Diego Perrone, protagonist of the exhibition Pendio piovoso frusta la lingua, will meet the public to present his own personal “art history” with a slide show of images, sounds and videos. A way to rethink the classical structure of the artist talk, to bring out and share interests, influences and imaginaries.
The event will take place in the auditorium.
Free entry until seating capacity is reached.
