Space Don Quixote
In April 2013, the Bottari Lattes Foundation inaugurated the Don Quixote Space , based on an idea by Caterina Bottari Lattes .
The Don Quixote exhibition space bears the name of the historic Roman gallery directed by Giuliano De Marsanich , inaugurated with a personal exhibition by Mario Lattes in 1962 and presented by Alberto Moravia, with the aim of continuing with other collaborators the activity begun in Rome many years does.
Don Quixote means risk but also hope.
This seems to be the best way to remember Mario Lattes , an anomalous intellectual figure in the Turin panorama of the second half of the twentieth century, a man who was able to critically observe his own times, proposing a cultural model which is still current and stimulating today.
Spazio Don Quixote is dedicated not only to painting, engraving and photography exhibitions , 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.
