A journey to discover 20 of the most beautiful and evocative villages in Italy. 20 contemporary art projects including paintings, sculptures, concerts, drawings, installations, musical performances, videos and photographs are installed throughout centuries-old architecture: landscapes, monuments, belvedere, alleys and squares, from Aosta Valley to Sardinia.
Again this year, the artists invited to participate in the second edition of Una Boccata d’Arte, have given back to the small and the general audience the history, traditions and curiosities preserved and handed down in the small villages from a contemporary perspective.

the project

“Una Boccata d’Arte is a project with a participatory purpose. It took shape because of an urgent need I felt: a need to do something, to spark confidence, and to move toward a renewal of our country’s cultural life and tourist sphere. This innovative idea brought about an exhibition spread throughout Italy – outdoors, prioritizing safety – and involving extraordinary villages.”

Marina Nissim, President of Fondazione Elpis
