Treccani art. Cultural project and now also an exhibition space
Treccani Arte was founded in 2018 with the aim of disseminating and promoting culture, especially artistic culture, through initiatives aimed at the production of multiples of artists and publications dedicated to Italian and international contemporary art. An example of this is Utopia, which consists of a collection of posters by artists (including Elisabetta Benassi, Ettore Favini, Claire Fontaine, Piero Golia, Emilio Isgrò, Marcello Maloberti, Rä di Martino and Alessandro Piangiamore) each illustrating one of the mottos contained in the Treccani Vocabulary; the publishing project Enciclopedia d’artista (the Treccani version of the artist’s book); limited editions, like the one signed by Nico Vascellari; collaboration with institutions such as MAXXI; and then the Encyclopedia of Italian Contemporary Art, directed by Vincenzo Trione.
