    IN OUT OUT IN
    From January 14th to February 22nd, Borghini Arte Contemporanea, Via Belsiana, 92

    The physical space of the gallery is transformed into a place of reflection and strong emotional suggestions thanks to the works of Silvia Scaringella and Pietro Mancini. Silvia Scaringella's creative work is slow and patient: a sculptor who shapes the material to create swarms of small bees recalling his industriousness with his own artistic gesture.It is not the light that shows reality, but the shadows of his small insects that are like images frozen in an eternal moment.In the works of Pietro Mancini, however, it is the light that seeks a way out through the perforated aluminum support: it is the hidden inner glow of humanity that implies a continuous search for interpretations to reveal the hidden message behind form and matter.

    Trastevere, ancient area of ??residence of the Etruscan population on the right bank of the Tiber. Crossing the river you will stop on the Tiber Island before reaching the Jewish quarter, where Rome still hosts the oldest Jewish community in the diaspora.

After the period of imprisonment, subsequent emancipation and persecutions, the district has in fact turned into one of the trendiest areas of the capital, frequented by both tourists and Romans attracted by the many restaurants that serve the characteristic dishes of Jewish-Roman cuisine.

    Simona Sarti, one of the best-known Roman artists, enters the space of the canvas with gestural energy, facing the creative experience as an interior path sought between the thickness of the material used in the tendentially abstract artistic act of an informal matrix. Acrylic colors and other materials, glues or gold and silver leaf, produce brilliant pigments, sometimes opaque and dull in which a very deep inner world resounds.
    Hours : from 11:00 to 19:00 (closed on Sundays)

    Freddy Fioravanti in his artistic career has never limited himself to following a single direction because this would have limited him, damaging his creativity. His artistic work is inspired by everyday experience. All his works are inspired by lived situations, people met and sensations experienced. In his representations of him he inserts grotesque characteristics, as any form of pure realism bores him. He himself defines his style as Grotesque Realism because when he paints he represents things as he sees and perceives them personally, using various clichés.
    Hours : from 16:00 to 19:30 (Monday to Saturday)
