Room Auditorium activities

Eni Project

Eni is once again the Main Sponsor of Art Quadriennale, which has reached its 17th edition.

The project, entitled Intemporaneo, was born from the idea of creating an experience through which the visitor could be immersed in an atmosphere of artistic transformation that will lead them on a virtual journey from the classical to the contemporary.

The 100 images projected inside the Auditorium of Palazzo delle Esposizioni show artworks from the Renaissance to 2020, coming from the Eni art collection, the artworks on display at the FUORI 2020 Art Quadriennale and the rich archive of the Merlini-Storti Art Restoration Studio, which has curated its selection and sequencing as well.

Marco Capasso worked on the digital animation of the images, blending the single photos together and transforming them into a unique visual experience. Finally, composer Antonio Fresa created an ad-hoc soundtrack that, in perfect harmony with the images, leads the audience into a world that is out of time.

The project was conceived and curated by Studio Merlini-Storti and Studio Creativo Marco Capasso.



Again in the Auditorium, every day at 11 am and 5 pm, there will be a showing of the documentary “You art”, which is about the experience of 7 teams of high school students coming from Ghana, Cyprus, UAE and Italy debating each other on issues related to contemporary art. The project is promoted by Eni in partnership with La Quadriennale di Roma.

Visit to Giacomo Balla’s Bal Tic-Tac mural

On the occasion of the 2020 Art Quadriennale, the Bank of Italy will exceptionally open the hall that housed the entrance to Bal Tic-Tac, the futurist venue decorated by Giacomo Balla and inaugurated in Via Milano in 1921, right next to Palazzo delle Esposizioni. In the room, you will be able to see Balla’s mural painting, discovered in 2017 and restored under the supervision of the Special Superintendence of Rome. Access will be allowed only upon reservation to visitors to the Quadriennale and, given the safety regulations and the reduced capacity of the venue, it will only be possible for small groups of people. In the future, Balla’s decorations for Bal Tic-Tac will be fully enhanced and open to the public in the permanent exhibition space on currency and finance currently being planned within the framework of the Center for Monetary and Financial Education named after Carlo Azeglio Ciampi. With this special initiative dedicated to Balla, who was an important protagonist of many Quadrennials, the Bank of Italy is confirming, from a social responsibility perspective, its commitment to the enhancement of its historical-artistic heritage.
