Art and Silence are incompatible.
Like water and oil.

Treating honestly unlawful topics or unlawfully honest topics is, anyway, evacuating silence.
Existence is a rarefying process which tends to the juncture. It is consequential to line up.
Art, though having the rights, should not support crypto-languages, but spread its messages through sharp and tidy positions. For this edition, R A I D speaks and acts under the sunlight. Under the Sicily’s one.

Apologia of the escaping from the twilight, from the phonetic void, from the apnea, from the sand, from the closet, from the lack of ethic taste, in its fifth edition, R A I D will tan of legality.
In Corleone.

Visual Arts, Literature, Music and Architecture cooperate to the location launch.
The artists’ practice will be enjoyed via live streaming: it will be entrusted to the eye of three film directors.
They will offer a total and intimate fruition.
Sunday, June 17, R A I D will take place in a building confiscated to mafia (Lo Bue family) and ready to be given back to the community and to light, re-acting its dynamics of the offering.

Lo Bue’s building has three floors and it’s split vertically into two specular parts.
The dividing partition is a cut, the paradigm of the Wall. No osmosis.
R A I D will work in the confiscated part, on the right side.
On the other side the non-jailed Lo Bue’s relatives.
Our official partners are the City of Corleone, the Institutions, Don Ciotti’s Libera and CIDMA, Museum of Legacy.
Behind us everyone who sacrificed their lives, those without whom history would have been worst, in front of whom we are just colorful dust.
R A I D won’t deal with the mafia topic, but with redemption, dawn and future.
R A I D aims to challenge the dark mythology linked to Corleone, through its artistic and choral action.
R A I D , as always, has complete authority in the building.

After R A I D, the building will become a public stronghold, containing offices, opern to visitors everyday.
