The idea consists of relating the ancient hermitages of Abruzzo with the culture of today.

The spiritual, historical and identity-making heritage materialized in prestigious buildings or in simple grottos, is enhanced through the comparison with the most advanced expressions of contemporary art.

They are not conventional works, not handmade products created in workshop and carried on site. We asked to the artists to lose themselves in the atmosphere of the hermitages and to specifically realize a work inspired by this experience; we invited them to interpret the “hermitage context”. That’s to say the nature, the built spaces, the web of connections, the traditions – so all the aspects that determine the uniqueness of these remote and evocative places.
