His poetics is based on the profound dialogue existing between the human being and nature, trying to leave minimal, essential, slight signs, in the perspective of a continuity and a mutual completion between art and nature. The fragility of his works forces a reflection on the concept of perennial transformation to which natural elements are subjected, considering transience as a constitutive element of every living being that inhabits the world in its constant evolution. The project focuses on three significant places for Giuliano Mauri’s art: Lodi, Padernello (Brescia) and Oltre il Colle (Bergamo).
Lodi is the artist’s hometown; Padernello (Brescia), where, near the Castle, there is the San Vigilio Bridge, the last work created by the artist in 2008. The Castle also hosts other works of his. Finally Oltre il Colle (Bergamo) where, at the foot of the Mount, in the Orobie Bergamasche Park, the soul of the Vegetal Cathedral remained, built posthumously in 2010, and which in 2018 – following a storm and a strong wind – it has undergone a transformation that has highlighted both the intertwining of the fragility and power of his work which is not destroyed, but transformed, and our difficulty in accepting deeply and thinking in a different way about transience.
Milleponti Viaggi will therefore promote events and initiatives that want to highlight the tourist value of Lombardy through the poetics and art of Giuliano Mauri.
