Gallery/Dealer Details - Fondazione Volume!
The Volume! Foundation is born in 1997 as a no-profit cultural association.
The space ,which is an old glass factory in the heart of Trastevere, has become in a very short time a testing ground of ideas with the support of a group of roman intellectuals. It proposes an unusual and not classifiable project: it gives to the artists the opportunity to account the space as a living body with its peculiarities and its history. They can change the space and it to let it become part of their work, each time creating something different which can stimulate in the viewer new emotions.
The artistsâ€™ versatility allows the destruction and the rebuilding of the architecture.
The space is never carried over to the original virginity, but it keeps its history ,its walls are like skin which has several layers.
In a city such as Rome is; where each building encompass another one , where the old monuments have become pits to make new buildings; Volume! has carried on this long history.
During the years a lot of internationally known artists came one after the other and let Volume! become an important step of their artistic path.
