The exhibition will be open to the public from 8 July to 8 August 2013.
“Etna Unesco World Heritage” is the title of media: in the exhibition are 40 posters of shots taken by Parrinello during his twenty years of experience as a video room will host the screening of a series of short and medium-length films that feature the Etna , its craters, its forests.
An installation of the designer and “experimenter fashion” Marella Ferrera, drawing on its Historical Archive, will pay tribute to the “Mountain” with a dress-sculpture fabric with slivers of lava stone ceramizzata which emphasizes the ancestral link between the volcano and its people. It will be a journey in pictures between the lunar landscapes, the green of centuries old woods, the snow at high altitudes and the evolution of the pyrotechnic Sicilian volcano.
A path that draws the viewer to the primordial nature of the planet and its four elements: fire and liquid rock, earth, ice, and wind. Next, witness the extraordinary and spectacular – even in its violence – the nature of the volcano, the men who live with this bully and striking reality: volcanologists, geologists, guides, mountain rescue, civil defense volunteers.
