I was happy enough to come across a very interesting photo exhibition.
Tiziana and Gianni Baldizzone have been living closely with nomads of the world for the last 25 years or so.
Wandering in the streets of the Turin centre I passed also through San Carlo square. What a surprise!
More than 50 wonderful pictures with legends in 3 languages traveled me out of the cold evening (-5o C) and reminded me the Ghandi believed that we are all free to live without interferences…
For the francophones I also copied herewith a statement of the artists:
«Le projet Esprit Nomade est le résultat d’un chemin personnel: un voyage à la découverte d’hommes, les nomades, gardiens de comportements et de valeurs qui constituent le fondement de l’être humain et dont nous pouvons nous inspirer pour trouver des pistes de réflexion sur notre rapport à l’Autre et à la nature.»
How valid it is for all of us – especially now with all the socio-economic crisis surrounding us. If you cannot buy the book just google the name of both artists and you will enjoy some extraordinary pieces. If it happens to visit Turin the exhibition will last up untill Jan 10, 2011. Do not miss it!
Another interesting part of your Turing promenade (again at the city centre) would be the visit of a painting exhibition with works of Ezio Gribaudo called «I Velieri» (sailing boats). This is hosted at Fogola Galleria Dantesca, which is a superb bookstore with many old books, refurbished establishments, a rinocaur at the entrance of it, many other paintings, and of course excellent people to look after you.
I attach for all my readers a photo of «Veliero VI» with my wishes for 2011
