Art and “merendate” in the show that was conceived by Pirimpi

The exhibition of watercolors by author Leo Filippeschi and Gianpaolo Minuti Innocenti

Opening and invitation to “merendata” Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 18

They called him Pirimpi and is an icon of the legendary Valdicecina.
A man of clear mind, and personality disruptive, Giorgio Betti, original operator of the namesake coffee Ponteginori, in the town of Montecatini Val di Cecina (PI), which now bears his name, was a promoter and supporter of the arts of the territory, to which he gave fundamental impulses, that amalgam of style and creative life that was lived his coffee-tavern scene of his romance existential journey.

On the initiative of the grandchildren heirs of style and passion, Enrico and Matteo Betti, and two artists from the place, back in the third edition of “Acquerellando”, the exhibition, conceived by him, which once linked the “merendate” visual art festivals superfine , following the motto that “the allocation of water, instead of the wine, it is in the water…”.

And with the same pathos, one of the authors who has his first exposure to Pirimpi, the ponteginorino Leo Filippeschi, along with Gianpaolo Minuti Innocenti, originating near Querceto, exhibit their wonderful watercolors in a double staff, that counts the inauguration of the “classic” with a snack of various rustic tasting, Saturday April 5, 2014 from 18.00.

Convivial tradition of taste and sharing of expressive tension, enliven the inauguration of “contention” between the strokes calibrated and “philosophical” by Gianpaolo Minuti Innocenti, and the immediate watercolor, built between light and shadow, by Leo Filippeschi.
The subjects are inspired by nature: still-life and landscapes, symbolists, enigmatic, built on the strength of composition and color from the invention of the score.

Painters bold as Pirimpi, aka Giorgio Betti, that fitting between bruschetta, fried polenta and tasty maccheronate, the artistic tradition of maritime-Livorno in the immediate rural hinterland, discovering talents then consolidated as Paoli, Bettarini, Millus and Scudiero.

The exhibition will be open to visitors until April 30, 2014, from 7 to 20 (closed Sundays). Info: Caffè Betti 0588/37002, e-mail
