Following the conclusion of the acute phase of COVID-19 epidemic in Croatia and, in full compliance with health prevention and containment measures, the Italian Cultural Institute in Zagreb reopens to public tomorrow, on Thursday 25th June at its usual times.
The reopening of the Institute will be celebrated with the exhibition 100 Vico Magistretti (available from 25th June to 25th July), organised in cooperation with the Magistretti Foundation, 100 years after the birth of the great Italian architect and designer. The exhibition, curated by Rosanna Pavoni and Margherita Pellino, in the setting of the architect Ottaviano Maria Razetto, tells about the work and figure of Magistretti through sketches, drawings, photographs and projects, also presenting numerous objects that have become icons of design over time.
From tomorrow it will also be possible to access the Library – which will soon be enriched with new updated volumes and films and which will be accessible with new cards renewed in format and design – and the newspaper library, equipped with a new dedicated reading corner.
The resumption of the Institute’s activities will continue, in July, with two other important new appointments. The performance of the Sonics, a spectacular and established company of flying acrobats, as part of the Zagreb Mediterranean Festival, and an exhibition on Italian intangible heritage recognised by UNESCO, in cooperation with the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, in the beautiful surroundings of the cities of Vukovar and Ilok.
