The Story to live together
Rosemarie is a famous cultural anthropologist and has organized an international convention of art historians on the theme “Masks of the Palaces of Lecce of the 1600s and 1800s, good and evil, outside and inside us.” We will have to examine the masks located at the entrance of the noblest palaces of Lecce and the deeper dimension that the metaphor of the mask plays on each of us will be revealed.
Map in hand, the workshop starts tomorrow morning and it is open to all those who will have the courage to understand the deepest meaning of this ancient tradition.
