HOTEL MO.MA., AN EXHIBITION BY MONICA MARIONI
Hotel Mo.Ma. is an exhibition by Monica Marioni which is a dialogue between content and container, between the works on display and the exhibition area.
The place chosen for this dialogue is Casa Gallo, at Palazzo Brusarosco-Zaccaria in Vicenza, one of the many amazing works designed by architect Carlo Scarpa.
This building that was once the residence of the Gallo family, who commissioned Scarpa the renovation project in the early 1960s, becomes the home, or rather, the temporary hotel of Monica Marioni’s works.
And that’s how the container becomes the scenery, but also the protagonist of an exhibition where also visitors are an active part of the project.

GALLERIA VITTORIA, ROME: AN INTERVIEW WITH TIZIANO M. TODI
The Galleria Vittoria located in Via Margutta in Rome is one of those places which have livened up the Roman cultural environment since the 1970s.
The first exhibition was that of Pericle Fazzini, author of the bronze sculpture depicting the “Resurrection of Christ” (1977) which is now on display in the Sala Nervi in the Vatican, and since then the Galleria Vittoria has never stopped, making room for major Italian and foreign artists.
I interviewed Tiziano M. Todi who represents the third generation of the Galleria Vittoria and who really began moving his first steps in the artistic environment when he was a child.
Here is what he told me about the past and the future of the Galleria Vittoria.
