The contemporary exhibition  titled “CORRESPONDENCE” is a singular event of contemporary visual arts, which focuses on the production of VISUAL POETRY, MAIL ART, ARTIST BOOK, INSTALLATIONS and VIDEO-POETRY made by local, national and international artists. The event will be set up in one of the most beautiful heritage monuments in the city of Lecce: Ex Conservatory of St. Anna in Lecce, in the heart of the city.

The title “Correspondence” refers to the first section of the book The Flowers of Evil by Charles Baudelaire, the most extensive poem, entitled “Spleen and the Ideal”. According to what the poet say ” Reality is the place where one comes into contact with the spiritual world, with that deeper truth of things that goes beyond their outward appearance (the temple) ..
So the choice of the location goes well with the artistic-visual project, indicating broadly and according to the poetics of Baudelaire, the place of communication between the material world and the spiritual world. The symbolic meeting of distant worlds.

Through writing, the symbol and the archetype, each artist shows off their particular artistic , symbolic, olfactory, sound, visual and innovative language.
The event opens with an action / reading by the poet and performer Massimiliano Manieri from Lecce.
