During this week’s episode of Newsbook.com.mt‘s online cultural programme ‘Take a Bow‘, Coryse Borg speaks to Italian set designer extraordinaire Romualdo Moretti about the retrospective exhibition XENI organised by Teatru Malta – a project encompassing the past decade of scenographic history across the Maltese Islands.
The exhibition, a first of its kind locally is curated by Moretti and boasts the work of set designers and visual artists Matthew Pandolfino, Austin Camilleri, Adrian Mamo, Claudio Apap, Andrew Borg Wirth and Moretti himself, among others.
XENI is an ambitious project that includes workshops on set design, set painting and set lighting along with two accompanying talks to increase awareness and knowledge on the subject of scenography.
The exhibition, which starts off Teatru Malta’s January to April 2020 season, is open until the 23rd February at Spazju Kreattiv in Valletta .
