falía*. It’s a spark that can start a fire. It’s the spark coming from the territory, from its history, from its culture. It’s the spark of the past, that spreads across the present and turns on the great fire of the future. It’s the contemporary art’s spark, that lights memories from the past in order to re-discover themselves.
The residence takes place in the Lozio Valley, under the beautiful mountains of the middle Camonica Valley. Artists will live and work in the heart of the small and characteristic village of Lozio, where traditions and the link to territory and nature are still very strong.
