Malcesine, a municipality near Verona on the shores of Lake Garda, once again takes the stage with a plethora of activities as the beautiful season arrives. One of these is Abilityart, an art show that the Associazione degli artisti che dipingono con la bocca o con il piede (Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists) designed and organized. Abilityart, which was formally unveiled on April 26th, will be on display at the Palazzo dei Capitani’s halls through Sunday, May 12th. From Wednesday through Sunday, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., the exhibition will be open. At the forefront of AbilityArt are three stories of resilience embodied by artists Simona Attori, Annalisa Paganini, and Nadir Fakhoury.

The AbilityArt association, formed in 1956, now represents over 1,000 artists worldwide who make art without the use of their hands owing to congenital or traumatic disabilities. Verona has a retail presence in the city center as well as a production plant that distributes around the country. The painters’ original works serve as the basis for artistic copies, and AbilityArt offers scholarships and new possibilities by encouraging art across all barriers.
