TTOZOI: Genius Loci

Jan 24, 2019 280

Thursday, February 7 - Sunday, June 9,2019 | Tuesdays thru Sundays | 12:00-4:00pm . Museo Italo Americano, Fort Mason, 2 Marina Blvd, Building C, San Francisco, CA. GENIUS LOCI is a project created by two Italian artists, Stefano Forgione and Giuseppe Rossi, who work under the pseudonym TTOZOI. The concept stems from the idea of creating works of art in situ at select historical sites, using the original technique of the natural proliferation of molds on jute, with pictorial intervention by the artists.

GENIUS LOCI, created by TTOZOI and developed under the patronage of Italy’s Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Activities and Tourism (MiBAC), has taken place at two of Italy’s UNESCO World Heritage sites: The ROYAL PALACE OF CASERTA with its Necropoli Sannita dating back to the 4th century BC, and in the amphitheater in the ARCHEOLOGICAL PARK OF POMPEII, as well as in Rome’s ancient JEWISH GHETTO. A future phase of the project is currently being planned for the ROMAN COLOSSEUM.
