The title of the event – borrowed from archaeological finds in the city of Brindisi – recalls the places of universal synergies between earth and water, the relationship between ancient and contemporary, the dichotomy between identity and territory, the difference between fragment and uniqueness, with works and unpublished projects of 60 national and international artists, many of them present in prestigious museum collections.

The multidisciplinary Art Festival crosses and explores different territories of art, sound, performance, and is proposed as a concrete sign of a constantly changing society, launching new challenges and convey the visitors into imaginative connections. A journey into life, in the color, between the boundaries of reality and fiction, in synergy dialogue with the Apulian territory.
