These include the exhibition Contemporanea held in 1973 in the parking space of Villa Borghese—where Corà was in charge of the section Informazione alternativa, and Mario Diacono of the section on visual and concrete poetry—and the Incontri Internazionali d’arte, all the way to the recent collaboration for the catalogue of the exhibition Burri. La poesia della materia at Fondazione Ferrero in Alba.
