The programme for the 2022 event includes ERRANTI, l'arte oltre il limite del visibile (art beyond the limits of the visible) involving works that exist but that elude the gaze, a project for art and the local landscape curated by Francesca Alfano Miglietti (FAM); taking a route that winds its way through the Broletto but also through the festival venues and other places. It is a project whose discovery is the reward for a relentless search for the work and the place.
The works are pictured as guides entrusted with the task of marking out the route and tracing the horizon. It is an exhibition that is as a journey, like a lesson in storytelling, and a way of shifting the point of view. But above all, ERRANT is the theme that runs through the works, because errant is the history of human beings, a history of movement and diversity and exchange, where we are each of us biological and cultural crossbreeding and crossroads.
Francesca Alfano Miglietti chose 20 important personalities from the world of art and design namely: Hanna Burkart, Franko B, Letizia Cariello, Gianni Cinti, Cesare Fullone, Alessandro Guerriero, Stephan Hamel, Francesco Jodice, Roberto Kusterle, Enzo Mari, Antonio Marras, Sandro Mele, Bruno Munari, Andrea Nacciarriti, Daniela Novello, Fabio Novembre, Marco Paganini, Lucia Pescador, Cesare Pietroiusti, and Franco Raggi, whose works suggest different attitudes, and different ways of living and thinking about the fluid relationship between identity, the local landscape and borders.
Photographs, videos, installations, objects, projects that stimulate us to reflect on the idea of departing, of the work itself as a nomadic condition poised between physical and symbolic territories. Works and places: a combination to lead the public to become active, attentive and wandering spectators...
