It is an interesting time to deepen some aspects of the sustainability of art, a multidisciplinary topic explored by illustrious academics and experts, as well as by various personalities of culture.
In particular, the conference analyzes new expressive modes of the arts in a sustainable way in the era of new technologies, both in terms of bridging (bridges) between the arts and in terms of values, that is in terms of the capacity of the work art of being a bearer of a social message and/or a sustainable cultural-artistic promotion with positive effects on the community and on all the stakeholders involved.

Filippo Barberis, who has always been sensitive to the issues of valorization of the city of Milan, especially in terms of new opportunities for employment and expression for young people, illustrates his experience as a public administrator in the field.
The central moment of the conference is the promotion of the art of Carlo Caldara present at the event, eclectic physician and artist, who with his work spreads social messages, warnings to humanity in the era of new technologies. After the great success of his artistic exhibition in 2016 within the XXI International Triennial Exhibition in Milan, 2017 and 2018 are for him the years of international development with exhibitions scheduled in Rome at the MACRO, in Venice at the Guatemalan pavilion Of the Venice Biennale 57th International Art Exhibition, in Paris at the Orangerie Museum, and then in China and the USA.
Carlo Caldara is a sustainable artist because his works have an impressive impact on the stakeholders, uses recycled materials, creates bridging between the arts, osmotifying photography, painting, writing, sculpture.

03.04.2017 - Over Scepi Ad'Art. 1957 - 2017
Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 18.30 at the Galleria della Fondazione della Banca del Monte in Foggia (Italy), was inaugurated the exhibition "Over Scepi Ad'Art, 1957-2017".
The retrospective, organized by the Fondazione Banca del Monte and curated by Gaetano Cristino and Nicola Gentile, has traced the most significant stages of the multiform and famous expressions of art of the great "communications strategist", but also his "shares", ie the art works done by four hands with important artists such as Andy Warhol (in fact, was presented for the first time the double art work Red and Black Books Over, produced in tandem in New York in 1986), Mario Schifano, Norcia brothers and Pongo Painting 3D N.Y.
The exhibition, which is sponsored by the Regione Puglia, also proposes the different contexts that have fueled the artistic production of Scepi, from the painter mother, whose various works are exhibited, to the century-old location in Puglia of his family in the communication world, from early paintings up to the experience of the advertising campaigns for many major companies, including Campari, where he was considered heir to Fortunato Depero (a version of a Depero historical painting, "Squisito al selz", is exposed), from the film posters , starting with the fundamental "L’Uomo di marmo" (1977), which later became the "L’Uomo della Pace" (the original painting, which contains another "mystery", is shown), to the documentation of #Cancellato actions, conducted on 22 major Italian monuments to denounce the silence against disabled workers.
There is a chance to see one of the most provocative of Scepi experimental films, "Packaging", selected for the Biennale internazionale del Cinema di Venezia in 1982. The event's central core is made up of the Over Ad'Art works, in a significant anthology summarizing the thought "upside" of Fluxus artist matrix. Since the sixties, in fact, Scepi tries to overcome the emphatic acceptance of the image and consumption society, typical of Pop Art artists. This jack of all European consciousness - says Pierre Restany - leads him to erase with painting his creative work, "because everything is not only the market and consumption".
The exhibition allows you to see the last still unpublished work by Franco Scepi, "Pandora's box ... last hope", dedicated to Pope Francesco. About its contents "the most clandestine of historical Italian artists", to which should the prophetic work "L'Uomo della Pace" (inspired by the then Archbishop of Krakow Karol Wojtyla), still maintains a strict silence.
Marco Eugenio Di Giandomenico gave a lecture on Franco Scepi artist sustainability on the occasion of the opening of the exhibit.
