The exhibition Appunti di una Generazione #3 (Notes of a Generation) at MACRO Via Nizza in Rome is the third in a series on Italian artists who emerged in the 1990s. This episode is dedicated to Matteo Basilé and Gioacchino Pontrelli.

Matteo Basilé (Rome, 1974) develops stories through photography and video. The exhibition at MACRO presents for the first time the new series Pietra Santa, with fantastical figures placed in the famous marble quarries of Carrara.

The large canvases by painter Gioacchino Pontrelli (Salerno, 1966) interpret the objects that define the reality in which the artist and we all live.
