20 Artists 20 Villages 20 Regions
Una Boccata d’Arte is a contemporary art project, widespread and harmonious in nature, carried out by Fondazione Elpis in collaboration with Galleria Continua. It aims to inject audiences with a spark of optimism about cultural, touristic, and economic recovery by fusing contemporary art with some of the historic and artistic beauty of Italy’s most evocative villages. Twenty towns with populations not exceeding 5,000 will be selected each year, based on a number of factors, including an active cultural scene, artisanal prowess, a viable market, and familial hospitality. The towns will then become the stage for twenty in-situ contemporary art installations, produced by emerging and established artists invited by Fondazione Elpis and Galleria Continua. Twenty artists, for twenty villages, spread around all twenty regions of Italy.
With Una Boccata d’Arte, Fondazione Elpis hopes to make a significant contribution in support of contemporary art and valorization of Italy’s historical and landscape heritage. As we take steps toward resuming our country’s cultural activities, we hold firm to the belief that creative work and artistic activity will be part of the rebirth and reaction to uncertainty. Una Boccata d’Arte is a victory against uncertainty and brings art and beauty back into our lives.
