Roberta Melasecca

Roberta Melasecca (1971) graduated in Architecture with honors from the University "G. D’Annunzio” Chieti-Pescara. She worked as a freelancer for 15 years in the field of restoration and architectural survey. 
In 2012 she began working in the communications sector, writing articles in various online and printed magazines and curating the press and communication office for events and architectural studies. Also in 2012 she became head of the press office of the AIAC Italian Association of Architecture and Critics, of the editorial staff of the magazine and in 2013 art director of Interno 14, an exhibition space in Rome. She also began curating exhibitions and artistic and publishing projects.
Since 2015 she has been carrying out an intense press office activity in the art and design sector, founding the Melasecca PressOffice agency, taking care of the communication of hundreds of exhibitions, events and awards throughout the national territory. She collaborates with curators, artists, journalists, galleries, building networks and connections between different disciplinary areas.
From 2018 she directs Interno 14 next, a widespread interdisciplinary patronage project.

Interno 14 was born in 2013 in the heart of the Esquilino district in Rome, on the initiative of a non-profit association AIAC - Italian Association of Architecture and Criticism, with the aim of promoting contemporary talents and expanding disciplinary boundaries, aiming at interaction between different areas. Starting from architecture, in a few years, it has opened its doors to emerging and non-emerging artists, hosting exhibitions and events of art, architecture, design, book presentations, talks with characters in the field of culture, aiming at a broad dialogue between all artistic disciplines and collaborating with artists and curators who work in Rome with continuity. It was directed by the AIAC, the president of the association Luigi Prestinenza Puglisi, and by Roberta Melasecca, press office and curator.

Interno14, after 5 years of intense activity (with about 94 exhibition projects) inside the walls of the apartment located in Via Carlo Alberto in Rome, it becomes Interno 14 next: it now begins to cross the inclusive area to open up to the construction of networks, connecting various art operators - curators, artists, gallerists, scholars -, to generate a diffused mesh that can go beyond metropolitan boundaries and fit into a more European and international mechanism.

Interno 14 next is a project conceived and carried out by Roberta Melasecca, art director, curator and press, and relies on the collaboration of artists, curators and various realities.
