100 Painters at the Spanish Steps in Rome

Rome's 100 Pittori returns to Piazza di Spagna after 25 years.

29 Nov-1 Dec. Long associated with Via Margutta, 100 Pittori moves to nearby Piazza di Spagna for a special edition over the weekend of 29 November to 1 December.

The three-day open-air art event, which has not taken place in front of the Spanish Steps for about 25 years, will feature around 1,200 works by over 100 artists, whom the public can meet during the event.

100 Pittori begins at 17.30 on 29 November and over the course of the following two days the paintings will be exhibited from 10.00-20.00.

The 100 Pittori art festival was launched the same year that the movie Roman Holiday made Via Margutta famous: 1953.

The tradition began thanks to the spontaneous initiative of Via Margutta's painters, sculptors, poets, musicians and craftspeople who moved in to the street in the aftermath of world war two.

Located near Piazza del Popolo and Via del Babuino, the fashionable Via Margutta is occupied mainly by upmarket art galleries and antique shops.
