising the excellencies of the involved territories: other than the Adriatic Italian Regions Puglia, Abruzzo, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Marche, Molise and Veneto, there are Croatia, Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina,  Slovenia.

    Magdalena Abakanowicz: Every Tangle of…

    Art | March 17, 2023

    "The Abakans were a kind of bridge between me and the outside world. I could surround myself with them; I could create an atmosphere in which I somehow felt safe because they were my world." Magdalena Abakanowicz Tate Modern offers a rare opportunity to explore an extraordinary body of work by Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz known as Abakans. Made of organic materials such as horsehair, sisal and hemp rope, these complex three-dimensional forms broke new ground for art in the 1960s and 70s. Bringing together 26 of these radical works for the first time in the UK, the exhibition presents a forest of towering sculptures, enabling visitors to explore their ambiguous forms and earthy scents.

    Featured Artist: Graziano Ferrari

    Art | February 22, 2023

    Graziano Ferrari was born in Milan in 1958. His aptitude for drawing and painting is revealed early on, but many years will pass before it turns into a passion and becomes a profession. In fact, it was only at the time of his university studies that he made the decision to devote himself full time to painting. Supported by his family, who understood his need for him, he began the difficult path guided solely by the desire to find his own language that would allow him to bring out those contradictions that he was grasping and that he felt he had to clarify and denounce.

    I was born and raised in New Jersey and currently live in Miami, Florida with my husband. I have 3 adult sons.​ I have been drawing since I was a little girl. I would mindlessly draw on the margins of papers during class, during meetings, while on the phone or anytime I ​wanted to relax. Throughout most of my life, I never thought of myself as an artist. I thought of myself as someone who liked to draw, but never as an artist who liked to draw. Read more
