Press Release

In the four previous editions of The Milky Way – in 2014 at Lia Rumma Gallery in Naples, in 2015 at Studio SALES di Norberto Ruggeri Gallery in Rome, in 2016 at Giò Marconi Gallery in Milan and in 2018 again at Lia Rumma Gallery, in Naples – more than 150 artists from different countries enthusiastically and generously joined the fundraising in support of Pianoterra’s activities.

For its fifth edition, The Milky Way will take place in Turin, hosted by Franco Noero gallery in the headquarter of Piazza Carignano 2, overlooking the courtyard that recalls the theme chosen for this year’s edition, Interno/Inner. Forty artists will support Pianoterra this year by donating one of their artworks: Isabel Barber, Pierre Bismuth, Manuele Cerutti, Claudia Comte, Matteo Cordero, Sara Enrico, Jason Dodge, Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Petra Feriancova, Francesca Ferreri, Shay Frisch, Naoki Fuku, Martino Gamper, Silvia Giambrone, Teresa Giannico, Rodrigo Hernández, Sebastiano Impellizzeri, Eva Kot’átková, KIKKO, Renato Leotta, Tamara MacArthur, Daniele Milvio, Ignasi Monreal, Lulù Nuti, Marco Palmieri, Pietro Pasolini, Federico Pietrella, Benedetto Pietromarchi, Caterina Pini, Andrea Respino, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Yves Scherer, Enrico Tealdi, Rirkrit Tiravanija e Tomas Vu, Grazia Toderi, Giovanni Vetere, Peter Wächtler.

All proceeds from the sales have supported and reinforced pregnant women, mothers and children whose health and wellbeing are at risk because of deprivation and social marginality, building with them new paths of support, listening, care and professional training. By purchasing an artwork from the exhibition and supporting Pianoterra’s activity you can become part of the same path.

A catalogue for the exhibition will be produced by CURA.

The Milky Way is a benefit group show in support of Pianoterra Onlus.
