Il Grande Gioco,  Art forms in Italy 1947 �" 1989 (Milano, Italy) a projet by Luigi Cavadini, Giacinto Di Pietrantonio e Bruno Corà, promoted by Regione Lombardia.
Three major exhibitions have been created to describe and interpret forty years in the history of Italy. With art as its focal point, artistic expressions are positioned within the cultural and socio-economic context of these decades that proved to be crucial for Italy: those from 1947 to 1989, from shortly after World War II until the fall of the Berlin Wall. These were the years of postwar reconstruction that followed one of the most devastating wars ever, and also the years of the celebrated “miracolo italiano”, the years of protest and terrorism, and the complex years of the Cold War. They are nonetheless fundamental to understanding Italy today, in terms of economics, politic and even, in its own way, art.

Gli anni della dolce vita.  Photographs by Marcello Geppetti  and  Arturo Zavattini (Torino, Italy) Museo del Cinema di Torino, Mole Antonelliana. Fifty years from the creation of Fellini`s masterpiece, comes an exhibition which reconstructs the climate of Dolce Vita, restoring a precious record of a film and a era that were for many reasons, absolutely unforgettable: shots are shown of one the many paparazzi, Marcello Geppetti, who nightly roamed Rome`s Via Veneto and thereabouts during those famous years that were named after the film. The exhibition layout is completed by a selection of portraits of the stars of the film, "snatched" during pauses on the set of La Dolce Vita by cameraman Arturo Zavattini.

 Islands never found. (Genova, Italy �" Thessaloniki, Greece �" Saint Etienne, France) Palazzo Ducale. Leading, internationally renowned contemporary artists interpret their very own islands never found through a series of extraordinary works �" some never before exhibited. Installations, videos, photographs, sculptures, drawings and paintings take the visitor on a journey, where each island �" a metaphor for life and constant exploration �" raises questions and doubts about the very meaning of life. The artists taking part in this project have embarked on a journey through uncharted waters, on a never-ending voyage, continually haunted by the possibility that the destination might in fact be a non-place, a utopia, a simple territory of desire �" and therefore beyond reach. Curated by Lóránd Hegyi, General Director of the Musée d’Art Moderne in St-Etienne �" a museum which houses the second largest collection of modern art in France �" and by Katarina Koskina, President of the Thessaloniki State Museum of Contemporary Art, the exhibition will be calling at other celebrated ports in France and Greece.


Exential Experience (Palermo, Italy) Palazzo Riso. Curated by Lorand Hegyi. More than twenty of the greatest artists of the contemporary scene �" among them: Gilbert&George, Gloria Friedmann, William Kentridge, Anselm Kiefer, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Paolo Grassino, Danica Daki?, Kevin Francis Gray, Koji Tanada, Lee Ufan, Roman Opalka, Jan Fabre ,Giuseppe Penone, Gunther Uecker, Kimsooja �" and presents three new productions, commissioned by Riso, by Dennis Oppenheim, Pedro Cabrita Reis and Richard Nonas. These three commissioned works address fundamental ethical questions relating to the concept of “creation,” the idea of the artist’s responsibility, and the ability to involve the spectator in the artist’s creative journey of interpreting the great existential themes �" the passage of time, death, solitude, identity, love �" through signs, symbols and metaphors, which are both simple and complex at the same time.

Magnificence and Project �" Five Hundred Years of Great Italian Furniture Side by Side (Milano, Italy) Palazzo Reale  In collaboration with  COSMIT  Eventi and Comune di Milano the event consisted of a recognition/comparison of the very roots of the Italian tradition of Master Craftsmanship, the complexity and variety of which remained a constant for over five centuries.

For the first time, works inspired by the genius of such top classical painters, sculptors and architects as Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Filippo Juvarra, Pelagio Pelagi, Filippo Parodi, Andrea Fantoni and Francesco Pianta, for example, will sit side by side with works by great contemporary masters such as, for example, Ico Parisi, Gino Sarfatti, Gio Ponti, Andrea Branzi, Angelo Mangiarotti, Alberto Meda, Denis Santachiara, Claudio Salocchi, Alessandro Mendini, Gabetti e Isola, Gaetano Pesce, Ettore Sottsass, Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Eugenio Gerli, Osvaldo Borsani, Achille Castiglioni, Joe Colombo, Marco Zanuso, Antonia Astori.
