Description

The Galleria del Cembalo, opened by Paola Stacchini Cavazza and Mario Peliti, reflects a desire to make some of the magnificent halls on the ground floor of Palazzo Borghese available to the art world. In the late 18th century, these halls were set aside by Marcantonio VI Borghese for the prestigious collection formerly belonging to Cardinal Scipione, and which was later transferred to Villa Borghese.

Passaggi, an exhibition curated by Giovanna Calvenzi in May 2013 for the inauguration of the gallery, explores the theme of discontinuity and thematic and stylistic change in the work of three generations of Italian photographers, from the aftermath of World War II to today. These photographers are Ugo Mulas, Mario Cresci, Olivo Barbieri, Gabriele Basilico, Francesco Radino, Antonio Biasiucci, Paolo Pellegrin, Luca Campigotto, Paolo Ventura, Silvia Camporesi, Alice Pavesi and Moira Ricci.

With thirty exhibitions in four years, the Galleria del Cembalo stands out among Italian galleries for its well thought-out programme, its wealth of events – often offered simultaneously, in order to highlight the relation between different authors and themes – and the constant dialogue it fosters between young artists and great masters.

The Galleria del Cembalo is the exclusive representative of Charles Fréger, Danila Tkachenko, Alessandro Imbriaco, Gilbert Garcin, and includes among its artists Paolo Gioli, Paolo Ventura, Antonio Biasiucci, Mario Cresci, Malick Sidibé, Paolo Pellegrin, Alain Fleischer, and Stefano Cerio.
