A vernissage, an evening dedicated to art, will be followed by dinner with celebrated artists, Andrea Pacanowski
and Giacinto Bosco
. The evening is a cooperation between Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria and Franco Senesi, owner of the Liquid Art System
a contemporary art organisation with galleries in Capri, Positano, London and Istanbul. The meal that follows will also be a work of art, with the menu bearing the signature of Executive Chef Antonino Montefusco.
was born in Rome in 1962 into an artistic family. His father was an architect, his aunt was an Ecole de Paris painter, and his grandmother was a sculptor. Pacanowski followed the artistic path, graduating from a school of fine arts to take on an apprenticeship under the tutelage of Alberta Tiburzi, the internationally renowned Italian photographer.
Pacanowski has been a fashion photo-grapher for over 20 years, working on shoots in Italy and abroad, primarily in Canada and the US. His work has been featured in a number of fashion magazines (Marie Claire, Elle, Vogue Italia, L'Uomo Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Kult), photography publications, and advertising campaigns.
He continues to experiment with the medium, recently blending photography and painting to create works of art. In this, the virtual and the real are often indistinguishable, pushing the photographic language beyond its traditional boundaries to create unique, three-dimensional ‘layered-paint’ images, without the need for any post-production manipulation.
was born in Alcamo, Sicily in 1956. At the age of 15, he moved to Milan
to work as an artistic caster. The foundry
he worked at became the focal point for the very best in art. Taking inspiration, he developed his own artistic talent. In 1990,
he became a member of ‘Società per le Belle Arti ed Esposizione Permanente’ (known as ‘La Permanente’) and received his first public commission. Following this, his ‘Aphorisms of the Moon’ took his art into a more poetic dimension, producing dream-like sculptures which celebrate primordial feelings.
Starting with a personal exhibition at
the White Room Gallery in Capri’s Liquid Art System, Bosco went on to hold many international exhibitions (Moscow, New York, Istanbul, Miami), culminating in his partici-pation in the Expo Belle Arti Lombardia, promoted by Regione Lombardia by Vittorio Sgarbi in 2015.
The art critic Paolo Levi describes Bosco’s works as a rare ability to capture historic memory using an innovative and unconventional technique of lost wax casting. This fusion results in sculptures that represent a perfect combination of pathos and ratio.
