Invito a Palazzo 2010
Saturday, October 2, 2010, will mark the ninth annual Invito a Palazzo, a nationwide event providing free public access to historic structures occupied by banking offices. The initiative is organized by the Italian Banking Association (ABI) under the auspices of the President of Italy and the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities.
UniCredit Group is supporting this important initiative by inviting the public to visit its most esthetically significant buildings. The program aligns with our company's strong belief in playing an active role in the social and cultural life of our communities as well as with our commitment to the conservation and appreciation of our shared artistic and architectural heritage.
The event will provide a unique opportunity to see the interiors of these historic buildings, as well as numerous artworks of various eras from our archives, most of which are located in ordinarily inaccessible working areas.
The program has evolved into a significant cultural event in Italy, representing an occasion for UniCredit Group to share some of its most important cultural assets with the public.
During Invito a Palazzo, the public will also be able to visit several temporary exhibitions. At UniCredit Studio Milano, a new show, Handle with Care, will be opening (for more information about the exhibition Handle with Care, that it is held at the UniCredit Studio Milan, please visit the specific news). The exhibition space, which showcases young Italian and international artists participating in the Carte Blanche project, is housed within the UniCredit branch on Milan's Piazza Cordusio. The show is designed to let artists share the urban, social and political environments in which they live using a range of materials, chosen in cooperation with the show's curators. Additionally, for the first time, a Carte Blanche show, The Historical Archive: Four Interpretations, will be displayed at the Palazzo Firmian in Trento, following a successful run in Milan. Lastly, in the Sala Galleria of the Palazzo de Carolis in Rome, alumni from the Conservatorio Santa Cecilia will hold a musical performance while in the Sala Carli at the Villino Pignatelli, Rome, Professor de' Bonis will present the story of the legendary Castiglione Countess (please reserve at: 06 47912545).
