Illustri Festival 2019 will be held in Vicenza from May 18th to June 23rd, with the collaboration of Burgo Group which will present its project Cartaceo#01, Paper: a never-ending material.
After the success of BookCity Milano 2018, the illustrations of Emiliano Ponzi and the storytelling of Gabriella Greison arrive in Vicenza to tell us a story about the paper as an never-ending material, a material with endless possibilities, born form a machine that seems to never end, which throughout human history has taken our dreams and stories and propelled them into the future in a never-ending exchange, transforming over and again into new and different products.
The exhibition inside the Basilica Palladiana (Sala degli Zavatteri), curated by Francesco Poroli, reproduces the unfolding of a leporello, the paper object created by the collaboration between Ponzi and Greison, while the animations curated by Emiliano Ponzi run on a monitor togegher with the reading of the story Paper: a never-ending material.
The opening of all the exhibitions is scheduled for Saturday, May 18th from 10.00 am. The complete program and contents of the exhibitions are available at the following link:
