NAPLES – The second edition of the festival-exhibition ‘Eoliè 22 – Arte letteratura e società’ (Eoliè 22 – Art literature and society) opens on Saturday July 16 in the heart of the Mediterranean. The organizers of the event have chosen the Norman cloister of the Benedictine monks on the island of Lipari as a symbolic place to continue to pursue the path of research, reconstruction and transformation begun last year, in the name of the arts. visuals, poetry and music.
The event favors an internal dimension which makes it possible to rediscover excellence and talent, three key words common to the artists at the center of this second edition of the festival, guiding them in their approach, the organizers indicated in a press release: “ex- celler”, or expressing desires, gathering and assembling pieces of existence, trying to recompose acorns, each with its own mosaic to offer to others as a trace of a possible path to follow together.
The columns and capitals of the cloister will host, until August 16, the work of the sculptor of angels, Ernesto Lamagna, Irene Lanza and its fragments of the sea, the nostalgia of the origins of the installation of Guido Airoldi, the light power and the enchantment of reality in the paintings of Davide Frisoni, the urns of Alessandro Motta, the astonishment for the world of animals and its colors represented in the large paintings by Valentina De Martini, the magnetic sculptures and the strength of Francesco Pessina, all the colors and smells of Sicily represented in the ceramics of Nicolò Morales.
The opening of the exhibition ‘I dialoghi di Eolié 2022 – Eccellenza, talento, merito’ (Dialogues of Eolié 2022 – Excellence, talent, merit) is scheduled for July 16: curator Francesco Malfitano will meet the poet and writer Davide Rondoni, Carmelo Travia, a candidate for the David di Donatello Prize 2022 with the song ‘Just you’, the singer, actress and researcher Miriam Palma, Dario Sangiolo, the director of the oncology service of the IRCCS Candiolo (TO). The event was heavily promoted by curator Francesco Malfitano, a lawyer and art lover from Lipari, who lives in Rome. He explained: “This year we have tackled a close war that we did not expect, bringing us back to the rawest reality that we hoped never to encounter, and which returns rather in cycles”. “War first requires the West to rediscover its cultural identity, to make it available to everyone in order to be able to dialogue and build bridges.
We believe that allowing ourselves to provoke others with the themes of talent, merit and excellence can stimulate a process of knowledge, granting us a breakthrough, arousing our noblest desires, forging a new path led by the vision of artists, poets, musicians”, he concluded.
