Verona Tessile is a festival set up to give impetus and visibility to textile art in Italy. Organized by the Ad Maiora Association, in collaboration with the Verona Municipality, it takes place in museums, churches, in the city center, in beautiful and evocative locations.
I am honored to be part of the 5th edition, taking place from April 30th to May 3rd 2023, in one of the many historical settings in the city where the festival is finding place. My works will be part of a group exhibit, in the Fresco Museum Giovanni Battista Cavalcaselle, and the names of the other invited artists are a sufficient reason to look for this venue!
In this occasion, the quilts I made in parallel with Giovanna Nicolai (in a period when we agreed to try an identical palette of fabric) will be hanging together with the works made by her at that time. Our modern quilts will be in a dialogue with the fresco painting from year 1580 representing emperor Carlo V and pope Clemente VII as knights, permanent exhibit in the same room.
More than ten locations, internationally recognized artists, quilting challenges and social themes will be part of this edition: all good reasons to visit the event!
