Bordighera Alta
Festa dei Fiori and Door Painting 

The community of this quaint medieval town in Liguria, Italy implemented a beautification project: paint the utility doors in the 15th century town to liven up the intricate narrow streets. Patrizia was one of eight artists chosen for this embellishment. 

"I chose a dark corner, painting a vibrant, pop-art floral from my "Four Seasons's Collection." The unveiling and artists exhibit was during the annual Festa dei Fiori held June 4-5 2022. 

The upcoming Festa di Santa Maddalena, the high-city's patron saint will be held July 22-24. Patrizia has been asked to exhibit for the event.

Arte Oggi landing page.jpf

Established in 2016, through his widely read ARTEOGGI Blog, Alessio Santiago Policarpo seeks to reintroduce forgotten artists of the twentieth century outside the avant-gardes, present living artists who remain tied to a traditional approach to art and the figurative and those with a counter-current interpretative overture. His blog also showcases museums and exhibitions, his more exploratory writing covering theory and today's visual research, a qualitative research methodology that relies on the use of artistic mediums to produce and represent knowledge.
