The logo of IMMAGINE & POESIA was created by Gianpiero Actis and Lidia Chiarelli in 2007 when the Movement was launched at Alfa Theater, Turin Italy.
In the logo there are segments of bright colors (blue, green, yellow, red, white), colors that convey positive feelings: at the center is red, the color of vital energy.
The use of red helps to fight passive attitudes by awakening creativity.
The words IMMAGINE and POESIA are well balanced in the left and in the right section of the logo; a paperclip with the logogram & appears in the middle in order to point out the
Synergy of Art and Poetry
with the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts.
The idea of the Movement started in 2006 in Torino (Italy) with the meeting of
Aeronwy Thomas thought that
Poetry and figurative art could lead to moments of Cross Fertilization
a few months later they wrote the MANIFESTO of the MOVEMENT (IMAGE & POETRY) and on November 9 2007 IMMAGINE & POESIA was officially launched.
IMMAGINE&POESIA (IMAGE&POETRY) is an international artistic literary movement, founded at Alfa Teatro in Torino, Italy, in 2007. Since its inception, IMMAGINE&POESIA has continued to grow. Hundreds of poets and artists from all over the world have participated, and the movement now reaches international audiences.
The MANIFESTO of the movement consists of 10 points and has been translated into 30 languages. The fourth point suggests moments of cross fertilization for artists and poets in order to support the thesis that a literary text may inspire the creation of a figurative art work and vice versa: the result is a new and complete form of art.
