The Department of Tourism Development and Promotion of the Campania Region and the Donnaregina Foundation for contemporary arts / Madre museum present the exhibition project of the Contemporary Art Park in the Vallo di Diano. Works, ideas, projects, people from the Madre collection, created on the occasion of the 30th Summer Universiade Napoli 2019 and Matera European Capital of Culture 2019.
Meeting place between different cultures and ecosystems, often called "cultural landscape", the internal Cilento and Vallo di Diano were the scene of the so-called Barons' Conspiracy (1485 and 86). A founding episode of the national and supranational identity of modern Europe from which this exhibition, together with the La Congiura dei Baroni project, traces a historical route that connects, in a new cultural and tourist itinerary, the cities and communities of Naples , Vallo di Diano and Matera / Miglionico.
In particular, the exhibition Works, ideas, projects, people from the Madre collection, curated by Andrea Viliani and Silvia Salvati, aims to promote new contemporary art itineraries in the Campania region, articulating itself in some historical and naturalistic sites of the Vallo di Diano : the Castello dei Principi Sanseverino (now Macchiaroli), the Cloister of the Convent of the Santissima Pietà in Teggiano and the Caves of Pertosa-Auletta, thus joining the previous projects presented at the Certosa di San Lorenzo in Padula, from which the Art Park contemporary originates: the exhibition The works and the days (2002-2004), curated by Achille Bonito Oliva, and the performance VB82 of the artist Vanessa Beecroft, realized in 2017 as part of the initiative The Walk of the Charterhouses.
