Curators Ludovico Pratesi and Marco Bassan have selected artists under the age of 35, who have developed an art project comprising eight works ranging from sculpture to painting and photography. The exhibition is an innovative project by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation  together with the “Cassa Depositi e Prestiti” Foundation , combines creativity, business, art and the slogan “Made in Italy” that was realized with the support of several cultural art bodies in Europe.  The exhibition was inaugurated at its station in Cairo at the Italian Cultural Institute in Zamalek, in cooperation with El-Biet magazine, and in the presence of Davide Scalmani, Director of the Italian Cultural Institute in Egypt, Paolo Palminteri, Head of the Economic and Commercial Office, Raffaele Bentangelo, Italian Cultural Attaché, and Sawsan Murad, Editor-in-Chief of El-Biet Magazine.

During her speech at the opening, Sawsan Murad, Editor-in-Chief of El-Biet magazine, indicated that the magazine always supports initiatives that support youth.  To open horizons and express our love for art, each of us in his own way and whether art is likely to be black or white only, or should it be diverse, different and renewed.

Davide Scalmani, Director of the Italian Cultural Institute, explained that the intrinsic goal of the exhibition lies precisely in providing the opportunity for eight young people to change themselves and introduce their work to the world, and as the Italian Cultural Institute we have enthusiastically joined the initiative, convinced that these works and the Egyptian public will be a mutual discovery.
