Poy Art Project


In line with our associative principles we present the PoyArt project which we hope will represent the initial spark of the Art Movement in Poggetello

The project was born through a dialogue between the association, some of its members and Antonio in art Ferro, currently the project’s artistic director. The aim is to remodel the places of the small village through a dialogue between art, history and tradition. The urban space that becomes a place to express oneself, an open-air art gallery where the works do not remain confined to an enclosed space intended for an elite public but reach all citizens, guiding them on a completely new artistic path in which the street becomes a museum. A rebirth of the Abruzzo village where art becomes an open-air museum.
