One year after the ending of the creative bustle of the eleven artists protagonists of the sculpture camp, hosted by several grassy glades in the park of the resort of Singeorz-Bai, the works took the road of the public establishment sheltering temporarily through the exhibition halls according to a miraculous transient tradition by which the works of art carne to welcome the communities and net the other way round. It is net the worst episode of the life of the sculpture, but I assure you that it is one of the mosI expensive!
