The charme of art studios
Thanks to an ever wide range of disciplines, art lovers, onlookers, tourists and lovers of local history will have the opportunity of discovering intimate and private spaces, where artists muse to realize their creations. Work in progress will be seen in the studios of ceramists, sculptors, painters, designers, glassartists, mandalists, spiritual artists, weavers and photographers. A common point of all these creative beings, so different from each other by education and orientation, consists in their long expressive and technical research, which is unmistakeably reflected in theirs works and performances.
While visitors will have the chance “to touch” and “feel” the creations of these seventeen artists and artisans, to acquaint with there techniques, philosophies, thoughts and approach to the material, the visits will take place in full respect of COVID rules and social distancing.
