The art of change @gallerieditalia, a series of meetings curated by Giovanni Caccamo in which words, music and new harmonies come together to build a potential new future and ignite an exchange on change, kicks off in Vicenza on the 1st of June. The journey will continue to the Turin museum on the 6th of June and then to Naples on the 13th of September, concluding in Milan on the 14th of September.
To coincide with the four events, the Wall of Change, a travelling art installation conceived by Giovanni Caccamo, bringing together different cultures, religions and identities united by a love of life and an evolving vision of the future towards sharing and harmony, will be lit at the four Gallerie d'Italia museums. The installation consists of a wall of words projected onto a white ledwall. Each contributor can go to www.museodelcambiamento.it and type in their word of change, which will appear instantly on the screen.
The art of change @gallerieditalia - Meeting dates
On the 1st of June in Vicenza, Giovanni Caccamo will be accompanied by Cristina dell'Acqua. Fresh from the publication of her latest book La Formula di Socrate (Socrates' Formula), published by Mondadori, and her recent collaborations with Corriere della Sera and La7, the writer, interacting with the artist, will create a bridge between past, present and future, through quotations from the Greek and Latin classics. The two protagonists will share valuable reflections with the audience on the most pressing current issues. The discussion will be enhanced by a musical performance by the singer-songwriter and the lighting of the Wall of Change.
Television reporter Rajae Bezzas and art history student Laura Rossi, two of the sixty young protagonists of the Manifesto of Change, will be present at the meeting.
On the 6th of June in Turin, Giovanni Caccamo will be talking to four other young talents, Giorgio Brizio (author and climate activist), Silvia Parrino (manager for healthcare innovation), Davide Sabatino (dancer, poet) and Travis (rapper), and Mattia Villardita (hospital volunteer) on topics of change and the future, embraced by the art of painter Giovanni Robustelli in two new perspectives: the digital and the analogue. The round table, with writer Luca Bianchini in the role of moderator, will be held in the museum's multimedia room, where the young people's #WordsOfChange, redrawn by the artist, will be projected. At the same time, the artist will reproduce them in a veritable live calligraphic performance on a large wooden board. The discussion will be enhanced by an A cappella musical performance by the singer-songwriter and the lighting of the Wall of Change.
On the 14th of September in Milan, Giovanni Caccamo will be talking to the audience present and some talented young people in an alternation of words and music.

The meeting will accompany the lighting of the Wall of Change.
