New contemporary art festival of free cultural events in Roman galleries and studios.
Art lovers in the capital can look forward to a new cultural project this autumn with the arrival of Rome Art Week.
This collaborative non-profit venture is scheduled for 24-29 October and has been organised by gallery owners to promote contemporary art in Rome.
The six-day festival will be divided between contemporary Roman galleries and open studios of the city's professional artists.
So far more than 40 galleries and 70 artists have signed up to the initiative.
The events are free and will be highlighted with a calendar and interactive map on the Rome Art Week website.
