Italy from the viewpoint of its gallerists: the new digital platform to discover Italian excellence.
Out of the vision of nine of the most influential galleries in Italy, comes a first-hand guide to the country’s art, culture and contemporary lifestyle, written and illustrated by the gallerists themselves.
ITALICS Art and Landscape is an all-digital editorial platform that will spotlight the profound cultural experiences cultivated on the Italian territory by its most celebrated gallerists, exploring the extraordinary art heritage of the country. Through insightful storytelling and eye-catching photography, readers will be offered a sense of discovery and unrivalled access to explore Italy.
The project stems from an idea Lorenzo Fiaschi (Galleria Continua) and Pepi Marchetti Franchi (Gagosian) had in April 2020 at the height of lockdown during the pandemic: to develop a new mode of cultural and human encounter between lovers of art in step with today’s digital age. A workgroup rapidly formed around the concept, made up of Alfonso Artiaco, Ludovica Barbieri (Massimo De Carlo), Massimo Di Carlo (Galleria dello Scudo), Francesca Kaufmann (kaufmann repetto), Massimo Minini, Franco Noero and Carlo Orsi, in addition to Fiaschi and Marchetti Franchi.
