Ephemeral Arts Connection Workshop 2010 – Italy

From the 9th to the 20th of September 2010 artists everywhere and  met in Sicily for the international workshop Ephemeral Arts Connection. Exponents of different disciplines worked together to realize an installation and a performance inside the Monumento ai Mille in Marsala

The Participants came even from Damasco and Oslo to reopen the incomplete Monument in Marsala -,a very good piece of news is that, in all likelihood, the incomplete huge Monument, which was created to celebrate the Unification of Italy, will be livened up by some exhibitions and some events till the works to complete it  won’t start…
Trying to put all that into action, the Stardust* Architects and  Sole e Luna’s owner (a bar in front of the Monument), hasten to advertise the project and keep the Monument clean and accessible for visitors.
Anyway, even if at this incomplete stage, its architecture is still fascinating
