Sofia is probably the only European capital with such a big mountain so close to the city center. The city is one of the highest capitals in Europe too. How not to see the Vitosha mountain? How not to recognize its profile around the city of Sofia? The Vitosha exhibition is a project presented by four artists (Adriano Ponte, Luisa de Donato, Tzu Ning Chiang, Valentina Sciarra) and inspired precisely by this mountain, its relation to the body of the capital city of Bulgaria and the people who daily lay eyes on it. The exhibition is composed of a series of new works specially created for the event and includes installations, paintings, sculptures and drawings. The homogeneity searched by the works is not given by the different techniques but rather by the theme. The implementation of each work indeed is driven by the same object of analysis: the Vitosha and its profile, its shadows, its vegetation, its light.
