Martina Franca: si avvia alla conclusione il Festival di pittura, poesia e narrativa ‘Artemozioni’

Martina Franca: si avvia alla conclusione il Festival di pittura, poesia e narrativa ‘Artemozioni’

https://www.giornaledipuglia.com/2019/03/martina-franca-si-avvia-alla.html

 

di TERESA GENTILE – Si avvia alla fase conclusiva  il Concorso di poesia e narrativa incluso nella quinta biennale del Festival Internazionale delle Emozioni, Si tratta di una prestigiosa manifestazione culturale che in questa edizione ha affrontato l’attualissima tematica delle sette opere di misericordia corporale.
L’evento, fortemente voluto dalla poetessa ed artista Lucia Torricella, dinamica presidente dell’Associazione ‘Artemozioni’ di Martina Franca, nasce da un’idea della stessa presidente che con il suo ottimismo ed entusiasmo, le sue idee, la sua passione e la sua grande energia è riuscita a coinvolgere tutti in questo meraviglioso progetto.
L’11 maggio, alle 19, si terrà il vernissage alla presenza di critici e artisti di valenza internazionale ed il 18 maggio, sempre alle ore 19, si concluderà l’evento ed i pittori avranno dai critici le recensioni alle loro opere nel Sala degli Uccelli del Palazzo Ducale di Martina Franca (TA). C’è da registrare una innovazione perché accanto ad opere figurative si è dato spazio anche ad opere caratterizzate da espressionismo informale e astratto capace di generare emozioni negli osservatori. Da alcuni giorni la commissione letteraria sta esaminando moltissimi racconti e poesie pervenuti da varie regioni d’Italia ma anche dall’estero e che si stanno rivelando di grande pregio e ricchi di messaggi attualissimi.
La premiazione del concorso letterario si terrà il 4 maggio alle 19 nella piazzetta antistante il MuBa (Museo della Basilica di San Martino).
L’esposizione delle opere d’arte si terrà dall’11 al 18 maggio nelle sale del Palazzo Ducale dalle 10 alle 12,30 e dalle 17 alle 20.
Il tema di questa avanguardistica manifestazione culturale è pregno di straordinaria attualità, poiché mira a rieducarci ad essere umani e misericordiosi. Ciò è importante in un’epoca caratterizzata da turbolenza spirituale, sfaldamento di valori, odio, violenza e persecuzioni. Tempi in cui occorre imparare a difenderci e soccorrerci vicendevolmente, sfamando, dando da bere, alloggiando i pellegrini, visitando chi è infermo o carcerato, seppellendo i morti, ecc.
Da dipinti, racconti e poesie emerge una umanità sofferente, priva di speranze e certezze, ferita nel corpo e nello spirito da povertà e malattie ma che viene soccorsa da una umanità ancora ricca di misericordia. Del resto le opere di misericordia educano all’attenzione verso le esigenze più elementari dei nostri fratelli più indifesi, deboli e piccoli, e rappresentano un «formidabile antidoto» al male dei “cuori di pietra” in un mondo ‘colpito’ dal terribile virus dell’indifferenza. Attraverso semplici gesti quotidiani di pazienza, rispetto, conforto, vicinanza, solidarietà possiamo compiere una vera rivoluzione culturale. Altra opera importante da compiere è poi quella di limitare i disastri ambientali, poiché essi pongono a repentaglio la nostra stessa sopravvivenza. Tali disastri emergono sempre più e potrebbero essere evitati o quanto meno limitati, dal momento che i loro effetti sono spesso dovuti a mancanza di cura dell’ambiente da parte dell’uomo. Bisogna imparare a tutelare non solo i nostri simili e noi stessi ma anche la nostra casa comune, promuovendo una cultura di prevenzione, con l’aiuto anche delle nuove conoscenze e riducendo i rischi per le popolazioni più vulnerabili.

Poem by Monsif  BEROUAL

 

PLANET: HISTORY ROOM 

Dear Human beings,
I lost the words, I wish if I could spell a word
Am the blamed one, the only one !
And The coming generation will says the same
Our grandparents faults
I wish if I can tell more words
But I’ve lost all the words
Every day I see the moon, I stares to that sun
Above me that sky full of stars
Under my feet that lands
Breathing the same air
But we never value that homeland
Hoping and wishing for better world
Without wars,
Without hate.
Does am the only one?
I wonder with that pain killing my heart
But all my hopes were caged into history room
What could we say for them
But we are the blamed one
We lost control and we let anger control our needs
We could not bring the change
We only brought the wars
Cause we couldn’t understand
We couldn’t forgot
Cause we couldn’t forgive
We just brought the history to the future,
To the present,
To hate each other
We couldn’t learn
But we learned to keep hating each other
Without understanding each other
Without given chance to love each other
That is us, our beloved human beings generation.

# let not give the chance to hatred to be raised
We are only one family around the world
Christian, jewish , muslim , atheist
We are brothers and sisters sisters
We are just human beings
