COSARTE is an exhibition space open to all artistic and cultural events in the sparkling Garbatella neighborhood. It is founded by the artist Simona Gloriani, who in 2017 decided to devote herself entirely to an artistic project by creating a multifunctional space, in order to focus on her passion for art, culture and teaching. She chooses Garbatella as her location.
In Garbatella, the popular soul of characteristic residential buildings grouped together around a common garden, the so called “lotti”, meets the spirit of the streets full of small restaurants and bars, the student life of Roma Tre University, and the new creative face created by murals. In this peculiar context, rich in proposals and opportunities, the idea of connecting art with the neighborhood fits perfectly.
The goal is to bring citizens closer to contemporary art through an active and identity-based involvement. For this purpose, a neighborhood like Garbatella forms the ideal context, also by taking advantage of the growing tourist interest in the area.
COSARTE is inspired by this connection, and therefore stands as a Creative Space open to confrontation, to the meeting between artists and enthusiasts, to artistic education and dissemination.
The gallery actively collaborates with the City Hall and since its opening has been offering periodic group and solo exhibitions, art meetings, and cultural events.
