Una Boccata d’Arte
24.06 – 24.09.2023

Una Boccata d’Arte, the contemporary art project promoted by Fondazione Elpis in collaboration with Galleria Continua and with the participation of Threes, returns from Saturday June 24th to Sunday September 24th, 2023. Every year 20 villages, one for each region, host the installations of 20 Italian and
international artists, created in dialogue with the history and traditions of the surroundings and its inhabitants. Una Boccata d’Arte is an invitation to travel and discover along a cultural itinerary, between art and territory, that winds throughout Italy.

Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th of June will inaugurate the fourth edition in all the 20 villages.

20 artists for 20 villages

Una Boccata d’Arte started in 2020 in the middle of the pandemic: a unanimous and original project that’s akin to a unique cultural itinerary that each year invites the public to discover 20 new Italian villages, rich with centuries old traditions and natural beauty, far from the well-trodden tourist paths and art circuits.

20 interventions

After this time in which the artist can listen to and explore the place and plan their work, each artist will give back a site-specific installation to the community. These are made accordingly with the local area and the experience the artist has had there in mind, demonstrating how the 20 interventions that cover many different art forms come about. From painting to sculpture, photography, video, sound and performance, the work is the result of gaining an understanding of a place and of the precious dialogue with the local residents.

2022 – 3^ edition

from June 25 to September 18 2022

20 beautiful Italian villages and 20 temporary site-specific installations, mostly in outdoor, conceived by Italian and foreign artists, among the emerging and the established.
