Atelier Sul Mare is a ‘hotel-museum’ with rooms designed by many talented artists specialized in contemporary art. The idea behind the project is to create a surreal world where the client dreams inside a museum and falls asleep in an artwork.
You’ve already heard of the Stendhal Syndrome? It’s what they call it when you get dizzy and faint in front of the amazing artworks in Uffizi Gallery, Florence. Dario Argento had interpreted this mental condition in the movie ‘The Stendhal Syndrome’ to create chaos and hell but relax, this time it’s all about paradise… in Sicilian beaches!
Why do we think you might faint? Because of the burning Sicilian sun? Possible. Delicious Sicilian food? Very probable. The relaxing atmosphere of picturesque beaches? Why not? But, let us share the real motive… You will be sleeping in and waking up in an art work. Literally!
It’s yet another Friday and we’re quite convinced that your city cannot offer anything more interesting than what Atelier Sul Mare offers you for the weekend. A get away in an art-hotel by the sea! Atelier Sul Mare is a ‘hotel-museum’ with rooms designed by many talented artists specialized in contemporary art. The idea behind the project is to create a surreal world where the client dreams inside a museum and falls asleep in an artwork.
There are many interesting rooms to choose from: The Mouth of Truth by Mario Ceroli, The Nest by Paolo Icaro, Energy by Maurizio Mocketti, The Shadow Line by Michele Canzonei and so on… But the one that took our breath is The Prophet Room designed and realized by Antonio Presti. It’s a tribute to Pier Paolo Pasolini, his works, his prophecies and his life. The room opens up with a door that has to be knocked down, in the literal sense. Then the rest is all dark yet when you open the window, it’s just the amazing Sicilian sea that welcomes you into paradise on earth.
So, here’s your to do list.
2. Pack your bags for the weekend
3. Surprise your lover
4. Spend the weekend in Sicily
5. Et voilà!
Ah, and let us know what you think of the experience on twitter.
