On 27 and 28 November “Palazzo SUMS” in San Marino City hosted the exhibition of the works that participated in the “Stop-Reset-Start” competition
A stimulus enthusiastically collected by more than thirty artists who have reworked the title with different expressive languages: painting, installations, video, writing, photography. A multifaceted and complex theme launched with a very specific desire: that of being an artistic, cultural and human input towards an individual and collective rebirth and restart. A reflection in particular if shared always generates a moment of strong personal growth, it is with this desire that the competition was carried out. Forget your past, forgive yourself and start over – Forget your past, forget yourself and start over. Restore: a restoration that leads back to the starting conditions, resetting the operating conditions, a dream that can be declined both in personal history and in the journey of humanity. The initiative has enjoyed in all its phases the patronage of the Secretariat for Education and Culture. The artistic review hosted on Sunday afternoon the San Marino author Walter Serra, who intervened to present his latest novel “Maura Porcu. Without peace ”, the third part of an emotional thriller set in the Republic of San Marino. The Secretary of Education and Culture Andrea Belluzzi introduces the event. In this novel we find Maura perhaps in the saddest moment of her life. After losing loves and lovers along the way, she again has to deal with pain: her husband Paolo was killed during an attempted robbery. But Maura has no time to recover, she squeezes her belly with her second child inside that Paolo will not see and is already projected towards a new manhunt: a psychopath who starts killing at random. He begins to study the case by interacting with the authorities only from home (in practice, he is no longer a policeman on duty). The psychopath calls her on the phone, gives her an appointment and she goes there. Something is wrong, it doesn’t seem the same person, again there are two, again the danger threatens her from the front and from behind. Most importantly, Maura begins to realize that she is not fighting one or two people like she was before. They are organized, powerful, untraceable. “I believe that the overall thoughtful works compose the photograph of today and of the humanity that surrounds us. Emotions, moods, interviews in the most varied forms transpire – explains Carlo Biagioli, promoter of the art competition – Reflections in life are continuous and necessary. Art offers us different points of view than ours and challenges us, opening us to the world “.
