Who's behind the Project

Hi, we are the non-profit ForArts Cultural Association.

ForArts  was born from the idea of Gianluca and Edoardo, two young graduates in Business & Management and in Design and Visual Communication.

They immediately find an ally in Francesco, who gives life to Edoardo's artistic creations on the web: a bit like the tumultuous artistic process from idea to drawing on the canvas.

The Association was born with the aim of making Art a tool for cultural dissemination and social inclusion with Technology at its service!

In a historical moment like today's, we believe it is necessary to rethink Art, its function, its use and the spaces dedicated to it.

The Virtual Gallery project moves in this direction and will be donated to the Festival of the Agricultural Landscape XII Edition based in Monferrato, to the Associazione Culturale Davide Lajolo Onlus Davide Lajolo Onlus Cultural Association and to the Associazione per il Patrimonio dei Paesaggi Vitivinicoli di Langhe, Roero e Monferrato Association for the Heritage of Wine Landscapes of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato, organizers of the same.

Born in 2009 from an original idea by Laurana Lajolo, the Festival has documented, over a decade, the qualification process of the Monferrato and Langhe hilly territory, promoting the knowledge of agronomic, tourist, urban planning, food and wine specifities with the contribution of experts, university professors, agricultural entrepreneurs, associations, cultural and tourist operators.

We decline Art through Culture, Sustainability and Technology: help us to rethink Art!

Let's preserve the Cultural Heritage of Monferrato, Together We Can!

Let's start Together again from Art, Culture and Innovation!

The epidemiological emergency from Covid-19 has radically distorted the concept of art and sociality.

The lockdown has hit hard, and continues to hit, art, culture and tourism.

The social distancing will not allow the regular development in the Monferrato Territory of the "Festival of Agricultural Landscape XII Edition", which will be held via the web and which will deal with the Passion for the Earth, Sustainable Agriculture and Social Development: a hard blow to Tourism and to Culture!

Reason why ForArts has developed an innovative project with the aim of disseminating and making the Monferrato culture and its villages, vineyards, parish churches and castles available via the web that animate the pulse of a territory under the Protection of Heritage of Humanity hard hit in tourism and economics by Covid-19

Our goal, with your fundamental support, is the creation of a Virtual Gallery in 3 Dimensions that collects Pictorial and Photographic Works, tales, stories, anecdotes, facts, myths and legends of Monferrato.

As a famous phrase by Cornell Capa says: "Photography has the ability to provide images of man and his environment that are both works of art and moments of history"

The Gallery will be a revisited reconstruction of the museum floor of Palazzo Crova near Nizza Monferrato, in which there is a fantastic collection by the Davide Lajolo Cultural Association, in order to support Nizza M.to as the beating heart of Monferrato's culture.

The first Opera "Ulysses" will have the aim of introducing the exhibition experience by presenting Davide Lajolo, the man to whom the Gallery is dedicated: to those who fought so that his "nest" in Vinchio, and all of Italy, were free. Dedicated to those who have made art a source of inspiration.

Help us to support the Festival of the Agricultural Landscape XII Edition and the artistic and cultural development through a story about Monferrato: with the aim of handing down and protecting the conservative culture with an innovative method that makes the Art accessible for all!

By supporting the campaign you will support Monferrato, its culture, art, innovation and a young project!

Let's not stop the art, let's start again from the Art! THANK YOU!

The Gallery

The Gallery in which the photographic works will be inserted will be a reconstruction of the plan of the museum floor of Palazzo Crova near Nizza Monferrato.

The Project's goal is the creation of a guided Virtual Art Gallery (but also usable analogically) in an environment totally developed in 3 Dimensions through photographies of the Monferrato area, with hidden information that embraces the themes of Research, Innovation & Technology and which deal with in a web story:

- Agriculture and climate change;

- The consequent different management of Natural Resources;

- The use of technology in the vineyard;

- Biodiversity;

- The Monferrato Territory in a broad sense.

The idea is to tell them by placing emphasis on the differences between the past and the present in the Environmental and Technological field, including the concepts of Time (time span of the story) and Space (understood as the physical space of Monferrato) and of how man has acted on them.

