Zerynthia Association for Contemporary Art

Zerynthia Association for Contemporary Art


Zerynthia Association for Contemporary Art, based in Rome and founded in 1991 under the honorary presidency of Nobel Prize Rita Levi Montalcini, curates, promotes and organises contemporary art events in Italy and abroad with the aim of pushing the boundaries towards the fruition of art, always experimenting with new methods. 

It presents itself as a light and flexible structure capable of acting as a complementary model to institutional cultural structures. It collaborates with companies—both public and private—interested in integrating with contemporary art, seeing it as a vector of development and cultural enrichment. 

In line with its nature as a promoter of art, it organises meetings, conventions, and study seminars, also carrying out intense didactic activity. 

The numerous events organised and curated by Zerynthia have been the starting point of research and enduring exchanges between artists and the organisations involved. 

Zerynthia maintains a steady collaboration with RAM radioartemobile and RAM LIVE, a web radio dedicated to contemporary art through a 24h live stream. 

Zerynthia publishes catalogues and books as well as producing editions with artists. 

Since July 2015 the Association is registered as O.d.V. – cultural section.
