RUFA is partner of Giovani Creativi

For the second consecutive year RUFA – Rome University of Fine Arts is cultural partner of Giovani Creativi. The project, curated by the director of TWM Factory Nicola Brucoli and Carlo Settimio Battisti and realized in collaboration with MiBACT – Ministero per i beni e le attività culturali e per il turismo and with the Museo Nazionale Romano, is aimed at enhancing the skills and competences of young artists, professionals and entrepreneurs of the latest generation, through the exhibition of portraits of 12 Italian talents under 30, who have distinguished themselves for their communicative sensitivity in their artistic and professional categories: Federica Sofia Zambeletti / Kozarch (Architecture), Giovanni Vetere (Art), Alain Parroni (Cinema), Burro Studio (Visual Communication), Michele Lazzarini (Kitchen), Susanna Salvi (Dance), Antonio Facco (Design), Sofia Podestà (Photography), Davide Dattoli (Entrepreneurship), Marzia Sicignano (Literature), Davide Gallo / PROGRAMME (Fashion), Yakamoto Kotzuga / Giacomo Mazzucato (Music).

The photographs of the 12 creatives were taken by Riccardo Ferranti, RUFA graduate, in the most significant archaeological sites of the capital (Markets of Trajan – Museum of the Imperial Forums, Forum of Augustus, Roman National Museum – Palazzo Massimo, Archaeological Park of Ostia Antica, Archaeological Park of Appia Antica – Villa dei Quintili, Terme di Caracalla, Villa Adriana), to symbolize how through the interaction between new talent and the spaces of history is possible to perpetuate Italian culture. The origins of the Italian genius, its deep roots, its traces thus become the fulcrum of contemporary research. The exhibition “GIOVANI CREATIVI. Le origini del Genio” will be held in Rome, at the Museo Nazionale Romano – Palazzo Massimo, in Largo di Villa Peretti, 2, from November 19, 2019 – January 31, 2020, with opening scheduled from Tuesday to Sunday, from 9 to 19.45.
The Origins of the Genius” will be held in Rome, at the National Roman Museum – Palazzo Massimo, in Largo di Villa Peretti, 2, from November 19, 2019 – January 31, 2020, with opening scheduled from Tuesday to Sunday, from 9 to 19.45.

The exhibition, composed of celebratory and narrative shots of the project, is completed by biographies and interviews with artists who tell their professional career. The narrative photos are by Simone Galli, while all the video materials have been edited by Giovanna Di Lisciandro with the support of Alvin Fabbroni.

“We have tried to conduct a research of our origins – highlight Nicola Brucoli and Carlo Settimio Battisti – in places of exchange of ideas, where the seed of Italian creativity is planted, which has always influenced our expressive matrix. The sites of Giovani Creativi 2019 express this evolutionary and expressive cultural path, through archaeological sites that better trace a complete vision of our artistic root and entrust this legacy to the new generation. The first edition of Giovani Creativi, which was held last year at the Galleria nazionale d’arte moderna e contemporanea in Rome, won the “100 storie di creatività” contest organized by Lazio Creativo in the category of visual communication and advertising, bringing the team of TWM Factory among the 100 creative under 35 of 2018 in the Lazio Region. At an academic level, we can only be happy that the entire initiative is supported by Rufa – Rome University of Fine Arts”.
