A SECRET CONVERSATION IN SICILY - SUMMER 2019
At the end of the 19th century, the era in which freedom of expression amongst women was very limited, the fan became the ideal instrument for communicating, and a code was designed for secret conversations that could be held in public. Dell’Oglio re-invokes the game of seduction during a hot Sicilian summer.
THE MASSIMO CAZZANIGA FOUNDATION AND DOMENICO PELLEGRINO
The fan is a significant object in many cultures. Those used by our actors are part of an important private collection belonging to the Massimo Cazzaniga Foundation, held between Palazzo Pantelleria in Palermo and the family villa in Melzo. The Palermitan artist Domenico Pellegrino created a new contamination of lanugages with personalised fans designed exclusively for Dell’Oglio.
