UN SUGGESTIVO VIAGGIO CON LE MUSICHE DI ANTONIO FRESA NEL BOSCO DELLA FONDAZIONE GIORGIO CINI

At the 16th Biennale, the Holy See participated for the first time in the International Architecture Exhibition with a multi-site pavilion on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore: 10 architects of proven experience each designed a chapel in the atmospheric wood of the Giorgio Cini Foundation. A place so rich in artistic and spiritual inspiration could not possibly leave a sensitive musician and composer like Antonio Fresa indifferent. The musical project is produced by D’Uva with Adesiva Discografica, for the Giorgio Cini Foundation.
