Morcote celebrates contemporary art with an exhibition, featuring sculptures and installations by fteen artists, conceived as a path which unravels through the village. Along the path you will encounter two installations which were created especially for the exhibit: the rst one can be found in the historical and delightful village centre, the Torre del Capitano (the Captain’s Tower) where Alex Dorici has created two structures made out of nautical rope and lit up with Black light. The second artwork, by Miki Tallone, can be seen on the jetty: a homage to the Ceresio, the lake onto which Morcote faces, taking the shape of a contem- porary stilt house dwelling inspired by the Neolithic period. Facing the lake, the interior of an anonymous container has been converted by Christian Megert into a mirror labyrinth. Our deceptive percep-
tion of this “never-ending room” is subsequently magni ed by the superb view onto the lake through which a steel wool cloud encased in Plexiglas by Margherita Turewicz Lafranchi is ltered. The path ends inside Parco Scherrer, a garden built in the Thir- ties by the visionary entrepreneur Arturo Scherrer which treasures, along with its original pavilions and arti cial structures evocative of great wonders from all four corners of
the world, nine more sculptures by internationally famed artists.
