In 1922, Albert Einstein received the Nobel Prize in Physics due to his work on the Photoelectric Effect.
100 years later PitturiAmo wants to remember that important event through a conceptual connection with light, between art and science.
Light was extremely important for Einstein – for his studies on the Photoelectric Effect and the Theories of Relativity – as it is equally important for all the artists who use it to create works that go beyond the concepts of time and space.
MADE4ART is also a multifunctional space, a concept gallery capable of hosting events, exhibitions, presentations and cultural meetings: a showcase for new contemporary proposals.
