Experience the captivating exhibition “Hope“, a story of explorers & dream catchers presented by the Valmont Foundation at Palazzo Bonvicini in Venice. Running until December 31, 2023, this immersive journey takes visitors on a remarkable adventure into the heart of Uganda’s lush nature and the world of the Habinyanja gorilla family.
Through a captivating film presented in a diary format, the exhibition tells the story of Valentine’s encounter with the gorillas, offering a glimpse into their world and the beauty of their natural habitat. It is a journey that transcends the boundaries of a cage and transports visitors to infinite landscapes, traditional rhythms, and syncopated dances.
For the past four years, the Valmont Foundation has been taking visitors on a series of exhibitions showcasing the beauty and diversity of different cultures. With “Hope“, they delve deeper into the impenetrable Bwindi Forest, where mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, and humans coexist. This exhibition offers a unique opportunity to discover the lesser-known culture of Uganda, with its vibrant colors, breathtaking landscapes, mesmerizing sounds, and rich traditions.
“Hope” symbolizes the aspirations of a young girl yearning for freedom and a father’s desire to see his daughter’s eyes light up with the spark that the captive gorilla lacked. It is a testament to the power of hope and the profound connection between humans and nature.
Step into the world of “Hope” at Palazzo Bonvicini and let yourself be transported to a place of wonder, inspiration, and a deeper appreciation for the beauty and diversity of our planet. This exhibition is a celebration of dreams, exploration, and the resilience of the human spirit. Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of this extraordinary experience.
