4th International Free Forum at Bolognano, Italy

We drove 2 days to arrive at Bolognano from Paris, to attend the 4th International Free Forum at Bolognano, Italy; headed by Lucrezia de Durini.
On the way we stopped at Lucerne, and saw the cleanly clipped Switzerland, green, with little wooden chalets all along dotted on the hill side.

Then we arrived at Pescara, then, Bolognano! Looks exactly as the web site has shown.

The Underground museum is very beautiful, soft diffused lighting from two ends and a sloping staircase gently brings you up and out onto the terrace, and down below to a cool place where concerts and video events took place.

There were approximately 140 guests. Happening performance, Piano, video with ceremonial opening and closing fanfare from the town.

At the end, we had a chance to see the private museum of Joseph Beuys, a very interesting place where we could see up close the various funnitures, photographs, objects, books; all very well displayed.

We also visited a house dedicated to the Zari Family, A house of art, where the house is filled with art objects of all media, and many many designer objects. There was a very cute little fig tree in the garden.

At the very end, we visited the Museum dedicated to Buby Durini where we saw his motocycle, and many many photos lining up the walls. I also like this part, because in the two rooms, the first had lots of people pictures and the second had lots of books and grape vines crawling across the little windows of the stone cottage. The set up and scale is intimate, and it has to do w people, time and places.

The schedule over three days were stuffed to the rim. We had also fancy dinners at a restaurant with its house winery facing fields of grapes w v arty wine reserves w Beuys portrait displays in the cellar; and another fancy dinner at the Hotel Regis, with a final concluding firework.

Pictures coming soon!

It was very hot and dry, we were glad to retreat to the underground museum to listen to some live performances and arty videos.

All in all quite an impressive program its formal and mixed with personal touches - Lucrezia even did some folk dancing for us at Art of Cooking session - a la country side tradition celebrating food and the good earth - this is how I saw it.

Then we visited all the art installations made for this occasion, they each has a metal plaque with name and title of artist works.

There were some photos of high fashion shoots - v stylised pictures of Lucrezia as model amongst historic photos of Joseph Beuys inside the historical private museum. I think this is intersting the mix of personal history with "ART" history.

I like this mix, we should all surround ourselves with objects and works of our own liking. Because this would help remind us of our aspirations, of where we want to be.

The HuaHui MobileMusic sculpture/house has been invited to be exhibited at the Museum of Joseph Beuys Plantation. Next!
