Back to Nature. Contemporary Arts at Villa Borghese, Rome, September 15 – December 13, 2020

The park of Villa Borghese, one of the most famous and loved historical parks in Rome, will host Back to Nature. Contemporary Art in Villa Borghese, curated by Costantino D’Orazio. An unprecedented exhibition project that reflects on the future and on the need to build a new relationship with nature in this complicated period of climate change and pandemic. On display, with free admission, are a series of installations designed to be exhibited outdoors by internationally renowned artists Andreco, Mario Merz, Mimmo Paladino, Benedetto Pietromarchi, Davide Rivalta, Grazia Toderi, Edoardo Tresoldi and Nico Vascellari.

Back to Nature represents an absolute novelty within the cultural programming of the city. It is the first coordinated project with contemporary art installations which are part of a strategy to enhance the historical parks of the capital. The works will dialogue thanks to their transparency, which will allow you to admire them in harmony with the nature of the park and in perfect coexistence with each other. Walking in the park will allow visitors to enjoy the interaction between the contemporary works of art, the architecture of the park and the plants that inhabit it.
