PRESS RELEASE The Ghost Bus project 2015
“The Ghost Bus” is coming soon in the Land Of Robin Hood… A new art and visual project by Roberto Alborghetti – Italian journalist, writer and visual artist – is scheduled in Beeston-Nottingham (UK) for January-March 2015 in collaboration with Bartons Plc and its owner Simon Barton, ACT Group (Art-Culture-Tourism) and its founder Marysia Zipser. The Italian visual artist and journalist stayed in Beeston last October, spending some hours in Bartons huge garage of vintage buses and cars.
He was really impressed by one of the oldest buses, the so called “The Ghost Bus”, a piece of history of English public transport: it’s a URR 865 vehicle AEC Reliance made in 1956! Simon Barton told to Roberto Alborghetti that a vehicle-sister of the “ghost bus” was documented in 1959 on a wonderful and unmissable film telling a beautiful journey through Italy by a group of English ladies and gentlemen. It was another great reason to establish a collaboration building a bridge between the Land of Robin Hood and Italy…
So, Roberto began to work and create on the “ghost bus” for his “Lacer/actions” project concerning realistic images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial tokens and materials. The project – preceded by 3 trailers and a flyer – will consist of two short movies for public performances and video shows, a cards series (reproducing 16 artworks selected from the 109 ones that has been created) and a collection of canvases.
The movies premiere will take place on MARCH 27, 2015 at Bartons Plc in Beeston. Special previews, news and pictures are yet available on the main social networks (Word Press, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Google+).
The “Ghost Bus” project synopsis tells: “There’s an old bus at Bartons garage, in the ancient land of Robin Hood. After thousands of miles, it’s taking a rest, tired and rusty. But if we look closely, it continues to tell us the colours of its days along the dusty roads of the world …”.

9 pensieri riguardo “THE GHOST BUS”
Vorrei sapere qualcosa in più su questa iniziativa, perché francamente non ho compreso bene…Le opere mi appaiono molto belle, anche se preferisco nettamente i colori freddi del verde e del blu…Le tinte rosse mi sembrano colori da mattatoio, mio incubo degli incubi…
E’ un po’ un’impresa spiegare in poche righe questo evento, che fa parte del mio progetto “Lacer/azioni”, che riguarda immagini realistiche, non fatte con pennelli o con il computer… A questo link può trovare qualche notizia in italiano, ma se cerca su Internet (da Facebook a Twetter) ci sono già oltre 200.000 voci sull’argomento, cosa innovativa per l’Italia… Grazie e cordiali saluti. R.A.
Roberto, you continue to amaze. Is it not interesting that if we look closely, the most beautiful images emerge from that which we think we no longer have use for. I can only imagine the stories that bus could tell. I do hope that the film will eventually be available online, as there is just too much water between me and the UK for me to be able to attend. I’m sure it will be a huge success!
Thank you so much Wendy for your kind comment! Yes, the premiere was really a special event. I’ll be posting something about it very soon! Have a great day!
