Massa Lubrense (NA) On July 16 at 18:00 the artist’s personal exhibition opens Pasquale Cipolletta,Odor of Silence – Synesthesia of elements “, inside the Benedictine Monastery in Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi, which rises in the hilly area called the “Desert”. The exhibition also represents the second stage of a journey that began in 2021, in Piano di Sorrento in the Basilica of San Michele Arcangelo, with the exhibition “Art in the Basilica – Synaesthesia of elements”. This exhibition from Sant’Agata, which, as the painter underlines during the presentation, “it is not only an ambitious exhibition project, but hides a higher goal, that of raising awareness of art and educating to beauty, basing itself on the elements of nature and celebrating them“. This pedagogical and educational purpose prompted the author to involve boys and girls of different age groups in the Massa Lubrense district in the creation of some works and in the setting up of the vernissage and the exhibition itself. Pasquale Cipolletta, born in Turin but always from Massa, who elected Schiazzano as his “sweet nest” to steal an expression from Dante’s don Alfredo Ammendola, who recognized and wrote the extraordinary beauty of these places before others, has with commitment and passion made available to his young students, whom he pleasantly nicknamed “the boys of the Desert”, his thirty years of experience as a visual arts artist. The former pupil of the masters Enzo Prestileo and Renato Balsamo, held a series of meetings in the weeks preceding the vernissage, illustrating painting techniques and motivating the children to compete with them, stimulating their creativity and stimulating their curiosity satisfied not only by constant dialogue but also from reflections and discussions, enriching their cultural baggage and finally inviting them to discover the history of this splendid monastery whose foundation dates back to 1679. The painter has combined the most exquisitely artistic and cultural themes with those related to the awakening of civic consciousness with particular attention to environment and its criticalities, the 5 senses have been a means to discover nature and through the comparison with what surrounds us reflect on ourselves, on our presence in it, I am pleased to mention what Pope Francis calls integral ecology, therefore rediscover the “vocation to be custodians of God’s work”As the Pontiff himself recalls in“ Laudato si ‘, n. 217 “. The exhibition will remain open to the public every day until August 3, from 10 to 13 and from 15 to 19; on 24 July there will also be a music and dance show that will involve young musicians and some dancers from the “Mariella Romano – Dancestudio dance school” who will propose a series of choreographies inspired by the works of Pasquale Cipolletta and a poem on the Five Elements. signature of his son Samuel. As claimed by the late art critic, Prof. Angelo Calabrese, who recognized talent and excellent technique in Cipolletta, in the architecture of Being there and also in belonging to it, Pasquale for years with his art has invited us to discover being on this land belonging to someone, celebrating the inclusive society by fighting that of waste.
