Arte Immediata

With two more days left in Italy, my 9 month around the world self-imposed exile out of Melbourne is drawing nearer to its conclusion with my return looming in 10 days. After a month of soaking up this country, I am feeling a little melancholy about leaving it. Visiting Italy always seemed like a far away idea, something to do in a couple of years from now, but time kept moving along and now I have finally arrived. I’ve always identified myself as Italian and Australian even though I can’t really speak Italian. I hoped that when I had eventually made it to Italy, somehow I would magically unlock the power to speak fluently.  I imagined I would be like the ugly duckling realising that it was not a duck but a beautiful swan. It did not work out exactly as I had imagined, but I have loved every moment being here. A visit to Italy is worth every Euro. Art is immediate in this country.

About Michael Meneghetti

The little personal details can often be overlooked in the hustle of the city, but somewhere on the edge I always manage to stumble upon a little bit of visual gold! When I can, I make performances that explore a state of masculinity and curate video art for public spaces.
