Until 18 August, in fact, at the Tenuta Diciassetteconi, it will be possible to visit a collective show of ceramic artworks realized by protagonists of Italian and international art, with side events including performances and workshops. The trullibecome, in all respects, the scenario around which the exhibition is constructed: each visitor will each be provided with a map, to help them find their way through the indoor and outdoor exhibition spaces and to discover the works, set up following a close connection between their forms and those of the surrounding nature and architecture. "The exhibition aims to be a vessel full of stories, dialogues, relationships, wonders, both for the local public as well as an ever-growing number of foreigners," says Laura Borghi, founder of Officine Saffi.
