There will be also an artwork created by Roberto Alborghetti for his "Lacer/actions" art project among the pieces that will be in permanent exhibition at the “St. Francis Contemporary Art Museum” which is being born in Mercatello sul Metauro, a picturesque and fascinating medieval town in the centre of Italy (Marche region, in Pesaro Urbino territory).
This beautiful and praiseworthy initiative is carried out with enthusiasm by the local City Council and by Mayor Giovanni Pistola, by Pro Loco (tourism promotion association), by artist sculptor Pasquale Martini (curator of the Museum) and with the collaboration of the whole community, from families to schools, involved also in a particular campaign called "Adoption of an artwork."
This extraordinary modern art collection (more than 150 pieces) will be kept in the ancient and medieval “St.Francis” convent now transformated in a beautiful museum centre and a reference point for art and culture. The opening of “St. Francis Contemporary Art Museum”is scheduled for September 2012.
Roberto Alborghetti, as all the other artists hosted in this collection devoted to modern art, was proud to donate his work accepting the invitation he received from the curator and artist Pasquale Martini and from artist Maestro Carlo Iacomucci (who is one of the exhibitors too). Martini and Iacomucci viewed some of Roberto Alborghetti Lacer/Actions - Images of Torn (publi)City - focusing their attention on an image that, according to them, depicts and interprets the sense of Alborghetti's research about the “metropolitan signs of our times”. The work which will be hosted and shown at the Museum is titled "There is some chaos, but with focal point" (canvas, 63 x 43). The image was “captured” in Milan, on a cloudy day in December 2010 (this post shows it as a special preview). Roberto Alborghetti is very glad to be part of this art collection gathering national and international artists who are developing new forms and expressions about contemporary art.
