ICELAND

from Iceland photo by Alberto Maccagno

Un lembo di terra lontano e sottile. Un ecosistema fragile ma guerriero, come gli abitanti che la vivono. Una terra che urla, vive, regala e conquista. Colori intensi e forme d'arte scolpite e modellate da una natura aspra ma generosa: l'Islanda racconta la storia di un mondo che si sta ancora trasformando e regala emozioni uniche ad ogni sguardo. Fuoco e ghiaccio dettano le regole per uno scenario perfetto, campo ideale per ogni tipo di artista. In questa natura selvaggia vive da oltre mille anni un popolo rude e indipendente, discendente prima dei vichinghi e poi dei pastori che fuggirono dalla tirannide della Scandinavia medioevale per fondare una nuova nazione, dando vita ad una delle più vecchie democrazie del mondo moderno.

A distant and sparsely vegetated place with a fragile eco-system, cosseted by the warmth of a beneficent ocean current, fighting for survival as did its early inhabitants, Iceland is a remote area of living rock crying out, giving and taking back.
Yet nature, with all its intense natural colors and forms chiseled and hewn by a rough yet magnanimous force imitates art and arouses disturbing emotions with every glance. Here fire and ice together collude to create the inviolable rules that have made a perfect setting for artists of all kinds. Independent and rugged people have lived in this wilderness for over a thousand years, descendants of Vikings first, then of shepherds who fled the tyranny of medieval Scandinavia to form a new nation, one which has given rise to one of the oldest democracies in the modern world.
