The Regional Museum "Agostino Pepoli" throughout the Easter period and until April 10 you can visit the exhibition "Two Sides Only a Mare."
It is an exhibition of Roberta Conigliaro, sculptor, Sicilian origin, but lives and works in Rome for some years, which has a staff, whose theme is the culture of two peoples, on the one hand the European and African from ´another, who are divided, geographically speaking, from one sea, the Mediterranean.
The two cultures, that the sculptor wanted to represent, are very different, but in a sense they are in contact with each other, leaving behind a heritage of great value.
Today the two coasts are still in touch: that North African, from which many immigrants depart on makeshift boats to escape war and poverty and that of Sicily, land of call and hope for the beginning of a new life.
This sea that divides the two sides can be considered simultaneously as the cradle of two great civilizations, as well as the tomb of many shipwrecked, which unfortunately did not manage to arrive safely in Europe.
All of these images and impressions Roberta Conigliaro wanted them to carve stone and terracotta, which wanted to pull over in writing some thoughts that came to my mind during the execution of the works.
This exhibition has a special feature: You can, in fact, also be visited by people who are blind due to the Italian Blind Union cooperation and the contribution of Trapani Rotary, which has provided an accessible location with the help of Braille captions with ability to "see" the sculptures by touch.
