About Casa Morra
by Piero Tomassoni
So far, my involvement with the Fondazione and with Casa Morra has mostly been geared towards fostering the international presence and recognition of the artists of the foundation, and of Casa Morra as a leading collection, archive and research hub. This involved promoting and curating exhibitions of our main artists in Italy and abroad, as well as building and maintaining solid relationships and collaborations with the artists’ estates and representing galleries. In the future I would like to complement these activities with more localised initiatives and curatorial projects specifically designed for Casa Morra, in line with its history and ethos.
