The show

The CRAC-Puglia of the Rocco Spani ONLUS Foundation, as part of its cultural programming, entitled "Sul Veliero della Fantasia / Estate Ragazzi 2021, 34th Edition", has conceived and organized in collaboration with other Bodies, the project: "Opera nell 'Opera. Tribute to Giovanni Paisiello. Environmental planning for a monument to Music ". The artistic project is divided into two significant exhibition moments that stigmatize the epochal passage between past and present, between historical memory and contemporary creativity, further underlining the identity values that Paisiello's extraordinary music represents for the city of Taranto. The first moment is dedicated to the well-known sculptor Nino Franchina and the failure to build the monument to Paisiello (1956-1957). On display the original sketch of the artist - winner at the time of the national public competition "Paisiello Prize" - accompanied by an adequate number of design drawings and important critical testimonies of the time. The second exhibition moment is to relaunch, through proposals of ideas whose aims are only planning, a practice of effective "urban environmental operation", but which aim to be shared by the community and by the Bodies, for a possible realization.
