Sicily on center stage in Los Angeles (June 3, 2013)

From June 3rd through June 15th two exhibits held at the Italian Cultural Institute highlight the richness of Sicily’s culture. Giuseppe Leone’s photo exhibit “Between Mozia and Lilibeo.  Landscapes and Monuments of Sicily”  reveals the interconnection between the striking natural beauty of the island and the artistic expressions that it craddled, offering images of salt-mines (salt pits), expanses of mediterranean brush spotted by archeological digs, from which have been recovered masterpieces of classical  times like the “Youth of Motia” statue, currently on exhibit at the Getty Villa,  completing an ideal journey of discovery. The second exhibit, “Salt Corals” by Daniela Neri, focuses on a rich tradition of craftsmanship and displays beautiful jewels crafted with a material created by that generous and rugged  nature.
The exhibits are further enriched by the projection of images of the  varied landscape and traditional activities, such as fishing, that characterize the island .
The event  was organized under the auspices of the Consulate General of Italy in cooperation with the Getty Center, The City of Marsala and the Archeological Area of the Stagnone Islands and is part of the “2013 Year of Italian Culture in the United States” program .
