Sala Pietro Malatesta, Biblioteca, Cassino.

Lunedi 23 maggio 11.00 invitiamo tutti voi a Legato, incontrare con l'artista Regan Balzer e suo zio, soldato veterano Aubrey Balzer.

Legato is in the old picture theatre in Cassino, the building which now houses a Tribunale and a library as well as the Sala Pietro Malatesta, an exhibition space and conference room.

The building is also known as Arcoboleno, which means Rainbow, and was the name of the picture theatre. Visitors used to the subdued palettes of the Italian artists might well think that they have walked under a rainbow when they enter the space these days. Collectively the paintings in Legato bring light, brightness and energy into the space. A different culture shines through.

Legato has already hosted many interested visitors and at least one very interested gathering of professional people meeting in the space. Monday is the official "launch" where you can meet with artists Lois Wine, Kay de Lautour and Regan Balzer, and Regan's uncle Aubrey Balzer who is a veteran who served with the Maori Battalion in Cassino.
