"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.
