Overview by Various authorsComune di Ripacandida

Overview by Various authorsComune di Ripacandida

Thanks to the work of one of our fellow citizen and artist, Vito Miroballi, in these environments that best express the fertile place of spiritual culture that was the town, an outpost has emerged that is well representative of the three fundamental forms of artistic representation, the imitative, informative and decorative, which develops along the path of humanity, from prehistory to the present
