Gallery Aperitivo & Talk - April 7, 2022

The long history of classic Italian art history is renowned, but how much do you know about contemporary art in Italy? Francesco Zero will welcome us into his private art gallery for drinks and a talk on art movements from the post-WWII period to the present. He will address the fundamental question of "What is art?" in viewers' perceptions and reactions. Along with co-owner Pino Purificato, Francesco will also relate the works of other Italian figurative artists to those of Pino's father, Domenico Purificato, who was a prominent figure in Italian neorealist painting and film.

This talk will be in Italian, with consecutive translation into English or French as needed. Light refreshments will be served.

When: Thursday, April 7, 2022
Time: 6-8 p.m.
Where: Galleria Purificato Zero, Via Bisagno 11 (Piazza Istria/Corso Trieste metro)
Cost: Free.
RSVP to canadarome@gmail.com ATTN Marielle by noon on the 6th of April. Green Passes/Proof of vaccination will be checked and COVID-19 containment measures will be respected.
