Upcoming exhibition at Museo Italo Americano: Genius Loci

Sep 22, 2018 134

GENIUS LOCI is an artistic project created by 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 and Tourism and MiBACT Tourism, took 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, which was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD and later unearthed. On July 20, 2018, the first exhibition of GENIUS LOCI was inaugurated at the Royal Apartments of the Palace of Caserta.
