Anish Kapoor, Carsten Höller, Giuseppe Penone and, for the local communities’ project, Claudia Losi, Anni Rapinoja, Nils-Udo and Mario Brunello are artists who express, each with their own perception, a new way of looking at the territory, out of the traditional modes of representation and portrayal.

Art, artworks and artists are interpreted from a different conceptual perspective, starting from the direct comparison with the environment, which goes beyond the physical and natural dimension of a territory and become something to be reinterpreted and given new meanings using the terms of the language of art.


Local Communities' Project

In order to experiment new forms of social change, the artists Claudia Losi, Anni Rapinoja and Nils-Udo have been invited to work with the local communities, to identify some possible forms of collaboration with the craftsmen of the Pollino area. They have strengthened their ties with the region, through learning activities and workshops, asking the inhabitants to work with each other in some projects.

The Local Communities’ Project ended with a concert by Mario Brunello, titled “Pensavo fosse Bach” (I thought it was Bach) and a video participation by Vinicio Capossela. The concert was held in the church of San Francesco, in Senise.
