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 first encounter, Arnaldo Colasanti, a university lecturer, television journalist and literary critic will be introducing the museum public to the artist Giuseppe Salvatori. Together with Paolo Notari, the MAXXI public will be invited to explore the work of the winner of the Grinzane Cavour Prize 2002 and that of the Rome-based artist whose works are inspired by literature.
