Experimental curatorial and talent scouting projects


A comparison space curated by Paola Tognon who, with a focus on Italian art, proposes itself as an updating and deepening of research and the enhancement of contemporary artistic experiences.


Section dedicated to the approach to contemporary art by the youngest people, with workshops for children aged 4 to 12, in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts in Verona.

Io, l’opera e tu (I, the Artwork and You)

As an evolution of the “atupertu” format, “Io, l’opera e tu” offers the public the opportunity to meet up with the artists exhibited at the fair, in their respective galleries. The starting point is a specific work of art, capable of “speaking to the public” also through the words of the artist and of the curator. The artists / artworks must be shortlisted by 20 July. The calendar of meetings is defined by mid-September.

Free Stage

From an idea by Adriana Polveroni, an exhibition project by young artists who are not promoted by any gallery, but presented by artists of the previous generation in a close dialogue with each other, beyond the contribution of curatorial figures. Tutor and mentor for 2018 Adrian Paci.

Primo Amore (First love)

A platform that aims at directing the public towards high-quality artworks with affordable price tags, i.e. within 5,000 euros, to kindle the interest of new collectors. A further incentive for grassroots collectors with limited financial resources, guided towards works capable of igniting that spark of “first love”. Low cost but precious works, authentic “gems”.

Critical Collecting

Format conceived and edited by Antonio Grulli, with ten young independent art critics who compose a text that analyzes the collection or the way of collecting as many collectors, with particular attention to the Italian market. A way to be focused on the art critic, fundamental figure for the correct and healthy functioning of the art world.
