Experience La Bella Italia With Davide Rampello's PANORAMA
Just this Monday (6/27/16), the infamous PANORAMA installation from la bella Italia arrived in NYC. Available all through the week, this exciting project straight from the cobbled streets of Milano (and seen for the first time in last year’s Milan Expo), is the epitome of life in Italy and all that it encompasses. From food to fashion, art, nature and history, creator Davide Rampello shows it all in this innovative cultural depiction.
The inspiring installation – which can be found in Vanderbilt Hall at Gran Central Terminal – tells a romantic story of extraordinary beauty and years of Italian excellence. The 13 minute video is all-engaging, and as you walk around the large domed space, the experience becomes more and more passionate. Unlike a traditional canvas painting, photograph or sculpture, this visually stimulating installation allows visitors to interact with and immerse themselves in the culture and lifestyle of Italy… without having to step a foot in foreign ground!
Having lived in Milan for a short while myself, I found a deep connection to PANORAMA. Simply admiring those gorgeous 360° views of the city, people, landscapes and vibrant culture made me remember the exceptional country that is l’Italia.
Take a look yourself, if not simply for the sake of art, then for the sake of experiencing something wonderful. Thank you, Davide Rampello, for introducing the New York audience to the wonder of the iconic Made in Italy.
