The show

The new project presented as a world premiere by Arthemisia at Palazzo Albergati in Bologna "Fantastic Animals" is much more than an exhibition. It represents a new frontier of entertainment, in which animals, art, magic, fun and dreams come together. The museum is transforms into an immense open space, in which animals find their ideal habitat, welcoming everyone, adults and children, art experts and the curious.

There will be over 90 animals that will cross the magical threshold of Palazzo Albergati, created by 23 great contemporary artists.

It is the first artist's zoo created in the world, without cages, without distances and animated by paintings, sculptures and installations of animals of all species; a superzoo that will see the noble rooms of the Palace transformed into a new museum habitat, a pedestrian safari where the works accompany the visitor on a walk inside a fairy tale, where animals coexist in the most respectful of artistic ecosystems.
