Give me a thousand kisses, then a hundred, then a thousand again.
The immortal verses of the poet Catullus sound as alive and intense today as they once did. A request for love that has passed through the millennia intact and which today resonates as a symbolic invitation from the poet to visit the XVI edition of the Collective Exhibition of Sirmione Artists.
Love and kisses, evoked by the magical atmospheres of Sirmione and the themes of the event, have always fascinated and inspired artists and poets.
A universal and never predictable theme, a tribute to Lillo Marciano an artist who loved Sirmione very much and whose work, Kiss Please welcomes and surprises lovers at the entrance to the Muse beach, in the heart of the historic center of Sirmione.
Great participation, also for this edition, of artists from Sirmione who with their works will lead visitors on an evocative journey through the most diverse ideas and artistic languages, in a free exploration of the theme of love. An embrace of art and emotions that will light up the atmosphere of Palazzo Callas Exhibitions, the home of Sirmione artists. The inauguration with authors and protagonists is set for Thursday 7 December 2023 at 6:00 pm; the exhibition will remain open to the public until Sunday 10 March 2024.
