Living Rocks 2009

From 24 May 2009 to 24 June 2009

On the embankments DIGA which defend the historic centre of the city of Caorle the rocks become transformed into sculptures during the international artistic event Living Rocks. The statues adorn the walls reaching as far north as the Sanctuary of the Madonna dellAngelo, the church facing the waters which acts as guardian to the seamen of the area (it houses a statue of the Virgin Mary which tradition says was fished out of the sea). This years 13th edition of the event sees famous artists such as Sergio Cappellini, Alba Gonzales, Cesare Serafino and Marko Zelenko. Once again Caorle, the little Venice, becomes a type of artistic laboratory in which sculptors transform the giant blocks of Euganean stone into stunning works of art which enrich the natural beauties of the seafront of Caorle, turning itself into an open-air museum.

The event remains one of the most suggestive of the summer throughout the Veneto region, emphasizing the two aspects of Caorle: a genuine home of art and culture with unique monuments both natural and artistic, and a thriving seaside resort.
