Mantua – International Biennial of Contemporary Art

The Scientific Committee of the International Biennial of Mantova, composed by Salvatore Russo, Francesco Saverio Russo, Sandro Serradifalco (EA EDITOR of Palermo and the RUSSO Artistic Consulting Studio in Rome) and Paolo Levi (an art critic and writer) selected my work and invited me to the prestigious exhibition that took place in one of the most important art museums, at the DIOCESAN FRANCESCO GONZAGA MUSEUM.
Thanks for that!
