Savona, a widespread exhibition tells the stories of ceramics

In Savona from December 18, 2018 to March 3, 2019, the exhibition Stories in Ceramics tells dozens of stories related to ceramics.

Entitled Stories in Ceramics, the widespread exhibition that, from December 18, 2018 to March 3, 2019, involves four museums in the province of Savona: the Museum of Ceramics in Savona, the MuDA - Museo Diffuso in Albissola Marina, the Manlio Trucco Civic Museum in Albisola Superiore, and the Villa Groppallo Civic Museum in Vado Ligure (in the latter museum, the exhibition will end on January 11). The exhibition takes the form of a participatory cultural promotion project aimed at all those who have something to tell, starting with a ceramic object: in fact, the initiative originates from the storytelling of four storytellers who recount their memories and experiences, and expands to include everyone’s individual experiences related to ceramics, starting not with the great artists who have always made ceramics their privileged form of expression, but leaving room for the storytelling of the community and its members. These are personal stories that come alive thanks to a significant object of their everyday life.

All these stories (there are more than thirty on display in Savona’s museums) will be made known in a single, large exhibition, through works that tell them. What’s more, alongside the exhibition in the four museums, the public will find a virtual museum that will tell other stories and at the same time welcome new stories that the community decides to share as part of the project: the virtual museum can be visited on the website of the Senior Museum Project, which is organizing the exhibition.

In addition, two in-depth formats are also planned to complement the initiative. The goal is to enhance the ceramic heritage of the province of Savona, which is not limited to what is on display in museums, but which fills the streets of small towns and is transmitted through the stories of those who experienced it firsthand. With this in mind, Memories was born, a series of events dedicated to the telling of experiences. The protagonists are four exceptional storytellers, divided into two different meetings: on January 13, the Museum of Ceramics in Savona will host the meeting Ceramics through the ages and latitudes, during which masters Sandro Lorenzini and Marcello Mannuzza will guide viewers to discover the secrets of ceramics. On March 3, on the other hand, at Casa Museo Jorn and Studio Mario Rossello in Albissola Marina, space will be given to the meeting La Collina dei Bruciati with Silvana Saettone and Daniela Rossello, who will tell the audience about their relationship with two greats of Italian and European art: Asger Jorn and Mario Rossello.

The second moment, on the other hand, will involve the discovery of places with a new edition of Intorno, an itinerary for the enhancement of the territory already proposed in 2017 by Museo Senior. Two appointments on the calendar: on January 27, in Albisola Capo, will be staged Shops, ice cream and... goldfish, a journey in search of artisan traditions, through the places and memories of Albisola ceramics. On Feb. 17, in Vado Ligure appointment with Landing at Pirate Bay, a journey to discover the artists of the Porto Vado area.
