“Latera the art Farm” acts as a promoter for the artistic redevelopment of the ancient medieval village of Latera in Lazio, a long forgotten village with a strong imprint of depopulation, to make it attractive from a tourist point of view.
The work covered by the tender will be the symbolic work of the “Latera the Art Farm” initiative, e it will be included in the open-air exhibition itinerary within the context of the historic village.

of the work during the abovementioned period of the artist's stay in the Lazio municipality.
The artistic intervention in question, in fact, stands as a symbol, fitting in within a larger exhibition project, which will see the involvement of further visual artists, who will be called upon to create artistic works of street art, sculptural/installative works, as well as the creation of artistic design works aimed at redevelopment of the rooms of the widespread hotel currently being renovated.
A real and open-air museum thanks to the works and interventions of various artist people.
The aforementioned artistic interventions will arise from the contamination as well as the involvement of the city community.
