are glad to present the MUSA
From the mind of Natalino Gisonna is born a new cultural initiative to introduce
you to the modern world of art from the comfort of your hotel; corso 281 art gallery.
We are pleased to present musa, a project founded by 'mia le journal' where angelo
cricchi explores the connections between the world's of cinema, art and fashion
presents Musa, transversal project of Angelo Cricchi which melts cinema, art and
fashion, created for “Mia Le Journal”. The project aims to the actualization of
the artist’s portrait, in vogue in 900’s painting and photography, through the
involvement of various personalities from different creative fields. Musa, focuses
on the meeting of nineteen contemporary artists who opened the doors of their
studies, granted as location, to as many representatives from the world of entertainment.
Gorgeous women relate to the artists through the spaces and with their moving,
caught in the images taken by Cricchi, they speak and let the artists’ studies
talk, with the artworks that inhabit them.
Each of the women portrayed, uses its own language, deriving from their being
actresses, gymnasts or musicians and establishes a perfect dialectic with the
visual artist called into question. It’s about harmonic combinations that seem
to have been destined to happen, each of the women portrayed looks, in fact, like
a “muse” to the artist which relates. Fashion amplifies the meaning of this dialogue,
in the clothes worn by such exceptional models, carefully selected from different
stylists and created by some of the most famous contemporary designers.
