Global Gathering to descend on Nottinghamshire for Italian art exhibition


A global gathering is set to descend on the Nottinghamshire town of Beeston this March as international artists and film-makers make a pilgrimage for a number of stimulating art and cultural events.

A recently opened arts and heritage hub known as The Hive in will be running the Italy Arts and Photography Exhibition from March 9 to 24, featuring works by award-winning professional journalist, author and visual artist, Roberto Alborghetti.

Roberto is a prolific author and visual artist from Bergamo and this visit will be his fifth to Beeston in less than four years. His biographical volumes on Pope Francis have been published into multiple languages across the world.

During his visit, Roberto will be premiering his latest film ‘Land Rover Mapping’, alongside his previous successful short films of The Ghost Bus, on March 9th 7-9pm at Chilwell Arts Theatre.

The original film is about a bus which was rescued from a Suffolk field and is now kept in Bartons garage in Beeston, which is where Roberto discovered it. It gave him the inspiration for his film which has earned him a strong following.

The gallery also features work from Canadian artist Rand Heidinger, whose work can be found in private, corporate and public collections throughout Canada and the United States as well in HRH Prince Phillip’s collection of the ‘Arts for Nature Trust’ in Buckingham Palace.

Also for the first time on global public view, will be thirteen artworks by Florentine painter Giuseppe Capineri (1923-1994).

The exhibitions are organised by regional arts and heritage curator Marysia Zipser, who said: “Since it opened it has become a sanctuary for people to talk about art and heritage, and all of the businesses based here work well as a team.

“We’re looking forward to the events in March and receiving our international visitors.”

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Language is certainly one of our best creations. Without it, it would be difficult for us to coexist, establish communities and share feelings. Language makes it all easier and helps us work together and understand one another. Throughout history people always felt the need to find one universal language for all. Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
