Today 26th February 2016, the event “The market gets a new look” will take place in the vintage Metronio Market in Rome. The unique art exhibition aims to regenerate, enrich and revive the valuable architectural evidence of the old structure, to include it into the suburban fabric of the gorgeous city. An initiative by the Association “Arte Altra e Carteinregola” and with the support of the VII Council of Rome, AGS Mercato Metronio, and with the artistic contribution of JD Institute of Fashion Technology and the JD International Design School, Bangalore, the permanent exhibition creates a culturally significant and strong artistic platform to showcase the works of artists of different nationalities and genres. The one of a kind project offered a valuable and a prestigious international stage for the students of JD Education Trust to present their years of hard work and academic excellence in the form of art and design work – high on creativity, innovation and imagination.
The event will be inaugurated by Antonello Ciancio, President of Rome City Hall Council and Rosa Simonelli, followed by a slide show titled “San Giovanni area as it was”. To preserve the essence of the market, fruits and vegetables became the colours for the realisation of the artwork.
