Art Tour - Galleria Russo
The common areas and the rooms of the Elizabeth Unique Hotel are adorned with works of art personally selected by Fabrizio Russo, owner of the historical Galleria Russo, the oldest modern art gallery in Italy, located a few steps from the Spanish Steps.
The protagonists of the collection are the young contemporary artists displayed in the gallery. They range from Enrico Benetta, who dives a metal cascade of letters in Bodoni, the typeface per excellence which over time has become the artist’s signature style, into in his works, to the refined iconography of bare trees covered with colours by Manuel Felisi, from the paper butterflies of Michael Gambino, patiently cut out by hand and pinned to the panel with pins and infinitely repeated on contrasting backgrounds, to the sumptuous night urban landscapes flooded with light by Tommaso Ottieri up to the conceptual "Stati" by Luca Di Luzio; in his works the nations shapes give life to abstract compositions made aerial and dynamic by the very light material of the Japanese paper used as support, passing through the dripping of Ilir Zefi.
The selection of works on display ends with portraits of composed beauty by Giorgio Tentolini, images of masterpieces of classical statuary that look like paintings but are actually airy bas-reliefs, made up of stratifications of light and semi-transparent materials: nets and tulle.
Our team will be delighted to schedule a dedicated tour with an artistic guide inside the hotel and at the Russo art gallery to get to know the artists' works.
