Fabrizio Bellomo | Villaggio Cavatrulli

The exhibition Villaggio Cavatrulli by Fabrizio Bellomo will open to the public on Wednesday, 31 May at 6.30 pm at Planar Gallery in Bari. In conversation with Ugo La Pietra and Marco Petroni, Bellomo proposes a possible utopia, Villaggio Cavatrulli. The project is an investigation into the folds of the Apulian landscape where the artist identifies an archipelago of unused architectures that appears as an opportunity to define a new possible condition of living within a territory marked by the exploitation committed by the extraction of building materials. The result is a set of architectural elements remaining after the production cycle, which are meant to convey a new way of looking at the landscape that daily falls under our gaze. The mapping of the Apulian territory allows a conversation between the district of Lecce and the coast of Bari, thus showing a common original matrix.
