MANIFACTORY FASHION STREET IN ROMA

The first coworking center was founded in San Francisco in 2005  with the idea to combine the independence of freelancing with the structure and community of a shared work space. Since then, coworking centers have spread all over the world, and a major factor that drives demand for coworking is the growing part of independent workers. Roman designers and creatives share their space in the heart of the historic center of the capital, in via dei Funari, an area that has historically hosted artisans, with names of nearby streets like Via delle Botteghe Oscure (“The Street of the Dark Workshops”) and Via dei Falegnami (“The Street of Carpenters”). This is where Manifactory is born, a new gallery of contemporary art, craftsmanship and design, conceived by Cristiana Del Bello and Paolo Molaioni, with the aim of promoting and developing small and medium-sized craft companies and emerging designers, both Italian and International. In this space young creatives have the opportunity to create, exhibit, and sell their products in an environment among designers, for interaction and sharing.
Today 25 June at 7pm, "Fashion Street" a circular moving fashion catwalk, starting from Via dei Funari 21A along the streets of the area, up to the ruins of the Portico d'Ottavia and then returning to the gallery by turning around the magnificent Tartarughe fountain in Piazza Mattei. The models will wear the creations of emerging designers, high quality tailor made clothes and accessories and will walk side by side with a musician. Then the show will become an installation inside the gallery, where it will be possible to observe closely the details of clothes and accessories, bijoux, bags, swimwear, hand-painted tshirts, ceramics and more.
 Brands taking part to the catwalk: Alwine’s art (jewels) AreYouReady di Federico Bortolotti (t-shirts) BABAYAGA (swimwear) Barbara Iacobucci (ceremony attires) Dario De Maria (womenswear) Demis Marin (menswear ) Elisa Catini (winter’s womenswear) Made in carcere (bags and accessories) Maison 51 (bags) Maura&Carla (womenswear) Melilli Factory di Eugenio Vazzano (womenswear) MNMUR (accessories) RZL di Francesca Rizzello (womenswear) SUEF (jewels and accessories) UGUALIMAI di Cristiana del Bello (jewels and accessories). Also on display are the works of the painter Olga Volha Piashko and Massimo Ripa, a goldsmith craftsman and jewelry designer. To highlight its activity Manifactory organizes events every month in collaboration with the artisans and designers present in the gallery, attracting both an Italian and International audience.

DIVERGENCES TOWARDS THE CENTRE-NEI ALBERTI EXHIBITION

Thursday, 22 June 2018 at 6.30 p.m. will see the inauguration in Rome’s Villino Pignatelli of the first personal exhibition in Italy by Spanish artist Nei Albertí. Entitled Divergences towards the centre and curated by Sveva Manfredi Zavaglia, the project was conceived by Elena Francia Gabriele from the London agency EFG – Art – Ltd and is sponsored by the Spanish Embassy in Italy. The exhibition features a dozen or so works of sculpture and installation pieces, each highly characteristic of the artist’s creative process. They include three site-specific pieces (one approximately 30 square metres in size) that invade the halls of the exhibition space in the Villino Pignatelli, a historic neo-Renaissance palace in the centre of Rome.
 The artist explores the concepts of full and empty space and volume through the use of threads, methacrylate, spandex and glass, expanding his investigation of light with the delicate use of led spotlight software. The works are composed of semi-transparent coloured nets of Lycra, which the artist adapts and stretches in relation to the available space in a search for an equilibrium between form, size and the surrounding environment, or uses to cage illuminated transparent cubes, where the play of light and multi-coloured threads reverberates on the walls of the display space.
 Nei Albertí’s underlying aim is to focus attention on two key themes that reoccur in his work: time and rhythm. As he states himself, “we are forever running to gain time, but we lose a lot of time running.” The exhibition is an invitation to enjoy a slow, motivational stroll along a path packed with tension and full of mystery and suspense, allowing spectators to sense the fears and joys of the creative act.

 Dal 22 giugno al 22 luglio 2018 si terrà a Roma, al Villino Pignatelli, la prima mostra personale in Italia dell’artista spagnolo Nei Albertí dal titolo Divergenze al centro, a cura di Sveva Manfredi Zavaglia. Il progetto è stato ideato dall’agenzia londinese EFG – Art – Ltd di Elena Francia Gabriele, con il patrocinio dell’Ambasciata di Spagna in Italia. In mostra una decina di opere tra sculture e installazioni, esemplificative del processo creativo dell’artista, tra cui due site specific di grandi dimensioni (circa 20 mq ciascuna) che invaderanno i due saloni dello spazio del Villino Pignatelli, palazzo storico neorinascimentale nel centro di Roma.
L’artista esplora i concetti di spazio e volume, pieno e vuoto attraverso l’utilizzo di fili, metacrilato, spandex, vetro, spingendosi fino all’indagine della luce con l’utilizzo di un software leggero per le luci led spotlight. Le sue opere si compongono in reti colorate di lycra semitrasparente, che l’artista adatta, tirandole, in relazione allo spazio, alla ricerca di un equilibrio tra forma e dimensioni dell’ambiente circostante, oppure le ingabbia in cubi trasparenti illuminati, dove il gioco di luci e fili variopinti si riverbera sulle pareti della teca. In una delle stanze del Villino, già in origine utilizzata come area di raccoglimento e preghiera, l’artista creerà un ambiente di meditazione, accessibile solo singolarmente, per permettere allo spettatore una riflessione profonda che coinvolga tutti i sensi.
 Nei Albertí sembra voler focalizzare l’attenzione su due tematiche chiave che ricorrono nel suo lavoro: il tempo e il ritmo. Come lui stesso afferma “corriamo sempre per guadagnare tempo, ma perdiamo un sacco di tempo nel correre”. La mostra è un invito a un percorso lento, colmo di tensioni piene di mistero e di suspense, dove si possono percepire le paure e le gioie dell’atto creativo.
