Paolo Vergnano

From Feb. 25 to Sept. 29, 2024, the Federico Eusebio Civic Museum in Alba will host a solo exhibition by Alba artist Paolo Vergnano entitled “Sogni digitali – Digital Dreams.”
The Maccario Hall of the Alba museum, the scene of elegant temporary exhibitions, will thus be embellished with Vergnano’s images in which elements of zoological nature often appear in real environments, animals such as zebras, pelicans or giraffes, creating surreal and dreamlike atmospheres.
Paolo Vergnano, a biologist who has been passionate about artistic photography for many years and has won numerous national and international awards, tells:

“I started with the idea of translating into photography, the different perception that man has with respect to nature regarding the concept of gift.
Nature is forthright and does not make use of gratuitous actions; it feeds on light and darkness.
We have a natural difficulty in recognizing what is, from what appears.
A flower for example, we connect it to a gift that nature has created solely for us, when it is nothing more than a way to promulgate the species.”

The use of postproduction techniques for the artist is not meant to be aimed at marveling with spectacularity, but at creating a dreamlike atmosphere, peculiar to these places.
While the fact of shooting mostly the animal world is a choice consistent with his love for nature and hisbeing a vegetarian.
Vergnano continues:

I wanted to express the sacredness of life in a potential form, a quiescent phase, suspended between winter and spring, life and death, sleep and wakefulness.
The plant, as it appears in my work is in a transitional phase, ready to transform into what we consider proper with flowers and leaves.
To enhance this thought, I focused on the least conspicuous time of year and the roots, the hidden part of the tree, without which, however, all this would not be possible.”

The exhibition will have the following opening hours: Tuesday through Friday, 3 to 6 p.m., Saturday, Sunday and holidays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 to 7 p.m. Free admission.

Ambiente & Cultura

L’associazione Ambiente & Cultura, nata nel luglio 2010, riunisce gruppo di giovani laureati in materie umanistiche e scientifiche, convinti del valore essenziale che le tematiche ambientali e culturali ricoprono in qualunque tentativo di sviluppo sostenibile, efficiente e armonico dell’individuo e della società. Dal 2019 abbiamo sede nella chiesa di San Giuseppe ad Alba, splendido complesso barocco sei-settecentesco, recuperato dall'incuria e dal degrado da Proteggere Insieme, protezione civile specializzata nella tutela e nella salvaguardia dei beni culturali, e ora divenuto un attivissimo centro culturale. Agiamo in stretta sinergia con il centro culturale San Giuseppe, con Proteggere Insieme, con le Edizioni Langhe, Roero e Monferrato, con l'Associazione per il patrimonio UNESCO dei paesaggi vitivinicoli di LRM e con le diverse realtà che ruotano intorno a questo luogo della cultura ritrovato. Abbiamo collaborato. ad oggi, col museo civico archeologico e di scienze naturali F. Eusebio di Alba (CN), con il museo del colonnello Martina di Monforte (CN), con il museo delle Langhe presso il castello di Grinzane Cavour (CN) e con l’ecomuseo delle Rocche del Roero e diverse altre realtà e enti del territorio. Operiamo nei campi della didattica museale, della divulgazione scientifica e nella valorizzazione dei beni culturali all’interno del territorio nel suo complesso e amiamo incrociare discipline diverse e instaurare nuovi dialoghi tra interlocutori inaspettati. Mission dell'associazione è creare legami e relazioni: tra le persone, siano esse cittadini residenti o visitatori ospiti del territorio, enti, istituzioni e analoghe associazioni.
