Giulio Vesprini (°1980, Civitanova Marche, Italy) is an urban artist and graphic designer who works in a variety of media. He has attended two major schools: Accademy of Fine Arts and the Departement of Architecture. With a subtle minimalistic approach, Vesprini focuses on the idea of ‘public space’ and more specifically on spaces where graphic and wall can be united at any given moment: the non-private space and space that is economically uninteresting can become utility space. His artworks are often about contact with architecture and graphic elements.

By applying abstraction, he creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. His practice provides some graphic tools with a minimalist approach in the world of art: these meticulously planned works resound and resonate with images culled from the fantastical realm of imagination.

In a search for new methods to ‘read the city’, he creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and attitude towards conceptual and minimal art can be found. His work doesn’t reference at recognisable form but Vesprini focuses the results in one word, the word that he love: “Archigrafia” where he deconstructed this concept to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. He has obtained various awards and publications related to his graphic design, wall paint and illustration work.



Almonte & Molina – A Guitar Duologue

We are happy to introduce the Latin Jazz part of our lineup. This year the Italian Fusion Festival presents Almonte and Molina – A Guitar Duologue.

Growing up in the hothouse of Latin-American rhythms and styles, and schooled in the art of jazz and improvisation, the duo explores and develops time-honoured songs and original compositions in a unique and innovative style. Rodrigo Almonte (Peru) and Orlando Molina (Chile/Venezuela) are both guitarists and composers, and they have combined forces to create an artistic work that blends elements of Jazz and Latin-American Music which welcome the listener to experience the duo’s musical friendship.

Originally from Venezuela, Orlando Molina has gained recognition not only for his mastery as a guitarist and composer but also for his versatility as a musician. He has been invited to perform for important public figures such as Mr. President Michael D. Higgins (Ireland), Wynton Marsalis, David Bisbal, Ruben Blades, Conor McGregor among others. In addition, Orlando has performed, toured and recorded with artists such as Andreas Morricone, Gustavo Dudamel, Ronan Guilfoyle, Miguel Siso, Phil Ware, Marie Séférian, David Pabón, Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, Guaco, Orquesta Sinfónica de Venezuela, Chino y Nacho, Oscarcito, Andy Duran, Simón Bolívar Big Band, ‘El Sistema Nacional de Orquestas Sinfónicas de Venezuela’, to name just a few.

With his South American and contemporary jazz influences, Almonte brings a unique approach to music. Rodrigo’s latest album ‘Distancia’ is already available on all digital platforms.
