An unmissable appointment to investigate and reflect on the “profound meaning of our being and of our time“. A four-day dating, debates, meditations And readingsled by writers, philosophers, theologians and artists, whose purpose is not to give answers, but to suggest questions. Of arouse curiosity. Of invite reflectionstarting from the multiplicity of perspectives offered. Each year one element acts as North Star around which the various reflections revolve: after the latest editions dedicated to Desiderio, Breath and Night, this year the suggestion that inspires Turin Spirituality 2022 and it will be fil rouge of all encounters is Skin: the deep surface.
The skin understood as border but also how theshold: it separates the inside from the outside, but at the same time it is the place where what is intimate and internal emerges on the surface and meets the outside world, as he tells Armando Buonaiutocurator of Torino Spirituality 2022, in the editorial that motivates and presents the theme of this edition.
“There is nothing deeper than the skin”, said Paul Valèry, and in fact the skin becomes somehow map of our route, individual memory: wrinkles, moles, tattoos and scars are the signs that life has left on this great one of ours epidermal archive, are marks of our singularity and witnesses of our experience. Not by chance the image chosen to represent this edition is a lava rock inlaid with small remnants of flowers: “traces of an improbable and poetic contact, lasting like flowers crystallized forever in stone“.
This eighteenth edition will therefore revolve around the theme of skin, declined in different manifestations: from the human epidermis and its color to the borders in an extended sense; from the written page to the skin in art; from the faux leather of the screens touch to the human sense of touch.
