Synopsis

A group of artists and researchers were invited to participate to a series of residencies at Pianpicollo Selvatico between the fall of 2013 and the summer of 2016. The renovation of the buildings was complemented with their work. The walls, the stones, the woods, the land and the energy of Pianpicollo were transformed during that time. The process required patience and endurance. The artists engaged in their own process with their skills, poetic and sensibility: in the same place and at the same time. It became a collective experiment about the endless possibilities of creative dialogue with nature.

Featuring the work of Sista Bramini, Andrea Caretto, Maura Crocè, Camilla Dell’Agnola, Vincenzo Guarnieri, Samuel Saldinari, Carla Taglietti and Valentina Turrini
