Ten days of contemporary art events devoted to Alighiero Boetti, 20–29 May 2011. Turin and Piedmont.

Alighiero Boetti (1940–1994), one of the most enigmatic Italian artists of the 20th century, is the focus of this year’s Giorno per Giorno / Day by Day. The project consists in a calendar of exhibitions, video screenings, talks, and conferences taking place daily in contemporary art institutions throughout Piedmont from 20 to 29 May 2011. This celebration is aimed at creating a shared itinerant programme centered on the figure of the Turin-born artist. Nine leading Piedmontese museums, foundations and art institutions have originated a series of events that will culminate in the Alighiero e Boetti Day, a special twelve-hour tribute and symposium co-produced by Artissima and Fondazione Nicola Trussardi.

Giorno per Giorno is promoted by Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT and coordinated by Artissima.
