Within the framework of the events “Popoli Pop Cult Festival” that will be held in Bagnara di Romagna called “The lands of Czar”, there will be also an exhibition of icons. These art pieces are made according the tradition which has been handed over to the East for centuries and which in Italy has found an interest and resumption from over forty years now.

The show is set up inside the historic Sforza Castle built in the 15th century on the ruins of the Visconti Castle.

The icons exhibited show the fundamental themes of iconography: Christ, The Mother of God, Angels, Saints, and Scenes of the Bible. These are paintings performed as in the past with elements of nature: wood, chalk, rabbit skin glue, gold, natural pigments, precious stones minced, egg yolk and white wine.
In the past there were no chemical synthesis products, and so they sought in nature materials to express materialized light, that light coming down from above. And we must also say that the quality of these materials remains unsurpassed.
