Poy Art Project_2024


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 several years ago through a dialogue between some of the association’s members. 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, artistically and socially. A rebirth of our Abruzzo village where art becomes an open-air museum and places spaces for socialization and memory.


  • Interventions Installations

Every year a visual arts curator selects different artists who, with their different expressive means, intervene in the streets and squares of the village.

  • Literary interventions

Every year a literary curator selects several authors who exhibit and present their works during the days of the event.

  • Musical interventions

Every year a music curator selects several artists who perform during the evenings of the event.

  • Food and wine meetings

Every year, in conjunction with the artistic events, we promote local gastronomy and wine testing sections of wineries in our region.



artistic director and curator of visual arts interventions

Artistic interventions

An all-round artist, he was born in Rome in 1971. After studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, he graduated from “La Sapienza” University in Psychology and subsequently obtained a PhD.

The logic that governs his figures is a progression to successive effects of seduction: in his photographic works the materiality becomes tactile, in his sculptures each material echoes its intimate beauty, uniqueness and presence. A reference to instinctuality, to cultivating that internal universe and harmonizing it with the context without prevarication, where the work represents a solipsism that draws its origins from a collective conscience.

Serena Ciccone

Born in L’Aquila in 1985 and raised in Calascio, she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts of L’Aquila in Painting, with a thesis on Art, Science and Spirituality, and is attending the two-year course in Painting in Rome. In 2019 he founded the YAW Association with his colleague Riccardo Rufini, an experimental laboratory of artistic residencies and collaborations with other disciplines. He currently lives and works in Bracciano, in the province of Rome.
His research is constantly evolving and arises from the need to find meaning in what appears ephemeral and transitory. He works in relation to spaces and figures where the voids draw attention to other dimensions and realities and for this reason the works always remain open to new potential interventions, even if only mental and not necessarily real.

… the void is a manifestation of energy, and therefore can be fruitful.
