Alberto Garutti, Untitled, 1997, Fabbrica
Garutti’s idea is to restore a building that is significant for the village and make it usable again, while maintaining its original features. Speaking with the locals, listening to the tales and stories of the past, the artist identifies a building owned by the curia, used as a parish hall.
That place, which had previously served as a theater, was a meeting point: here the destinies of the inhabitants were intertwined and bonds were born, sometimes even sentimental ones. What Garutti creates is a restoration of the façade with a mainly symbolic intention. At the entrance he also inserts an inscription that reads: “This work is dedicated to the girls and boys who fell in love in this small theater. July 18th, 1997 “.
