With The MiC for Rome Art in the Cloud, several museum and cultural institutions belonging to the Ministry of Culture are actively participating in the fair for the first time: from MAXXI - Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, present with two important works from its Collection, namely Untitled (Triple igloo) by Mario Merz and Ciclomóvil by Pedro Reyes, to the Museum of Civilizations with several artists including Victor Fotso Nyie and his ceramic work Suivre ses Reves; from the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art exhibiting Nero bianco nero (1955), an iconic work by Alberto Burri to the Archivio Luce Cinecittà presenting two site-specific postings/installations; on the ground floor, a presentation of newsreels dedicated to the major exhibitions of the 1960s, and on the second floor, a review of films produced by the Archives and dedicated to contemporary art.

Significant is the participation of the MiC’s General Directorate for Contemporary Creativity with a digital information island that will present activities related to the promotion and support of contemporary visual arts and architecture, as well as cultural and creative enterprises and urban regeneration interventions. It will also be an opportunity to learn more about public notices and projects in the different areas of responsibility and to learn about some of the tools, such as the web platforms created by DGCC that collect censuses and mapping of the various forms of contemporary art and architecture.

Roma Capitale is also present, with the exhibition The City of Women: an elaborate visual journey on women’s bodies in the consideration of a relationship that almost no longer distinguishes the semantic value of women’s bodies with that of the city of Rome itself.

Among the many special projects is a major exhibition dedicated to Alighiero Boetti, realized in collaboration with Galleria Tornabuoni Arte. A tribute to the artist, whose 30th anniversary of his death will be celebrated in 2024, the exhibition includes a selection of thirty works on paper, expressions of the artist’s different phases. From Untitled, emblematic of the transition between the poverist and conceptual phases, it continues with the Postal Works and their mathematical permutations, to the so-called Biros and Friezes.

Also planned is a rich program of Talks, which will be hosted on the Nuvola floor and in which different voices, both Italian and international, including artists, curators, collectors and museum directors, will discuss the major themes of the contemporary. Prizes will also be awarded as part of the fair in order to testify to the attention that Roma Arte in Nuvola pays to the care and originality with which galleries set up their stands.
