Cala d' ARTconte
Cala d'Arconte has always been chosen because of its intimate and at the same time welcoming and familiar setting, and also as a place of creation and meditation.
Artists have spent months working under the cool shade of trees or hidden and wilderness areas, and some works are still exhibited in public areas of the resort.
During the summer of 2011 we decided to create a distinct artistic setting by activating a drawing, painting and modeling studio and providing, among our services, availability to introduce and support our guests to experiement in various techniques and materials, towards the discovery of world of art and creativity.
The studio is found below the pine forest that overlooks the sea and is available every day at any time.
All of this began when in 2011 we dedicated Ferragosto, (the mid-August holiday) dedicated to creativity in its various expressions and artistic forms.
During that period our guests were invited to express themselves in writing, apparel and participate in sessions of painting and sculpture.
Artists have performed impromptu painting and live music, interacted with customers, making them an active part in the execution of the works, and have accompanied them, and directed to artistic experimentation.
Furthermore, as an expansion and a stimulus, a mini-documentary film festival of contemporary art: "Artecinema" in a summer version was presented under the stars and curated by gallery owner Laura Trisorio.
Thus Cala d'ARTconte was born, our "artists' resort ".
