RIPETTA 222 -Four days of performance at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome


the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, Via di Ripetta 222, Rome, Italy

Performances by:

Alastair MacLennan (Ireland), Tomasz Szrama (Poland), Andriy Helytovych (Ukraine), Gwendoline Robin (Belgium), Laima Kreivyté (Lithuania), Myriam Laplante (Italy-Canada), Grossi Maglioni (Italy), Thomas Valerio (Italy), Lucia Bricco (Italy), Tiziana Pers (Italy) and Ucci Ucci, Cosimo Mollica, Giuseppe Epicoco, Ainda Fabbricini and Diana Grebla.

Ripetta 222 involves Italian and international artists and takes place in the historic building of Via di Ripetta, headquarters of the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, which has a very long history to tell.

With this project, its walls become the protagonists of the research of the artists, who have personally chosen the spaces where they realize their performances, taking inspiration from Thomas Mann's novel The Buddenbrooks, where the story of a nineteenth-century family is told through the historic home of the lineage.

To carry out their narrative, some artists consulted historical archives, for others the suggestion came from the particularity of the interior spaces, from the large rooms marked by impressive carvings to the smaller classrooms.

Ripetta 222 offers a dense program that includes fourteen performances in four days, with constant changes of scenery and all artists present in the spaces of Via Ripetta.

The Academy of Fine Arts of Rome as a place of artistic production involved several departments in the realization of the project. Ripetta, 222 is curated by the Department of Communication and Art Didactics, with the collaboration of the Departments of Design and Applied Arts, Fashion Design and Visual Arts.

Coordination of the project is by Francesco Giovanetti.
