Bagliato sews an exhibition, Mariantonietta plays the thread to the child-memory of the Papagna so close to our narcotized by force time, where you cannot go out for fear and all you have to do is sleep and sleep in the hope of waking up with the right kiss worthy of a princess. Like women in the South put the poppies in their potion to placate the infants crying, for her exhibition Bagliato lines up all the opiate blooms, the fatal daze of a millennial dirge, to let us lay down happy and dreamy.

Mariantonietta Bagliato (1985) lives between Bari and Prague. Her artistic research is influenced by an imaginary that draws its origins from theatre, a work characterized by the use of fabrics that the artist transforms into sculptures, installations and sewn drawings. She attended the Bari Academy of Fine Arts and currently she is Professor of Graphic and Pictorial Art. She also cooperated as outside expert with the Rome Academy of Fine Arts. She participated to several solo and group exhibitions and art projects at national and international level even obtaining several awards for his work (Rome Federculture Award 2012; Venice Art Award 2011; National Arts Award 2010; Ministry of University and Research, Naples; the Pinacoteca Agnelli Award, Artissima, Turin).
