Back to Nature. Arte Contemporanea a Villa Borghese

15 September – 13 December 2020


Roma, Villa Borghese


Curated by Costantino D’Orazio

The work by Mario Merz Untitled, 1988 is part of  Back to Nature. Arte Contemporanea a Villa Borghese, curated by Costantino D’Orazio.

The project is conceived as a festival characterized by contemporary art installations that inhabit the park and a series of performances/initiatives that animate the individual works, focusing on particular areas of the villa.

Although no theme connects the works one to the other, the goal is to offer a visual and emotional experience that arises from the spectacular creations, able to integrate, in size and grandeur, with the monumental vegetation of the spaces.

The works that weave a meaningful relationship with nature and stimulate an innovative reading of the relationship between human beings and the environment will be enhanced. Various artists, including Mario Merz, represented by the Merz Foundation, Mimmo Paladino, Nico Vascellari, Grazia Toderi, Davide Rivalta, Edoardo Tresoldi, Benedetto Pietromarchi, Andreco and with the collaboration of the Aracne Academy are involved in this project.
