“Italia Contemporanea” (Contemporary Italy) is a new way of discovering contemporary art in Italy, covering the most representative works, the most famous museums as well as the most secretive or elusive spaces – from redeveloped former factories to open-air museums. A thematic journey throughout Italy, giving a voice, episode after episode, to artists, curators and art historians, among the most renowned on the current art scene.
Four episodes forming an ideal overview of locations, works, images and ideas:
- “Metropoli” (Metropolis), on air on May 8th. An episode dedicated exclusively to the museums of major cities, true temples of contemporary art.
- “Open Air“, on air on May 15th. Italy is full of open-air museums: in squares, gardens, cities and parks. To get to know them is to be immersed in spaces that are sometimes hidden, sometimes in plain sight.
- “Vecchio e nuovo” (Old and New), on air on May 22nd. Old buildings, former factories, archaeological sites that now house works of art: in this episode we will discover contemporary art in historical or renovated locations.
- “Off road“, on air on May 29th. Places that are inaccessible or isolated, spectacular and sublime, or simply off the beaten track: discover art where you don’t expect it.
