BEAUTY SEEKERS 2
In the night the signs of light
The CERCATORI DI BELLEZZA calendar initiative is in its second edition and we hope that with time it will become an eagerly awaited object, indispensable in our homes, with the presence of Italian and international artists, united by the same quest for the beautiful, the good, the true...for being in its purest nature.
This initiative is in support of Progetto San Gaetano, a project to redevelop the parish area of San Gaetano Thiene, in the village of the same name in the municipality of Caorle, in the province of Venice. A small reality, for years now, entrusted to the care of the monks and nuns of the nearby monastery of Marango di Caorle. The desire is to create an alternative way of inhabiting the world, with respect for creation, an example of a hospitable society, a place of fraternity and inclusion. Through the dissemination of culture, the accompaniment of young and old, the practice of hospitality, the promotion of small work activities and the acquisition of arts and crafts, it would like to set a sign of hope at the service of families and the territory. This is the soul of this ambitious project.
Pope Francis states that: «Today, the Church does not only need to speak out loud the Truth; it always needs men and women who transform into concrete goods what the pastors preach and theologians teach; it also needs to set an example for the people of our time, who need to discover that they are not just 'takers' of good, but 'entrepreneurs' of charity».
We would like to thank all those who, with their artistic contribution, have participated in this small but significant initiative, donating part of their person, so that it may become a shared patrimony and all may be enriched in humanity.
