Magazzino Italian Art presented the book signing event of Marco Anelli: Building Magazzino, a three year photographic portfolio by Italian photographer Marco Anelli, commissioned by Magazzino founders Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu. 

Published by Skira Rizzoli in 2017 and designed by Waterhouse Cifuentes Design, the book illustrates Anelli’s portfolio documenting the construction of Magazzino, an art warehouse in Cold Spring, New York conceived by Spanish architect Miguel Quismondo. The balanced beauty of Anelli’s photographs captures the passing of time and the fleeting feeling of impermanence with a distinguished calmness and serenity. The book features essays by Manuel Blanco, Alberto Campo Baeza and Marvin Heiferman.

"The performance's main focus is not about the individual conception of it by the artist, but about the fusion and involvement between the people in the artistic world and those you may encounter on the street, who are part of the common and daily life." With these words, Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto addressed one of the main tenets of his recurring Walking Sculpture performance, the latest of which was organized by Magazzino Italian Art on November 4, 2017, down the streets of Cold Spring, New York.

"Marco Anelli: Building Magazzino" is the title of Italian artist Marco Anelli’s commissioned photographic project documenting Magazzino Italian Art’s construction process in its entirety—from its conceptualization in 2014 to its transformation from an industrial building into a warehouse dedicated to an extraordinary collection of Italian Art.

A homonymous exhibition—organized by Magazzino Italian Art with the Italian Cultural Institute of New York and curated by Magazzino’s Director Vittorio Calabrese—displayed 24 large-format color photographs selected from the artist’s latest oeuvre, including 11 portraits, three of which had almost-real-life-size dimensions.

Magazzino Italian Art

Magazzino Italian Art introduced its events programming on September 15, 2017, with a special screening of NYsferatu: Symphony of a Century: a hand-animated, silent film by Italian artist Andrea Mastrovito. Captivating a fascinated public for over an hour, the artist’s oeuvre was set to the live musical accompaniment of the Marco Cappelli acoustic trio in the open air of Magazzino’s courtyard.

Inspired by Friedrich W. Murnau’s 1922 Nosferatu film, the Italian artist resurrected this iconic vampire film with a contemporary twist. At a time of political unrest, NYsferatu’s timely plotline depicted the multiple hardships and stereotypes immigrants encounter on a daily basis. Mastrovito captured this principle as a result of basing his visual narratives on his numerous conversations with recent immigrants.
