INTO THE GARDEN
by Alessandro Baronciani
The leading men of Room 309 is Alessandro Baronciani, who took advantage of an artistic residency to envisage an ad-hoc project carried out on the walls and furnishings of the room.
The inspiration behind Alessandro Baronciani’s latest project, a black and white painted garden, can be found in the “Boscareccia Room” in Bologna’s Palazzo Sanguinetti, the building that currently hosts the Museum of Music. The artist enjoyed the opportunity to collaborate with the museum in mounting the exhibition “Rewind” in 2013.
This “gardening” project took place over the four days of the Festival, transforming the selected hotel room into a true artist’s residence and work of art, a treasure to be added to the hotel’s enviable “collection” of creative theme rooms.
The room was created in collaboration with the 2013 edition of the International Comics Festival BilBOlbul, and was inaugurated together with the artist on Februari 24, 2013.
Alessandro Baronciani, born in Pesaro, he lives and works between Milan and Pesaro as an art director, illustrator and cartoonist for advertising agencies and publishing houses.
