Linea Amarilla-Linea Gialla-Yellow Line is the traveling urban art and culture project conceived by Mario Alvarez who has already traveled in Italy and around the world, connecting the suburbs to the historic center in the cities involved through a journey through the arts. The Linea Amarilla-Linea Gialla-Yellow Line urban sign invites the visitor to stop, to pay attention because there is something new: the living and real interaction between art, literature and the city.
The project is promoted by AmarilloArt which, like every year, participates together with Amaci in the Contemporary Day, now in its 19th edition.
There are various initiatives connected to the Amarilla Line-Yellow Line route.
It begins with the performance event “Cervantes in Italy”: exhibitions, video installations, readings, dialogues, gastronomy, tertulias inspired by the great Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes.
The artist Mario Alvarez has been carrying out his “Cervantes Itinerante” project since 2003, following in the footsteps of the great Spanish writer. Through historical-literary research and insights and artistic performances, Mario Alvarez documents and ideally bears witness to the strong bond between the great Spanish writer and Italy. The artist almost identifies with Cervantes in his love for Italy, its culture, its literature, its heritage of art and genius and the shared biographical and emotional elements take over, transfiguring reality. And so Mario Alvarez “rides” together with Cervantes across our peninsula.
The project traveled between Spain, France and Italy.
The Linea Amarilla-Linea Gialla-Yellow Line initiatives will continue throughout the month of October and November, both in Italy and Spain.
There are many events scheduled, including: ‘Urban Echoes - Italian and Latin American artists compared’; on 16 October AmarilloArt presents the exhibition-performance “Los panes del Mundo” by Mario Alvarez, on the occasion of World Food Day organized by FAO; in Spain, in Alcalá de Henares (Madrid), the 'Semana Cervantina' is celebrated from 7 to 15 October.
