MAD in Monti: Monti Arte e Design

Four-day art festival taking place in 64 venues in Rome's Monti district.

The cultural associations Incinque Open Art Monti and Marte in Monti present MAD in Monti: Monti Arte e Design, a four-day festival dedicated to design, art and crafts, taking place throughout Rome's Monti district from 7-10 June.
With cultural events in no less than 64 venues, the initiative is designed to promote and encourage the area's artists, designers and artisans, examining the links between their work and Monti itself.

The festival, which incorporates exhibitions, live music, performance, poetry and art tours, puts a special focus on the continuation of ancient crafts and traditions in the present day.
In addition to studios and workshops, events will be held in galleries such as dMake and Galla, restaurants including Humus Bistrot and Ami Poké, and bars such as Sacripante and Ice Club, with information relating to the artists and events available via QR codes on special maps.Highlights over the four days include the award-winning Roman performer Barbara Lalle with a performance at Galleria Incinque Open Art Monti; exhibitions at Monti's local market by well-known Roman artist Fausto delle Chiaie (whose work featured on the March 2018 edition of Wanted in Rome magazine); and live music by Three Blind Mice at Black Market; and a concert by Christian Lavernier at Auditorium di Mecenate (booking obligatory, madinmonti@gmail.com).
Over the weekend the artisans' workshops and art galleries stay open until 21.00. For full programme and details see event website.
