Cancelli - Foligno

Cancelli is a remote hill territory in the Municipality of Foligno. The territory has been managed since the middle age as a commons (comunanza agraria). Here the Manufatto in Situ project has developed a ten years program of artist residences and summer schools. Despite its remoteness, since the 80’s the area of Cancelli attracted art interventions in relation to nature and landscape, involving artists such as Sol LeWitt, Ann &Patrick Poirier.
