FROM THE CONCRETE TO THE EPHEMERAL
Most local people here in Dolcedo still prefer figurative and highly aesthetic art, maybe because that's what they know best and therefore recognize art only in a materialistic and figurative manifestation.
A Sculpture Park dedicated to agriculture that likewise nature will regenerate itself in time and space is what Monica has in mind. The goal is to offer a welcoming and accessible place of exchange between artists and local community.
The creation of an 'AGRICULTURAL ART PARK' on Monica's grounds seems to be the most effective solution as a first introduction into contemporary visual art.
We hope that an accessible, nearby physical presence of artworks could gradually contribute to fully grasp and appreciate the vital functions of art as a way towards betterment of people and society.
The Agricultural Art Park should be a tangible and physical proof of cultural advancement that can facilitate awareness and therefore positive change.
A vital part of this programme is to actively involve the local schools as well as other educational institutions from the main town of Imperia. We are convinced that it is important to expose the new generations and provide them with the opportunity to be part of a greater circuit and of a thought- provoking discourse that could spark at their door mats and echo out in the world.

From agriculture, to art, to collaboration: CASA DIDUN: LA FATTORIA DIDATTICA
WILL WE BE UP TO SUCH AMBITIOUS PLAN?
ARE GOOD INTENTIONS AND PASSION ENOUGH TO PULL THROUGH AND MAKE IT IN ITALY?
WILL WE SUCCED?
THE CHALLENGE IS OUT THERE, FOR US, FOR DOLCEDO, FOR ALL ARTISTS OUT THERE AND FOR ITALY!
In the end it will be another experience to learn from and to prove that whatever happens, one has to try first in order to find out. So I keep reminding myself that the least I can do is try!
