Lawn-Sarajevo ART INVASION finally comes to invade the city of Prato, bringing artists active in Tuscany and Bosnia, involved in the project started in April 2014 to intervene in the first two weeks of June with their raids of art.
The project, promoted by the Tuscany Region and the Province of Prato in the context of Toscanaincontemporanea, 2013, was developed through a structured, organized in stages of approach, as an opportunity to stimulate a reflection on what is today the relationship between contemporary art and the territory of reference imagining the city as a place for discussion and exchange.
The first foray into art arrives June 2 with the performance of Virginia Zanetti Vissi d'arte, in which a soprano, unexpectedly, began singing the famous aria of Puccini's Tosca in the city, passing through places where the beauty of everyday life seems to be disappearance.
On June 3, instead sees the start of the workshop Gaetano Cunsolo that with the boys of the Oratory of St. Anne begins to self-build a shelter in the square of the Palazzo Vaj on Via Puglia 28.
On June 5, it becomes a time when the two cities featured in the project and begin to overlap and intertwine with the first of three performances of Valentina Lapolla who with his Sarajevo Walking Tours takes us around Meadow in a virtual guided tour of the most important monuments Sarajevo. The visit is carried out in groups and it is possible to book connecting to www.pratosarajevotours.it or by phone at 3200417220.
On the evening of June 5, the two artists Bosnian residents in Prato, Lana Čmajčanin and Bojan Stojcic, are the protagonists, together with Francesca Banchelli the fourth and final stage of approach to the project. The curator Špela Zidar, in the frame of the Garden Banci Buonamici, will bring artists and other guests, Stephen Brindle of the Pecci Centre, the artist Chiara Bettazzi Via Genova and Irene Sienese, the economist culture, to reflect on the theme of creativity in time of the crisis at a meeting entitled Creativity - the big bet.
