Romarama, art that moves the city. Presented the capital's program of events through December 2020

The new schedule of events and activities scheduled to flourish until the end of the year, Romarama, art that moves the city, was presented.

Romarama, art that moves the city is the program of events and activities planned until the end of the year in Rome: the schedule was presented by Mayor Virginia Raggi, Deputy Mayor Luca Bergamo and Culture Commission President Eleonora Guadagno, and was created by Roma Capitale, Assessorato alla Crescita Culturale.

The title Romarama, conceived by illustrator Chiara Fazi for Zètema, with the suffix -orama (from the Greek, veduta), refers to a broader view, to the ways for a rebirth based on change, while L’arte che muove la città is inspired by Lucio Dalla’s song La sera dei miracoli dedicated to Rome. Romarama thus intends to propose a broad vision of Rome and of a community that starts moving again to return to common spaces. Indeed, the goal is to return public spaces and “the courage to do it together, to our city community and to the tourists who will want to join in. Rome will be one of the few Italian cities to maintain summer, fall and winter programming and to create new events and activities to allow the many Romans who, especially in summer, will remain in the city to experience urban spaces.”

Romarama in the summer of 2020 will be declined through four main poles: the cavea of theAuditorium Parco della Musica, the outdoor space of Teatro India, the parks with the activities and projects of the summer call, and the MAXXI square.

Here are some of the main events on the bill.

From July 1 to 30, MAXXI will offer events dedicated to cinema, books and theater, and from October it will include a new display of the Collection with no margin. Passages in Italian Art at the Turn of the Millennium.

At Villa Caffarelli, the Capitoline Museums’ new exhibition space, the major exhibition Torlonia Marbles. Collecting Masterpieces curated by Salvatore Settis and Carlo Gasparri. In the last week of October, the Quadriennale, curated this year by Sarah Cosulich and Stefano Collicelli Cagol, will return to Palazzo delle Esposizioni.

From August 16 to 25, the Macro museum will offer Tracce, an exhibition by Lawrence Weiner conceived by Luca Lo Pinto that will take place on the stretch of coastline between Ladispoli and Anzio: it will be a series of aerial banners that will also pay homage to Germano Celant, who recently passed away.

Back to nature - contemporary art at Villa Borghese will also be held from Sept. 9 to Dec. 12: artists such as Mario Merz, Edorado Tresoldi, Mimmo Paladino and Grazia Toderi will be involved in a project where the works will confront the vegetation and the available spaces. The initiative will involve the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, the Casa del Cinema, Palaexpo, and the Santa Cecilia Conservatory of Music.

An exhibition scheduled for mid-October at the Mattatoio will then show artistic visions of the area interpreted by five international photographers-Sarah Moon, Nadav Kander, Alex Majoli, Martin Kollar, and Tommaso Protti.

Among the novelties for 2021/22 is the Museum of the Suburbs of Tor Bella Monaca, which will be born from the collaboration between Roma Capitale Assessorato alla Crescita Culturale, Municipio Roma VI and Azienda Speciale Palaexpo, curated by Giorgio de Finis. The idea is to give life to an international study center of urban peripheries. The project concerns the establishment of a specialized Library, a video library, a permanent collection, some artist residencies and research projects, exhibitions, publications, lectio magistralis and meetings. During 2020, two new murals will be created at Block R8 and the street art project already started at largo Ferruccio Menganoni will be completed.
