• ViteNove

Today we want to introduce you to Vite Nove, a fascinating art exhibition for which we had the opportunity to be one of the sponsoring partners. We are really happy to have had the opportunity to sponsor such an expressive and elegantly nuanced event.  

Vite Nove: artistic vocation and the parallelism of one’s lives

The exhibition Vite Nove recalls, first of all, Dante’s Vita Nova, with a different meaning and nuance than the content connected to the love poetry of this literary masterpiece. 

Every artist who intimately lives his or her Art as a predestined vocation, builds in his or her creative achievement a true other life. A life that runs parallel to his daily existence. A kind of ideal dimension within which it is possible to express a rebirth, an inner renewal. It all contributes to approaching that pure Consciousness which is the ultimate goal of the earthly path. 

And this is precisely where the art exhibition Vite Nove (Nine Lives) fits in, highlighting the paths of two artists who are living a dual, augmented reality.

The first of these is a conventional life, while the second is dictated by deep and secret reasons. Over time these have become inescapable, necessary, suggested perhaps by that hypothetical Alter that inhabits the spiritual and psychic world. 

In the end each of us yearns and desires a new life, an inner space formed of crystal clear air and true light, where we can simply be ourselves. It is Milani’s out-of-time contaminations or Sandra Zeugna’s transnational scenes that support this exhortation within Nature and history, and at the same time outside of them, surrendering to very private dimensions guarded by the infinite reasons of the Heart.
