To guide people in this comprehensive event, critics and influential players of the sector will show the audience the tours arranged according to their sensitivity. Alberto Dambruoso, Alfredo Pirri, Antonio Arévalo, Bruno Aller, Claudio Zambianchi, Daniela Fonti, Giovanni Albanese, Ilaria Schiaffini, Lorenzo Canova, Mike Watson, Paolo Balmas, Raffaele Gavarro, Roberto Gramiccia, Saverio Verini, Shara Wasserman: these are the experts who will offer their vision of the state of art in Rome.
The division between galleries and artists in the exhibition is important to promote both the industry and the creative aspect of professional artists. In this way the public events will be organized by galleries, which will also revive ongoing shows or a collective of the team of artists collaborating with them. At the same time there will be many opportunities to meet with artists through open studios or in a target area with the presence of the creative professionals.
Rome Art Week is art initiative promoted by KOU - a non-profit association for the promotion of visual arts, with the sponsorship of the City of Rome and the International Union of Institutes of Archaeology, History and Art History in Rome.
