Gaulitana: A Festival of Music is launching this year’s festival with an art exhibition entitled Constanzo Rovati: Percorso Di Vita – which will be opened by the Minister for Gozo Justyne Caruana and blessed by the Bishop of Gozo Mgr Mario Grech.
The opening is taking place next Sunday, the 25th of March, at the Sentinella, Cittadella, starting at 11.30am. The artist himself will be present for the inauguration.
Festival Artistic Director Colin Attard, will outline the festival’s artistic programme for the 2018 edition.
Costanzo Rovati was born in Milan in 1939. Since childhood, he always showed a great aptitude for drawing, with a particular predisposition to curiosity and originality.
After an academic experience marked by strong opposition by his teachers, who were definitely reluctant to accept artistic experimentation, he decided to do it all alone, in order to discover new forms, new expressions and new artistic horizons.
The peculiarity of Costanzo Rovatilies precisely in the fact that he does not repeat himself: each artwork is the result of an emotion filtered through a huge photographic memory that, combined with his easy manual skill, would be translated into creativity.
The works of Costanzo Rovati are on display in important public and private collections in Italy, the US, France, Germany, Switzerland, England, Netherlands, Martinique and St. Vincent & the Grenadines.
Costanzo Rovati: Percorso di Vita is being held in collaboration with Verso l’Arte and Istituto Nazionale Arte Contemporanea.
The institute will also presenting a book about the exhibition for international distribution.
The main artifact, Insegnamenti (300x200cm), will serve as backdrop for festival concerts held at the Gozo Ministry Hall in St. Francis Hall.
The exhibition will be open to the public Monday to Sunday from 9:00am to 5.00pm until the 29th of April.
