An aesthetic and spiritual journey that touches the Romanesque places and the city of Ascoli Piceno, creating a suggestive atmosphere, in which the universal message of the "Apostle of the Gentiles" finds in the work of art a natural completion and a necessary reflection alternative. An informative and celebrative event to recount the figure of a saint, a man and a communicator of prodigious current events. In the churches of San Vincenzo and Anastasio and Santa Maria InterVineas will also be exhibited the works of the young people of the "Residenza d'artista", which took place in Ascoli Piceno from 14 to 24 April 2009 The artists, Italians and foreigners coming from the best Academies, through a ten-day job, lived in the fascinating "environment-workshop" of the Romanesque churches, pictorially reinterpreted the figure of Saint Paul, disclosing it to different readings, now more rigorous now conceptual, all of engaging effectiveness.
