TEHRAN –(Iranart)- Castiglia, an ancient monument in the Italian town of Saluzzo, hosted a group of Iranian artists’ exhibition titled “Persian Diary” from May 20 to June 10.
The exhibition was part of a program for the new edition of START – Storia Arte a Saluzzo (History and Art in Saluzzo), a month-long initiative set up for one of the ten most beautiful towns in Italy, the organizers announced.
Twenty-one works by Firuzeh Akhlaqi, Mohammad-Hadi Fadavi, Shahram Karimi, Alireza Karimpur, Alireza Saadatmand, Sahar Salehi and Amir Bakhtiar Sanjabi were showcased at the exhibit that was curated by Persian art expert Vahid Malek.
Castiglia organized the exhibition in collaboration with the Tehran Art Center, the Turin-based Istituto Garuzzo per le Arti Visive (IGAV - Garuzzo Institute for Visual Arts).
“This is an important event for the IGAV, which has always believed in Saluzzo, site of our permanent collection and exhibition,” IGAV President Rosalba Garuzzo said during the opening ceremony of the showcase.
“It is all very much in the same spirit that has always infused our projects, which have cultural diplomacy as their basic objective,” she added.
