Fondazione Pastificio Cerere

Gallery in Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo

An elegant former pasta factory that hung up its spaghetti racks in 1960 after 55 years of business, this is now a hub of Rome's contemporary art scene, with regular shows in the building’s gallery and courtyards.

The Pastificio came to prominence in the 1980s as home of the Nuova Scuola Romana (New Roman School), a group of six artists who are still here, alongside a new generation that includes Maurizio Savini, famous for his pink chewing gum sculptures.
