5th ARTipasto 2021
13 to 16 MAY 2021
With ARTipasto, the Bergell traditionally kicks off the spring season. Last year it was "only" online, and this year it is postpone by six weeks.
Thanks to the great flexibility of all partners, the programme has remained almost identical and has been moved from Easter to the Ascension weekend - from Thursday 13 to Sunday 16 May 2021. Circumstances permitting, art lovers will be able to meet in person to get a taste of the summer cultural offerings in Bergell.
The association Florio Soglio opens the 5th edition of ARTipasto with a film on the story of Jane Grey - Queen of England for nine days and pupil of Michel Agnolo Florio. Friday morning Dora Lardelli, art historian, will take us on a walk from the Atelier Segantini to the Belvedere tower, telling us curiosities and anecdotes about Giovanni Segantini and explaining the significance of the paintings that the artist created around Maloja.
Friday evening, in the open air, on the splendid cornice of the Rimessa Castelmur, a film about the artist Elvezia Michel - an early 20th century painter originally from Borgonovo will be shown.
Saturday, the spotlight will shift to Castasegna and on Giacometti. Luciano Fasciati presents the art project that will animate the "sala viaggiatori" during the summer and the "Galleria il Salice" invites to meet the exhibiting artist Wanda Guanella. In the afternoon, Marco Giacometti, president of the Centro Giacometti, is going to take us from Borgonovo to Stampa where we can visit the birthplaces of the Giacometti family’s artists. The walk will end in Stampa with a visit to "Eyes that don't sleep", a sculpture by Portuguese artist Rui Chafes.
Biennale Bregaglia will close the 2021 edition of ARTipasto with the official handover of Roman Signer's work "Installation am Turm" to the Municipality of Bregaglia.
