The initial question was: Between real and virtual spaces, how they relate to today's artists with the third dimension? Among the works on display, all worthy of note, there are, in fact, "Fabulae Romanae" Lucy + Jorge Orta, successful blend of performance and sculpture, commissioned by Ermenegildo Zegna in the project and designed the MAXXI ZegnArt , curated by Maria Luisa Frisa. Fabulae Romanae Lucy + Jorge Orta is the first of the Special Projects of ZegnArt, initiative that engaged the Zegna Group in the field of contemporary visual arts and is a successful example of collaboration between a company and privately owned public institution.
It is, in fact, an installation of new work by Lucy and Jorge Orta specially commissioned and the result of direct collaboration between the MAXXI, the artistic duo and the project ZegnArt. With Fabulae Romanae starts putting ZegnAr closely two apparently distant worlds, that of the company and the culture. Zegna has always stood out for innovation and experimentation, the same as the artistic duo Lucy + Jorge Orta, which leads, with respect to the materials used in their creations, a great deal of research using particular innovative fabrics.
"Fabulae Romanae" is an installation dedicated to Rome to draw a perfect map of the urban fabric of Rome. After September 23, 2012, at the end of exposure, a work for a complex installation will be offered as a gift from Ermenegildo Zegna MAXXI to become part of the museum's permanent collection.
