Why the Festival of Time in Sermoneta

Sermoneta is the symbol of thousands of realities of which the national territory is scattered: to Italy, and therefore to all of us, belongs a stratified past, a present in the making and a future in the name of innovation.

The Festival del Tempo is, therefore, a format for all US, for all Italian cities: it can be exported and become a widespread Festival and a regular appointment in the calendar of major national and European cultural events.

The Festival del Tempo, with the artistic direction of Roberta Melasecca and the production of Deal Art Platform, is promoted by Associazione ONLUS “Centro d’Arte e Cultura di Sermoneta”.

“Each personal and collective story is shaped by signs and trails that unfold in a constantly evolving present and that constitute our DNA, our profound being in time and space, our permanence in places through successive stratifications. We build urban and human landscapes, we adapt to them, we transform and protect them, we dig and reconstruct, we feed on narratives that flow continuously into objects and actions. We collect memories and use them to predict and generate the future, desiring a sort of timelessness. Time rests on places as a completely transparent veil, which reveals hidden desires, shadows, distant and near images, coinciding visions of reality where past, present and future chase each other.” (Roberta Melasecca)
