The first exhibition of the festival “I colori di Lucio” has started; it is organized by Nemesi Association, in cooperation with the Town hall of Sorrento, Fondazione Sorrento, Peninsulart and numerous other local organizations in order to commemorate the italian singer Lucio Dalla ten years after his death.
In the concept event every passion of Dalla relates to a colour: art, in particular, has been identified with yellow; that’s why Villa Fiorentino will be lighted with this colour on the outside façade, while the rooms inside will exhibit a series of works inspired by the singer.
on exhibition the artists: Daniela Alfarano, Luca Cavalca, Mattia Consonni, Claudio Cuomo, Bruno de Gennaro, Silvia Fiorenza, Alessandro Flaminio, Omar Galliani, Jorit, Luigi Masecchia, Ugo Nespolo, Luigi Puglisi, Paolo Sandulli e Domenico Sepe.
The name “A modo mio” is not chosen by chance: the artists want to explain their bond to Lucio Dalla and, through their works, they testify the feeling and the emotion left them by the Bolognese artist.
Mattia Consonni, for example, is inspired by the lyrics of songs of all genre and time, as well as Silvia Fiorenza, a brilliant Roman designer.
The great passion, almost admiration, that connected Lucio Dalla to young people passed down by emerging artists, such as the local artist Bruno De Gennaro.
Moreover, a representation of artists coming from Emilia Romagna will exhibit with the works of Omar Galliani and Daniela Alfarano; it highlights the profound bond and affinity between Emilians and people of Campania.
Lorenzo Puglisi distinguishes himself by using black backrounds , releasing streams of light able to define volumes, faces and body parts. The Milanese Luigi Cavalca, a creative talent of design and fashion, has exhibited in public and worship places throughout the national country.
The Neapolitan Luigi Masecchia explains art with a modern language, transforming metal caps into artworks, creating unique masterpieces in which the crown cap is both an elementary cell and a creative illumination.
Claudio Cuomo has made a brilliant work in papier-maché, representing the singer in an unusual way, while Domenico Sepe, known for having created the statue of Maradona given to the homonymous stadium, is a sculptor who works all type of material although his peculiarity is bronze.
Paolo Sandulli from the Amalfi Coast devoted himself to the production of sculpture and terracotta. Some of his works are in important hotels of the coast and in numerous private collections in Italy and abroad.
Alessandro Flaminio, a Neapolitan sculptor whose representative icon is San Gennaro, has participated in numerous group and personal exhibitions of national and international festivals. His works can be found on different sets of Italian films and series.

Agnello, on occasion of the Festival “ Terra, acqua e fuoco”. His work is also one of the prizes of the charity lottery “Un’impresa eccezionale” combined with “I colori di Lucio”.
