Palazzo Cavallerini Lazzaroni, built by the architect Giovanni Antonio De Rossi in 1676, is located in the heart of the historic center of Rome, between Campo de 'Fiori and Largo di Torre Argentina. Splendid example of Roman Baroque. In this magnificent building there is Contemporary Cluster, a contemporary art and design gallery. The Palace, enlarged and renewed, hosts temporary exhibitions, projects and weekly events that intend to bring an innovative and research space to Rome.
The main floor, with its extraordinary 17th century frescoes, the exhibitions of international artists and a wide selection of designer designs make Contemporary Cluster a unique place. Cluster is a place in turmoil and open to all forms of art: visual art, photography, video, jewelery-metals-design-fashion, design-music-vehicles (motorcycles and cars), surpassing the traditional canons of art while traveling towards the idea of total contemporaneity, because art is movement, change, contamination, narrative voice of the times we live in.
Palazzo Cavallerini Lazzaroni is a four-storey structure that with the characteristic stratification of this building, with architectural interventions of various periods affecting both the frescoes and the floors, is congenial to host the changing nature of Contemporary Cluster that moves between design dynamics and production in many different sectors.
The structure, in fact, allows to separate the part relating to the exhibitions, housed in the highest and frescoed floor, from the commercial one, which is very enlarged and visible on the ground floor of the building. On the intermediate floor you can work in a finely furnished space and take advantage of a bookshop with five publishers. There is also an always open bar conceived as the lounge room of a hotel.
