Fondazione VOLUME !
The Fondazione Volume! is a Foundation active in Contemporary Art in Rome. It is based in Trastevere, in a former glass factory.
Founded in 1997 by Francesco Nucci with the support of artists, curators and creatives, the space of Fondazione Volume! soon became a laboratory of ideas, proposing an unusual and unclassifiable project: giving artists the opportunity to consider space as a living body, with its peculiarities, its history, its versatility, to be able to rethink the space by modifying it in such a way as to make it part of the work, creating something different each time that can stimulate ever new emotions in the viewer.
Through exhibitions, projects and events, artists are free to modify the architecture of the space in order to create something new and unique. The space is never returned to its original state, but manages to preserve the memory of its past through the layers of the walls.
The fundamental purpose of the Fondazione Volume! is to support the public idea of culture, to restore a dialogue with art capable of including fertile relationships with other intellectual fields.
