guest artists: Fred Berthold, Philippe Nicolas, Domenico Sorrentino

The exhibition, already presented at one of Venice's historical palaces as part of the city's 58 th International Art Exhibition of the Biennale, offers a series of tactile creations staged as 'opera'. Love is blind/Blind for Love is made up of nine episodes inspired in their narration by the legend of Cupid and Psyche as told by Apuleius in Metamorphoses, and in their composition by great masters in the fields of music, literature, art and cinema. The artist wants us to discover a new way of seeing, to heighten awareness on the need to look using not only sight but also other senses, to be more receptive to the people around us and to overcome the barrieres of diversity. In fact, the show focuses on the differences between external perception - physical sight - and interior perception made possible by the sense of touch, hearing and smell, inviting visitors to truly see with 'the body's eyes'.

The exhibition involves the Sienese branch of the Italian Union of the Blind and partially Sighted.
