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.

Website from 5 October 2020  www.italics.art 

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.

Driven by the desire to build a network based on collaboration and shared experience, nine gallerists – Lorenzo Fiaschi (Galleria Continua) and Pepi Marchetti Franchi (Gagosian) with Alfonso Artiaco, Ludovica Barbieri (Massimo De Carlo), Massimo Di Carlo (Galleria dello Scudo), Francesca Kaufmann (kaufmann repetto)Massimo Minini, Franco Noero and Carlo Orsi – invited fiftyfour of the best Italian galleries in contemporary, modern and ancient art to take part in the project, uniting them in a genuine consortium. It is the first time that a group of sixtythree galleries from all over Italy, able to represent the art of all times at the highest level – from the ancient to the emerging one, has come together to institute a system around a long-term project. The new body will contribute to artistic discourse across Italy’s cultural infrastructure including institutions, museums, fairs and biennials.

The gallerists will present Italy, exploring some of the least known aspects of its cultural heritage and at the same time, drawing attention to refined facets of Italian production. In doing so, it will offer an unprecedented view of a lifestyle that is revered globally.
