Emblematically perfect figures, almost Argonauts of the new millennium with Sardinia in their souls.

EXHIBIT BY FRANCO NONNIS from October 6 to October 24, in our shop at Corso Vittorio Emanuele 20 in Sassari.

Emigration in Sardinia was mainly induced by economic reasons, but those who left did so with the desire to return, to carve out a space of peace at home in the last phase of their lives. Today, our emigration is radically changing, those who leave often do so with a robust educational and personal background, they are often excellent, but… capitalizing on these values in our island is increasingly difficult, not only for economic reasons. It is hard to decide to stay, hard to decide to come back, that’s why I fear that emigration is turning into an irreversible cancer, into dereliction. This “creative reflection” has resulted in the acronym that titles this exhibition: D-ESULO. Emblematically perfect figures, almost Argonauts of the new millennium with Sardinia in the soul, are waiting for you…
