The Reasons Behind a "Cultural Project"


We have reached the FIFTH and LAST FORUM.

In the years since the death of the German master Joseph Beuys, we have made an intensive effort to transform the small town of Bolognano into a site emblematic of international culture and art.

Despite the cultural, intellectual and moral crisis that holds the entire planet in its grasp, there are still men who see FREE CREATIVITY as the only way to live in peace with themselves and to act in accordance with the fundamental principles of Humankind and Mother Nature. Thanks to this very outlook, a "network of steel" has developed over the years, constantly welcoming new disciplines and explorations, figures of different nationalities and generations, all united by a free, undiminished "creativity" that translates into deep, unfettered knowledge, giving rise to transactions governed by a supportive, unconstrained collaboration. Such men, with their unstinting, unceasing work, their wise and independent efforts, move beyond the standard systems of consumer society, striving through their conduct - the one effective means of Communicating the Truth - to improve society.

The Fifth Free International Forum is dedicated to these CREATIVE PEOPLE.

We have decided to "conclude" this inspiring project - on the conceptual note of the number 5 - with a reflection on the rich symbolic contents of Beuys' work OLIVESTONE: namely the Concrete Universe and the Alchemy of Art.

Each individual can view the results from his or her own perspective, but what has been built over the years in Bolognano is a plastic model of practicality and truth, and specifically the Truth that, by moving beyond SYSTEMS, it becomes possible to live and to love realty.

This is why the FIFTH FREE INTERNATIONAL FORUM is dedicated to Creativity in the Place of Nature, where the History of an open, unconventional view of Art and Culture also serves as a message for posterity, providing irrefutable evidence of the 'seeds' that have been sown with passion and courage, so as to improve Society.

My aim in holding this fifth and last Forum in the Paradise Plantation - THE PLACE OF NATURE - in Bolognano is to set in motion a joyous celebration in which everyone feels free to be themselves, creating magical moments that transform this "Place" into an exclusive dream true to the two fundamental concepts of the Master Joseph Beuys:

- The Free and Creative Energy possessed by all people of the Earth.

- The Free and Caring Collaboration between different societies and cultures: his famous Living Sculpture.

My deepest gratitude goes to the ARTISTS and REMARKABLE INDIVIDUALS with whom, over more than 30 years, I have created an 'ethical network' true to the principles that have always served as the foundation for our common efforts, far removed from any form of compromise. We have persevered through the sheer force of Creative Energy, Willpower and Integrity, creating a PLACE in the Spirit of Total Art, a friend of Time, within a Time that lies outside of our Times: an historic example and a message in which
