description

From the different types of bread that have characterised Jewish celebrations for centuries, such as the unleavened bread of the Shabbat, to worldwide pita bread and to the bread produced in Matera, read is the symbol of encounters between cultures. This encounter will be made brighter by the lights of Chanukkah, the Jewish festival commemorating the liberation of Jerusalem from the occupation by Antiochus IV Epiphane in 165 BC.
Also known as the Festival of Lights, the celebration’s main symbolic moment is lighting the candles of the special nine-branched candelabrum. Artistic interpretations of the candelabrum, from a contemporary point of view, have resulted in a collection of more than two hundred lights. The collection stands out for its unique importance and value in Italy as well as for being the only one in the world focused on this specific theme. There are many donating artists, whose works will be exhibited at Fondazione Sassi, includind Emilio Isgrò, Arman, Renata Boero Medini, Claude Lalanne, Emanuele Luzzati, Giuseppe Maraniello, Aldo Mondino, Ugo Nespolo, David Palterer, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Valerio Anceschi, Wiliam Xerra, Peter Assman, Gianluigi Colin, Riccardo Dalisi, Luigi Del Monte, Giosetta Fioroni, Alì Hassoun, Marco Porta, Antonio Recalcati, Omar Ronda, Roger Selden and Roland Topor.

The exhibition ‘Lights of Chanukkah’, a collection fusing history, art and design is curated by Daria Carmi and is an integral part of the project ‘Festival La Terra del Pane’ (‘The Land of Bread Festival’). It is co-organised with Fondazione Arte, Storia e Cultura Ebraica a Casale Monferrato e nel Piemonte Orientale- Onlus (Foundation Jewish Art, History and Culture in Casale Monferrato and in Eastern Piemonte).
