Fuocoapaesaggio is the collective contemporary art exhibit, curated by Dolomiti Contemporanee, which will be inaugurated on Saturday, May the 20th,  and that sets out to kickstart a new life for the Monte Ricco Fort.

The Monte Ricco Fort is a stunning example of wartime architecture built on the tail end of the XIX century on the hill overlooking Pieve di Cadore (BL), birthplace of Titian.
Now, after a ten-year-long restoration process, carried out by the Municipality of Pieve di Cadore thanks to the fundamental presence of the Cariverona Foundation, the handling of the Fort will be overseen by two significant local authorities (The Foundation for the Study of Titian and the Cadore and the non-profit Eyeglasses Museum Foundation) and, finally, for the first time since its inception, it will be open to the public, with the exhibit Fuocoalpaesaggio.
Here a brief overview of the history of the Fort and of the path that has lead to its re-opening today.

Thus we begin to make use of the Fort, bringing focus on its worth.
On its history, on its present, on its future.
From the inside.
Ever since 2011, Dolomiti Contemporanee does exactly that: it efficiently ponders, through a series of activation practices, on the fate of an asset and of the Heritage that lays, almost like lodes, scattered about the Landscape.
A Landscape that isn’t there, and never will be there, if one does nothing but gazing upon it, waiting, and isn’t able to do it, to act upon it.
The sites we gave new light to have been many, over the years.
Now, it’s Monte Ricco‘s turn.
Fuocoapaesaggio, fire to the landscape, already spreading.
Some of the artists have already taken action, and are working inside the Fort.
In Pieve di Cadore, thanks to the Municipality and the Titian Foundation, an Artist’s Residency has already been set up, finding its home in the House of the Mountain and Volunteerism: it’s from there that we move towards the Landscape, ready to ignite it. The post has been established, every day its gravity grows stronger and stronger, and the first grips are being secured: the town responds, threads are woven.

This is what Fuocoapaesaggio is about: igniting the Landscape, which is the living land of humans, a matrix that needs to be set ablaze to release its power, heat, smell, smoke and skies.
In Italian, the word “fuoco” has two different meanings: “far fuoco” means “make a fire”, but “mettere a fuoco” means to “focus”, to “sharpen”, which implies looking closely, which in turn entails doing, rather than waiting.
Fuocoapaesagio sets out to burn, too, to char, to eliminate the following: every lethargic attitude, and its home, the apathetic sidelines, where the spectators watch, already sated,  sated from the get-go, because they weren’t hungry in the first place, lacking fire, lacking a spark.
Spectators are never needed: they are a wet log. What is needed is eyes full of embers, hot and volatile.
There are many other fires on fuocoapaesaggio, powerful fires of the spirit, war fires – and even fires of peace, perhaps (the missiles of the quiet, clear, ignited smile): we will see them flare up, for the whole summer, in the open Fort, which is not a raft.

Fuocoapaesaggio will also kickstart Tiziano Contemporaneo (Eng.: Contemporary Titian): a new project by DC, that begins here, and will then develop during the next few years.
Why here?
Titian was born in Pieve di Cadore.
In his famous letter to Filippo di Spagna of October the 11th 1552, perhaps the first mention of the term “landscape” is found. Commenting it, Beroqui says that the painting (which is indeed a landscape) would be “set aflame in 1734″ in Madrid.
Would you look at that.
Fire is wise: if it weren’t Sun, it would be night. Says Heraclitus.
Some of the artists of fuocoapaesaggio, then, will come and measure up to the supreme and terrific master.
And they can do it. It must be done, and they can do it.

How to get there:
The Monte Ricco Fort is found on top of a hill overlooking Pieve di Cadore and, during the exhibit’s opening period, will only be reachable by foot, with a brief and extraordinary five minute stroll, which begins from the parking lot of Piazza Martiri della Libertà, in front of the Eyeglasses Museum, and only a few meters away from the birthplace of Titian.

For Saturday May the 20th’s event, a shuttle service will be available. The buses will depart from the parking lot of Piazza Martiri della Libertà, Pieve di Cadore. It will however still be possible to reach the Fort by foot, if so desired.
