Volumnia Opening

28 October 2018
Volumnia sounds large. In reality, it is massive. Volumnia is a platform for art and design that will inhabit the cavernous interior of a former church in the heart of Piacenza. With roots in the renaissance, it is a monumental and awe-inspiring space steeped in history, with rows of columns that spring dozens of meters into the air.

Volumnia sounds large. In reality, it is massive. Volumnia is a platform for art and design that will inhabit the cavernous interior of a former church in the heart of Piacenza. With roots in the renaissance, it is a monumental and awe-inspiring space steeped in history, with rows of columns that spring dozens of meters into the air.
Enrica de Micheli, a gallerist with over 20 years of experience in antiques and design, is the initiator of the reactivation of this historic space through a broad range of activities including an exhibition space, a bistrot and a year-round cultural program directed by Joseph Grima and Valentina Ciuffi. Positioned within striking distance of all of northern Italy, Volumnia will be a key node in the national and international network of cross-disciplinary arts spaces and initiatives.
