"The performance's main focus is not about the individual conception of it by the artist, but about the fusion and involvement between the people in the artistic world and those you may encounter on the street, who are part of the common and daily life." With these words, Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto addressed one of the main tenets of his recurring Walking Sculpture performance, the latest of which was organized by Magazzino Italian Art on November 4, 2017, down the streets of Cold Spring, New York.

Magazzino Italian Art

Magazzino Italian Art introduced its events programming on September 15, 2017, with a special screening of NYsferatu: Symphony of a Century: a hand-animated, silent film by Italian artist Andrea Mastrovito. Captivating a fascinated public for over an hour, the artist’s oeuvre was set to the live musical accompaniment of the Marco Cappelli acoustic trio in the open air of Magazzino’s courtyard.

Inspired by Friedrich W. Murnau’s 1922 Nosferatu film, the Italian artist resurrected this iconic vampire film with a contemporary twist. At a time of political unrest, NYsferatu’s timely plotline depicted the multiple hardships and stereotypes immigrants encounter on a daily basis. Mastrovito captured this principle as a result of basing his visual narratives on his numerous conversations with recent immigrants.
