Banksy - Guerra, Capitalismo & Libertà
War, Capitalism & Liberty, are the contemporary issues explored in this exhibition through the artworks of the main international street artist known as Banksy. This thought-provoking exhibition is to be held at Palazzo Cipolla, from 24 May to 4 September 2016. The exhibition includes extensive corpus artis of Banksy’s works coming from private international collections. Original paintings, prints, sculptures and rare objects will be exhibited, many of which have never been shown previously. It is a non-profit exhibition, characterized by a strong educational and school-targeting component, which is a comprehensive scientific review of the artist known as Banksy. As a street artist with his roots in Bristol, Banksy has influenced globally the urban art movement and is arguably one of the movement’s most notorious artist. The exhibition will examine how social and political events of our world are viewed through the street art of Banksy; from his motif of monkeys declaring ‘Laugh Now But One Day I’ll Be in Charge’ to the chilling image of ‘Kids on Guns’. Banksy is one of most discussed, debated and acclaimed cultural figures of our age. His anonymous persona has captivated international audiences since the late 1990s. An urban artist, his media ranges from painting on canvas, screen-prints and sculpture to large installations and even the occasional livestock. His artwork reveals a unique mix of humour and humanity; it is created for the masses and affords a voice for those in – and indeed outside – of society who would otherwise not be heard. A recent example is his commentary on the refugee crisis and the after effects of Dismaland. His anonymity and refusal to conform mean that he is as difficult to nail down as is his artwork, and thus a survey of his works has never been officially or unofficially exposed in a private museum to a public audience. The Fondazione brought together this collection – which is extensive and unprecedented – thanks to lenders from around the world. The exhibition will highlight Banksy’s great artistic skills, through all his career, underlining the main inspiration sources: WAR, CAPITALISM and LIBERTY.

LA LUNA AL FORO ROMANO
On the 22nd of April the fascinating path at the Roman Forum opens every friday during nighttime from 20:15 to 24:00 with guided visits (last entry at 22:45). The itinerary starts at the Basilica Emilia, built in 179 BC where all activities of the Forum where held, in a covered space, during bad weather conditions. From here the lights show the row of colums who divide the space of the basilica perfectly. The intinerary continues to the right towards the Temple of Divo Giulio and leads to the impressive building of the Curia Julia, seat of the Roman Senate. The tour passes in front of the church S. Maria Antiqua, reopened for public after 30 years and where unique paintings from the Christian world of the first millennium are shown, dating from the sixth to the ninth century. Then the visit turns to the Via Sacra to reach the Arch of Titus while passing by the Temple of Antonino and Faustina, constructed in 141 AD. The restoration revealed the beauty of the six huge marble columns, 17 meters high.

PIER LUIGI NERVI - ARCHITETTURE PER LO SPORT
This exhibition features a host of drawings, photographs, documents and models from over 60 projects for sports facilities, much of drawn from the Nervi Archive in the MAXXI Architettura collections. A unique opportunity to examine the development of the design and constructional methods of the engineer from the first works such as the Stadio Berta in Florence to the buildings for the 1960 Rome Olympics and through to the great international projects such as the Kuwait Sports Centre. Three-dimensional graphic presentations and constructional models realised by La-Mo and LaMoViDA of the University of Bolognas enrich as section devoted to the projects for stadia in Italy and abroad. Also on show is a special model in Plexiglas of the Palazzetto dello Sport made by two students from the ISIA, the Istituto Superiore per le Industrie Artistiche (Rome), Aureliano Capri and Elettra Renzi, revealing the system for distributing forces conceived by Nervi for the building. This model constitutes a central element in a series of guided visits devoted to Nervi’s work that also include a “tactile” route designed for blind and partially-sighted people. Realised in collaboration the Centro Regionale Sant’Alessio, the route involves a walk around the Palazzetto dello Sport introducing participants to the built structure and an exhibition visit facilitated by the model and tactile tables.
