SLIDELUCK ROMA STRIKES AGAIN. THIS TIME MOSES COMES TOO.
After many years in the Italian Capital, Slideluck returns to Rome with a new show, new team, new location.
The wonderful Chiostro di San Pietro in Vincoli is a major basilica built in Rome in 1442, best known for being the home of Michelangelo’s statue of Moses. Capping an epic history, and several hours of noshing on delicious homemade fare (curtesy of the nearly 300 attendees), the scene was set for 21 great artists to project their artwork.
The expectations were high as the press built up the enthusiasm in the weeks before the show. People heard the call near and far, and came in force, not only from the Capital, but also from Milan, Bologna and many little provincial towns.
What to say? The team, headed by Joseph La Mela and Valentina Trisolino, did a great job, dealing with politics and organic delays, in such an elegant way that the final show was just great! The two were sided by Giammaria De Gasperis, Louise Clements and MariaTeresa Salvati, who not only curated the show, but also helped wherever was needed.
Beers in hands, the crowd took their seats fearing that another thunderstorm would fall from the sky. But the clouds withheld their wrath; and the weather was just perfect!
The feedback about the projections has been great so far. In fact, we want to thank all the artists that contributed to make the evening amazing:
Antonio Di Cecco | Barbara Leolini | Boris Eldagsen | Claudia Mozzillo
