Tullio Vietri Atelier, Bologna Via Saragozza 135.
Atelier Tullio Vietri, Bologna Via Saragozza 135.
The last studio where Vietri worked between 1995 and 2008, complete with the original furnishings, now welcomes the family’s rich private collection (around 1,500 pieces including paintings and graphics) and the “editorial office” of the magazine Critica Radicale, which he founded and directed, as well as a significant collection of catalogs of exhibitions of contemporary artists, visited mainly in Emilia Romagna and Veneto, that were submitted to the magazine. A meaningful environment capable of creating a virtual dialogue with the artist.
Opened to the public in 2020, it joins – in the project to enhance Vietri’s artistic and cultural work – the Municipality of Oderzo, custodian, through a testamentary bequest, of 4000 works, including paintings and graphics, as well as the library and archives. Having become a member of the Associazione Nazionale Case della Memoria (National Association of Houses of Memory) in 2019, from 2020 the Tullio Vietri Atelier will be registered, along with the pieces present in public collections in the region, by PatER digital cultural heritage catalog of Emilia Romagna; in April 2022 the Tullio Vietri Atelier is one of the 95 sites recognised by the Regional Department for Culture and Landscape as being of “patrimonial, territorial and cultural importance” as defined in the volume “Case e studi delle persone illustri dell’Emilia-Romagna” (“Houses and studies of illustrious personalities of Emilia-Romagna”) edited by Cristina Ambrosini and Claudia Collina (Bologna University Press) and in March 2023 it is one of the 52 studies that were granted the mark.
The Atelier promotes temporary indoor and outdoor exhibitions, educational activities, meetings with scholars and art critics. It participates in initiatives promoted by the National Association of Houses of Memory, also adhering to national open days on the calendar.
