LE VIE DELL'IMMAGINARIO in MODICA ALTA (Sicily)
On July 15, the Church of SS Nicolò and Erasmo opened to the public to host the event dedicated to Federico Fellini.
You can immerse yourself in the visual and sound atmospheres of Fellini's films.
"Le vie dell'immaginario" is an annual event dedicated to artists who have created stories and characters that have become symbols, that is, something that goes beyond the conventional meaning and indicates the tension between the visible and the invisible.
This first edition is dedicated to director Federico Fellini and his visionary and fantastic art.
A path that starts from the Church of SS Nicolò and Erasmo, set up with a scenography that reproduces scenes from Fellini's films, and crosses the oldest district of Modica furnished with works and installations by artists from various parts of Italy. Arcades, internal gardens, caves, churches transformed into lounges where you can stop and eat typical local products
Inside the church you will also find on exhibit some photos from my work "Sentidos Revelados".
What a gratification!
I'd like to share with you good news: my book "Propaganda! Cuba On The Walls", with which I closed twenty years of photography on Cuba in 2019 with an exhibition at the José Martí Memorial, was selected among the finalists of the Urban Book Award of the 12th Urban Photo Contest edition.
I am very happy with this goal! Now we look forward to October 30th, the day when the winner will be announced.
You can see my "Cuba on the walls" project in my gallery.
FireBerg '08 will soon be in New York City!
I am thrilled to announce that this year FireBerg '08 Hot | As | Ice was among the winners of the Decade of Change competition and will be exhibited at The Nest Summit for New York's Climate Week in collaboration with The Climate Museum! An extraordinary opportunity to show my work to those who play a crucial role in climate action.
Firebergs is a work born from the strong emotions I felt on the Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina. In the series The Beginning and Hot | As | Ice, I translate through the colors the sensation of heat, also visual, experienced in Argentina: ice, in itself a cold element, burns giving a sensation of heat. Since the melting contains in itself the concept of heat, the use of negative printing has meant that the cracks in the glaciers become volcano cracks and the expanses of water become incandescent earth.
The event will be held from 21 September 2021 at the Javits Center.
I am pleased to announce that WoodBergs Nature have been awarded the Iron A' Design Award in Photography and Photo Manipulation Design Category by the International Design Academy, the grand jury panel of the A' Design Award & Competition which consists of internationally influential press members, established designers, leading academics and prominent entrepreneurs.

The imagined city is a place of possibility, where everything is shaped by language, be it verbal or not. There are no contradictions in such a place, since its very essence is nourished by unexpected events, discrepancies, paradoxes. Here, then, that vibrant, floating, distorted cities appear, quivering with a teeming life. They are a reflection of what has been or can still be: vivid and real places in the imagination, or only lucidly imagined in reality.
Carlo D'Orta (with Vibrazioni) and Patrizia Dottori (with "Americana Breakfast table set") do not limit themselves to representing cities, but have the demiurgic ability to build them, to make them In-Visible Cities: ethereal and evanescent and, at the same time, concretely visualized through the photographic lens.
Imaginative, but no less true. (F. Rovetta)
