Il filo e i segni

08/05 - 30/05/2013
Musei di Villa Torlonia,
Casina delle Civette

The aim of the exhibition is the promotion and protection of Female Applied Arts and the defense, promotion and enhancement of culture and art in the field of embroidery, lace and textiles in general.

This Embroidery Exhibition starts with a conference on the history of costume, lace, and other textile crafts. At the same time the exhibition will display also some paintings by the Cypriot sculptor living in Venice, Iosif Hadzikyriakos, where the artist shows the absolute dedication of women-priestesses in the art of embroidery.
The other artworks on display are by the Roman artist Antonella Argiroffo, focusing on the specific female creative capacity. The exhibition will be dedicated to the art of embroidery in Lefkara with ancient objects, and will highlight the cross-historic art of embroidery from the Venetian period until today, and the Italian and Cypriot specific styles.
