Later its very suspiciousness seemed a virtue. I came to like its hovering connotation of abject narcisissim, its reek of the cheaply decorative, its status as a kind of disco-generate category….”

Operazione Arcevia. Comunita’ Esistenziale.

Como: Editrice Cesare Nani, 1976.

Thick oblong small octavo, un paginated, illustrated throughout. Illustrated wrappers.

- First edition. Catalogue documenting this interesting ‘socio-economical revival’ of the region around Arcevia in the Italian province of Ancona. Involved in this project 32 artists, film makers, composers and architects among which Antonioni, Arman, Burri, Ceroli, Cesar, Corneille, di Bello, Nannucci, Soto, Tilson, Trubbiani…’.

‘L'utopico progetto “Operazione Arcevia” viene ideato nell'agosto del 1972. Italo Bartoletti, nativo di Palazzo di Arcevia e profondamente innamorato del suo luogo d'origine, studia e analizza la lo sviluppo e i cambiamenti socio-economici del territorio arceviese nel periodo del boom economico e industriale. L'assetto prevalentemente agricolo del territorio ne fanno luogo soggetto all'emigrazione dei residenti, sottoponendolo ad uno spopolamento continuo che rende Arcevia e il suo territorio, una località emarginata dal brulicare d'innovazione e di cultura dei centri industriali. Bartoletti, individua in questa caratteristica un punto forte (quanto mai attuale) in questa caratteristica da ideare e sviluppare per farne una meta turistica, seppur differente e nel pieno rispetto della caratteristica locale. Il progetto viene affidato all'amico architetto comasco Ico Parisi che crea un progetto ad hoc per il ripopolamento a partire dalla zona di Palazzo di Arcevia… .’ Laura Coppi
