Granpalazzo 2017 conceived by Paola Capata, Delfo Durante, Ilaria Gianni and Federica Schiavo returns for its third edition. This year’s exhibitions will take place at Palazzo Chigi in Ariccia, another one of Lazio’s hidden treasures. As charming as Zagarolo, the gracious small town that hosted the previous editions, Ariccia offers a more ambitious setting just 18 km from Rome, and was selected with the precise intent of bringing art-world professionals and artists together in original, exclusive surroundings.

This year’s event gives an encore of the abundant and dynamic participation of the 2016 event with 27 galleries from all over Europe (Austria, France, Germany, Gran Bretagna, Holland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, and naturally, Italy) and an equal number of artists from other parts of the world. Most were born in the 70s and 80s in Italy, Brazil, France, Germany, Great Britain, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Spain, United States, Sweden, not to mention masters like Tomaso Binga, the stage name adopted by Bianca Pucciarelli Menna, born in Salerno in 1931.
