MAXXI B.A.S.E. meeting room – admittance free
What do those who work with words think about those working with images? Four writers meet four artists at MAXXI to find out. From 16 May to 6 June Maria Pia Ammirati, Arnaldo Colasanti, Maria Luisa Spaziani and Valentino Zaichen will be featuring in Writers at MAXXI for art, a series of encounters, curated by Stefano Zecchi and moderated by the RAI Radio Uno journalist Paolo Notari, in which intellectuals not directly or “professionally” involved in the world of the visual arts reveal to the public their idea of art, each presenting an artist with whom they will share the stage.
In the second encounter Maria Pia Ammirati, a RAI director, writer and journalist, will be introducing the museum public to the artist Sergio Fermariello whose research starts out from the revisitation of models and family memories and extends to universal archetypes in the reinterpretation of a collective memory.