The Gallery will host from 16 to 18 artworks, of which a part of pictorial art in collaboration with the Cultural Association Davide Lajolo Onlus and the rest of photographic art made in collaboration with the Cultural Association FuoriLuogo Asti and Agenzia Visiva Mikelerio, which obviously would be accompanied by tales, facts, stories, anecdotes and everything that can raise awareness in an artistic, innovative and sustainable way. the final user.

The first work "Ulysses" will have the aim of introducing the exhibition experience by presenting Davide Lajolo, the man to whom the Gallery is dedicated.

Dedicated to whom who fought for their Vinchio nest, and all of Italy, to be free.

Dedicated to whom who have made art a source of inspiration.

"Ulysses" will be followed by other pictorial works with their description (and presumably also other pictorial works), works exhibited inside Palazzo Crova in order to promote Nice as a cultural center, beating heart and nerve center of Monferrato.

The remaining spaces will be dedicated to a photographic exhibition of the Territory with the emphasis placed on the Wine Culture that has shaped the Territory, placing it by right in the Heritage of Humanity. Monferrato, as a preservation of its Ancient Culture: Land of history and wines, villages and hills, castles and valleys, parish churches, legends and breathtaking landscapes.

Project's goals | Cultural Heritage

- Create and pass on the Monferrato Cultural Heritage, embracing the Culture of Conservation through Innovation;

 - Make art inclusive and affordable for everyone;

- Bring an Art Gallery anywhere at any time;

- The protection, enhancement and networking of our precious cultural heritage;

- A Gallery for the Monferrino Territory, for its Artistic, Viticultural and Landscape Culture;

- A Gallery to Raise Awareness in the Environment to Preserve and Protect what, with meticulous care, the Generations of Winemakers have shaped with “the Hand in the Earth”;

- Use the emotional involvement of art as a vehicle for the dissemination of a story about Monferrato and about the women and men of Monferrato;

How the funds will be used

20% of the funds raised through your help will be donated to the "Davide Lajolo Onlus Association", funds that will be used for social development projects in the Territory.

The remaining part will be used for the creation of the Gallery and for the management of the project by the non-profit "Cultural Association ForArts": the funds will be used to repay part of the work and reinvested for the structuring of other inclusive projects on the Art and the Territory.

Part of the funds will also be allocated to the design, creation, printing, production and shipping of the rewards: we remind you that through the support in a certain donation range, the rewards of that same range and lower ones will be paid!

We will keep you updated on any development you have contributed to!

When and How to visit the Gallery

The Virtual Gallery will be presented in October on the occasion of the conclusion of the "12th Edition Agricultural Landscape Festival"!

It can be visited analogically or via a virtual guided tour, all via the web!

The access link to the Gallery will be inserted in the new website of the ForArts Cultural Association which will be released concurrently with the exit of the Gallery.

Access can also be made through the sites of the "Davide Lajolo Onlus Cultural Association" and the "Association for the Heritage of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato Wine Landscapes".

In any case, we will keep you updated on the release dates as soon as they are established with certainty! For any other doubts do not hesitate to contact us!

We reward your support!

The rewards will be sent and will be available from October: when the Gallery will be ready and will be distributed. This is because the Rewards will be equipped with a QR Code for real-time use of the Gallery!

You will be thanked in proportion to your contribution: you will receive the rewards of the reference donation range plus the rewards of the lower ones!

As Andy Warhol put it: "I believe that having the Earth and not ruining it is the most beautiful form of art".

"Sustainable Artwork": we were inspired by the famous words of the greatest exponent of Pop Art and the needs of modern consumerism, with the aim of minimizing the impact on the planet! The box that will contain the rewards will be made entirely of recycled cardboard and will be transformed into a frame, with inside a Photographic Work of the exhibition on Monferrato in photo paper measuring 42 cm x 59.4 cm.

This choice will help us thank you for your support, protecting the environment: we like to argue that even many tiny grains of sand can create a mountain!
