Cavallerizza Turin is the headquarters of Paratissima, a permanent incubator of events, exhibitions, courses and activities related to contemporary art.
Founded in 2005 as an annual fair for emerging artists, over the years Paratissima has created a network of events at a national level (and beyond) whose mission has always been to give visibility and multiply the exhibition opportunities for artists and talents not yet fully recognized by the institutional dogs of contemporary art, also through the establishment of awards or projects that aim at the promotion of emerging artists such as Art Production , where selected artists are supported in the production of their works, created exclusively for Paratissima in limited, unpublished and valuable editions.
In 2021 Paratissima inaugurates the cycle of great exhibitions , a gallery dedicated to portraits of famous contemporary artists . In the new setting, large exhibitions will dialogue with projects that see emerging art as protagonists, artists beyond chronological ages and artistic paths. No longer just a fair of emerging and independent artists, but a truly sui generis cultural and exhibition format .
Increasingly open, dynamic, sustainable, flexible and increasingly multidisciplinary and international. A vision of contemporary art that underlines and reinforces the concept of "contemporary" in its most fertile aspects: innovation, change, requalification through culture, accessibility, enhancement of emerging talent, creativity .
Today Paratissima has an exhibition itinerary of over 10,000 square meters which extends between the spaces of the Artillery, the Galoppatoio, the Stables and the ground floor and the courtyard of the Manica del Mosca of the Royal Cavallerizza Complex.
