Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, in collaboration with the City of Rivoli, unveils a new project by Patrizio Di Massimo (Jesi, 1983) which is part of the new program of site-specific commissions for the public space of the risalita meccanizzata, an automated escalator system originally designed to connect the historical city center to the piazzale by the Castello. Specific areas of the pathway, closed since 2011, have been reinstated and opened to the public to view the project and become an unprecedented exhibition space which can host new contemporarty artworks, specifically commissioned by Castello di Rivoli and open to the public Thursday to Sunday, 11:30am to 6:30pm. The first project is curated by Stella Bottai.
On Thursday June 24 at 4pm (CEST) in the Museum Theater, the artist will participate in a conversation with Leonardo Caffo, philosopher in residence at Castello di Rivoli. At 4:45pm and 6:45pm, special guided tours of The Escalator Cycle with the artist and the curator will be taking place. Due to the current health emergency, the Theatre and the guided visits have limited capacity. Please reserve your place in advance by phone +39 011 9565 213 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
