The Nuovo Forno del Pane is an interdisciplinary production center that transforms the spaces of MAMbo traditionally intended for temporary exhibitions: no longer an exhibition area but a place of production, a creative community where art becomes bread for the mind and the museum is transformed into oven, incubator of creativity, space that Bologna offers to its artists to be reborn after this planetary emergency.
The project is carried out thanks to the support of the main partner UniCredit and to the Hera Group, Unipol Group and IMA partners.
The press conference will take place in presence for a limited number of participants, in compliance with anti Covid-19 security measures.
The representatives of the interested media (journalists, photographers, video operators) are requested to register by 5.00 pm on Monday 13 July 2020 by replying to this e-mail.
Remember to come with a mask and to keep the interpersonal distance within the spaces of the museum.
