Mario Cristiani entra nel Comitato Scientifico della Fondazione Ermanno Casoli

The Fondazione Ermanno Casoli is delighted to announce the entry of Mario Cristiani onto its Advisory Board.

Founder and co-director, along with Maurizio Rigillo and Lorenzo Fiaschi, of the Galleria Continua – one of the most important institutions for contemporary art at an international level with branches in San Gimignano, Beijing and the vicinity of Paris – Mario Cristiani carries out constant research into the question of the promotion of art, to which he assigns a fundamental role in the construction of reality. President of the Associazione Arte Continua, which has been operating since 1990 in the province of Siena and elsewhere, Cristiani has also focused his research on the possibility of establishing a new relationship between the city and its territory, through the creation of unprecedented links between art, architecture and landscape in collaboration with the local authorities (Arte all’Arte, ArtePollino un altro sud).
For these reasons Mario Cristiani’s involvement is in perfect keeping with the objectives and values on which the activity of the Fondazione Ermanno Casoli is based: promoting the educational and methodological function of art, trying out new directions, supporting dialogue between different disciplines, actively involving the viewer, presenting art as an ethical model, developing the territory through a cultural proposal of quality.
