Palazzo Chigi in Ariccia hosts modern and contemporary art

An exhibition of 27 galleries from all over Europe (Austria, France, Germany, Gran Bretagna, Holland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, and naturally, Italy) and USA and an equal number of artists from other parts of the world will be held in Palazzo Chigi, Ariccia on May 27 and 28. Ariccia is a town in the hills of the Castelli Romani, 18 km from Rome.
The opportunity is provided by GRANPALAZZO's third edition. The project showcases the work of artists from all over the world and is supported by international galleries that apply a strong curatorial approach to their practice and strive to create the conditions necessary to establish an alternative and independent market outside the trends dictated by specific moments in history.

Most of artists were born in the 70s and 80s in Italy, Brazil, France, Germany, Great Britain, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Spain, United States, Sweden, not to mention masters like Tomaso Binga, the stage name adopted by Bianca Pucciarelli Menna, born in Salerno in 1931.

Palazzo Chigi in Ariccia is a lavish Baroque residence embellished by the architect and sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini and his young student, Carlo Fontana, since 1999, has served as the seat of the Roman Baroque Museum, featuring works belonging to the Chigi, Bean, and Koelliker collections.

In this context, GRANPALAZZO will be held in 1000 sq m on both the top floor and mezzanine. Solo projects presented by the galleries invited will be presented on this occasion interacting in a fusion of the modern and contemporary offering an intriguing view of the latest developments and most experimental projects on the international art scene today.
