“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.
