“Autoritratto (una luna)” is a series of 29 pencil self-portraits, sketched by the artist over the course of a few months. The artist Chiara Camoni is the winner of the Over 35 section of the Public Call "Cantica21. Italian Contemporary Art Everywhere". Promoted by the Directorate General for Cultural and Economic Promotion and Innovation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, and by the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture. The initiative aims to promote Italian contemporary art by sustaining the works of emerging or established artists and displaying them in the Italian Cultural Institutes, Embassies and Consulates of the world. The result is a pervasive, “scattered” art exhibition.
The project is divided into three distinct sections: the first, reserved for artists or collectives up to 35 years of age; the second for artists or collectives over the age of 35; the third for works (with no restrictions of technique) dedicated to Dante Alighieri on the occasion of the 700th anniversary of his death.
