Presentazione dell’opera L’Approdo a Otranto

Presentate le opere dei giovani artisti che collaboreranno con Costas Varotsos alla realizzazione della tanto attesa opera “L’Approdo”.

Durante la presentazione delle opere dei giovani artisti di Ieri pomeriggio il sindaco d’Otranto, Luciano Cariddi ha spiegato il significato dell’opera e dell’iniziativa: “Otranto, la città più a est d’Italia, vive un rapporto di reciproca apertura con le genti che popolano l’area orientale dell’Adriatico. Le poche miglia di distanza tra le due coste hanno rappresentato da sempre una via di comunicazione e di contaminazione tra diverse civiltà, culture e religioni. Questa è certamente la maggiore ricchezza di una terra in cui la stratificazione della storia ha lasciato tracce chiaramente leggibili delle varie influenze esercitate da quanti, nei secoli, hanno trovato approdo sul nostro territorio. Un mare, il Canale d’Otranto, che non separa, ma unisce. Non una frontiera chiusa, ma una via d’acqua che facilita flussi in grado di alimentare costantemente il dialogo con l’altro.

Questo è il messaggio che il nostro mare ci consegna, consapevoli di un destino che accomuna tutti i popoli dell’area Mediterranea. Un destino che non sempre ci ha riservato giorni felici”.

Un senso di memoria, dunque, quello che l’artista vuole condividere tramite la metamorfosi della Kater I Rades, come spiegato da Cariddi: “Noi non vogliamo dimenticare, anzi, vogliamo ricordare quei momenti. Crediamo sia giusto coltivare la memoria. Il progetto è stato sposato e fatto proprio dalla città affinché resti sempre vivo il ricordo della tragedia del naufragio nel Venerdì santo 1997, in cui persero la vita in molti tra uomini, donne e bambini. Ma anche affinché resti alta l’attenzione sulle politiche da attuare per governare al meglio un problema che continua a far registrare, ancora oggi, tantissime vittime nei nostri mari.

L’Approdo potrà contribuire a rafforzare nella nostra comunità la naturale predisposizione all’accoglienza e alla solidarietà sempre dimostrata, e a non indurci a rifiutare mai quel primo abbraccio che ci viene chiesto da quanti, fuggendo da luoghi in cui non si riesce a condurre una vita libera e dignitosa, chiedono di poter avere una possibilità per guardare al futuro con fiducia e speranza”.
