The Visitapoveri Confraternity


You have to settle with time. A time that seems like Janus, ancient Roman deity. He escapes, with an eye toward the past to recognize and guess but remaining still, motionless and impassive, and enjoys in its essential features the inlays of the memory, looking to the future. There is a time that passes and one that stays still. It shares with itself, looking inside, but at the same time safeguarding what produces looking outside, to reach it. It fights against its erosion, punctuated by the seasons passages that always alternate equal and that flow leaving the signs along the four hundred years of life of the “Visitapoveri Confraternity”.

On May 28, at 4:30 pm, the program extends the possibility of conversing with landscape painters such as Ermanno Casasco and Patrizia Pozzi or assisting the work of the two illustrators, Simo Capecchi and Alessandro Rak, who will simultaneously perform a graphic reportage describing the most curious plants, telling about cultivation, uses and anecdotes, drawing in front of the public. Ipomea wants to be an affirmation of the culture and sense of the place through the world of plants, essences and natural products. The exhibition will be associated with the Butterfly Museum “Lepidoptera”, which can be visited from May 18 to July 31, and for the entire month of September. A longer period in order to turn it into a semi-permanent attraction on Ischia Island.


The culture yeast and the blessed bread

«The earth is full of crap, and nature rebelled. We need to return to the old systems of work, in the sense that in the land we should have a new mentality, rather with respect than once». When we meet in the cellar, on time my friends - sucking greasy fingers after having bitten the last 'mbrugliatiello of rabbit - they want to convince me that “we must not give up”.


Ariosto in academy the Orlando by Cocciardo

“Of loves and ladies, knights and arms, I sing”

The rhetorical chiasmus, as a trio marked by the cross of four brushstrokes, opens and synthesizes the Orlando Furioso by Ariosto. Made up with a grid of eighth of hendecasyllabic metre, the chivalrous poem is divided into a whirlwind of people, events, feelings that crowd, jostle, and alternate. Think of the paintings or the Renaissance tapestries depicting the epic battles of Pavia, Roncesvalles, and San Roman. Artists such as Paolo Uccello, Ruprecht Heller, where they wrap like waves, theories of shapes and colors (bodies twisting convulsively, armor, muscles warriors and horses) divided by long rows of lances that mount a scaffold made of geometric correspondences between straight, drive shafts, beams with diameters of voltages. It is a biblical crush of men and beasts that is impossible to enumerate and distinguish immediately in detail but which it works as a perfect mechanism.
