Don Quixote means risk but also hope.

Spazio Don Quixote is dedicated not only to exhibitions of painting, engraving and photography , but also hosts literary and musical events , acting as a meeting place where artists, intellectuals, experts or simply curious can exchange ideas, proposals and projects.
