In summary and continuation of the “Arnaldo, Beverly and Umbria” project, the Arnaldo Pomodoro Foundation and the Beverly Pepper Projects Foundation present “Dear Umbria”, a project born from the close collaboration between the two realities with the aim of starting an activity of dissemination through the promotion of a contemporary artistic itinerary, which allows to reconstruct the fundamental biographical stages of the artists in the Umbrian territory and at the same time to start a process of regeneration of collective spaces. In this way, the individual places become stages of a larger open-air museum spread throughout the region.
The project will be accompanied by an intense engagement campaign on the social channels of both foundations.
