From August 22nd to
August 24th, 2014
Stars, Skies, Trulli and Mother-Ships
Men at first feel without observing,
then they observe with a troubled
and agitated spirit,
finally they reflect with a clear mind.
Giovan Battista Vico, The New Science, translated by T. G. Bergin and M. H.
Fish, Ithaca, Cornell University Press, p.67
Let’s appreciate sane and sensible, beautiful
and seductive things, in order to refresh our senses, far from the anaesthetic
pollution that the information noise forces upon us every day.
Ancient manor farms and historical abodes of the Valle d’Itria will be, in this
occasion, exceptionally open to the public: privileged places where to listen
for three days rare and creative reflections on the world of senses.
Well-known Italian and foreign scholars will give interesting talks on the
theme chosen for this year. There will be itinerant lectures, slow-moving
excursions, tactile exhibitions, bio-diversity, re-design of the traditions,
delicious food and occasions for seeing in a new perspective and enjoying the
sensuality of Puglia.
