Database Carrara 2014 ___________ Talks and workshops and “conversazioni” on Carrara get underway – we post the April program


Database Carrara 2014 gets underway – and this year the events take place at the newly refurbished Palazzo Forti, one of the former sites of the prestigious Accademia delle Belle Arti of Carrara.

Palazzo Forti is located in Via Michelangelo Buonarroti in Carrara – and has recently been transformed into a creative space open to artists, photographers and graphic artists. The space is home to the events and workshops listed above, and will showcase other Database Carrara events in the coming months. It’s the brainchild of Federica Forti – a descendant of the Forti dynasty, and owner of the building – who heads the Ars Gratia Artis association which runs Database Carrara.

Visit Database Carrara’s website for more information, linked here.

And for more information about renting a space in Palazzo Forti, you can call: 347 0955010.
