We Love Art. Vision and Creativity Made in Italy
Opening hours: 26.08.- 25.09.2022
An exhibition of the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Berlino (IIC).
The exhibition includes works by Benni Bosetto, Giulia Cenci, Tomaso De Luca, Lulù Nuti, Amedeo Polazzo, Alice Ronchi, Giulio Saverio Rossi and Namsal Siedlecki.
‘We Love Art‘ is an innovative project by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, which, in partnership with the Fondazione Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (CDP), has created an initiative that combines both creativity and business, art and Made in Italy.
For the first time, the Ministry has thus turned to businesses to establish a partnership in the field of the production of contemporary works of art, in order to support young Italian artists affected by the consequences of the Covid-19 crisis, enhancing their talent and increasing their visibility abroad.
Curators Ludovico Pratesi and Marco Bassan selected 8 artists under-35, who developed an original art project for ‘We Love Art’. In the process, each artist was supported by Fondazione CDP and could benefit of the collaboration of one of the 8 companies, owned by Cassa Depositi e Prestiti: Open Fiber, Terna, Eni, Webuild, CDP Immobiliare, Snam, Tim, Ansaldo Energia.
The works produced, using mediums ranging from sculpture, to painting and photography, will be exhibited abroad in South Korea, China, the United States, Mexico, Egypt and Germany.
At the end of the exhibition, the eight works of art will become part of the permanent collection of the Fondazione Cassa Depositi e Prestiti.
