Corsica, pirate island? The exhibition proposed at the Bastia museum, Mare furioso, pirates and corsairs in the Mediterranean (XVIe-XIXe centuries) is an opportunity to discover the role of the island in the history of piracy: “victim for centuries of raids by pirates and Barbary corsairs, but also an actress by generating a good number of corsairs in the service of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, the Paolian navy or even Malta and renegades under the banner of the North African regencies.

Closed on November 1, the Bastia museum is open Tuesday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

From photographic work by Patrick Jallageas light is the subject, the object, the matter.

Under this harsh and raw southern light, his series of photographs of the citadel of Calvi offers an aesthetic view where the lines of force of the ramparts are clearly drawn in the play of shadows and sun.

The light hits the walls of the citadel of Calvi unceremoniously. It reveals the lines of force of this singular architecture. The shadows underline the conceptual radicalism of the building. The contrast peaks. If the modeling disappears in this space, it is possible to find the nuance in time of a change of state when, for example, the profane and the sacred intersect.” Patrick Jallageas, photographer.

The exhibition, entitled “Citadel in Lights” is visible every Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Center for the conservation and restoration of the movable heritage of Corsica Fort Charlet de Calvi.
