#19 Sant’Antioco – Contemporary art at Faro Mangiabarche

Not in many places in the world you can watch an artistic performance on the rocks by the seaside on a Sunday morning of a touristic place.

In Calasetta, though, Sant’Antioco Island, you can. The Fondazione MACC (Contemporary Art Museum of Calasetta) and its sparkling director Efisio Carbone made it possible indeed. While Francesca Romana Motzo was playing her clarino, unseen, from within a World War II bunker, Paulina Herrera Letelier‘s weaving piece was glittering mysteriously against the rocks. The Mangiabarche (boat-eater) lighthouse was controlling it all from the back, and for a moment magic happened.

The project is conceived and realized by me, Lucio Bellomo, born in 1983 in Palermo, Sicily. Which is also Italy ;-) I am (not proud of being) an engineer in electronics. After the PhD I worked as a physical oceanographer in France, doing research on the physical phenomena that rule the oceans. I took part in several long international oceanographic cruises onboard research vessels. Eager for an even tighter contact with the sea, I left the University and today I work as a diving instructor, both SCUBA and freediving, in small Mediterranean islands and tropical seas. In my spare time I fancy sailing: I began in the Mediterranean Sea and am continuing in the Atlantic Ocean.
