WALK WITH SILVIA GIAMBRONE
Vice Veritatis does not intend to narrate the city in which the event takes place, neither the life of the people crossing it. Rather it wants to evoke places in which the history of the city meets the history of other territories, in a puzzle that leads to a disorientation and favors the imagination.
“Vice Veritatis is a walk that includes different stages. For each stage I will accompany one person at a time on a journey that will take place in the center of Bergamo city. The one who will pass through this short journey with me, will find his/herself in an active and friendly dialogue with me, he/she will be encouraged to share his/her impressions and his/her own imagination will be challenged. Each stage will touch one of the most important historical sites of the city. But the goal of the walk is not to tell the story of the places encountered during the journey starting from the physical, and real data of the landscape, instead wants to focus on the dialogue that happens between two people, giving space to imagination for discover the most imaginative, and symbolic features of the city. Vice Veritatis crosses Bergamo as you cross the time of the emotions, and the imagination, without holding on reality, but discovering the urban landscape gives a chance to get elsewhere in time and space, like Chinese boxes space and time retain infinite possibilities of rewriting the landscape” says Silvia.
MEETING POINT: The walk with Silvia Giambrone will be an intimate personal route; the artist will walk with one person at a time. The number of participants is therefore limited to 10. Each of them will have a unique and individual meeting place and starting time, different from the other ones which will be indicated at the time of booking. Therefore it is essential to book the walk to know the exact time and place where to meet with the artist.
