Off to the summer activities!
“Deruta, Borgo delle Arti” (Deruta, a village of the arts) until 30 September
A mosaic of art, culture, music, theater and exhibitions centered on the artistic tradition of handmade ceramics. All this and more is “Deruta, Borgo delle Arti”, which until September 30 will animate the evenings of citizens and tourists with numerous appointments, in presence, in total safety, and online, which highlight the squares, alleys and beauties of the area.
Onno Verschoor, artistic director of Accademia Amsterdam, will curate various musical initiatives in the summer calendar.
“Deruta, Borgo delle Arti” has also a social value
“We are inaugurating a large container of summer events, which expresses the desire to restart.”
“We want to continue to stimulate culture and well-being”, says the mayor of Deruta, Michele Toniaccini, “Ceramic is a symbol of our tradition and identity, a calling card of our territories. The pandemic has slowed the economy but has not stopped the desire to carry out projects and initiatives, to make us ready when we restart. Which, I am sure, will arrive soon. The calendar of summer events demonstrates the sense of unity, but also the desire, the hope and the will to restart again”.
