Bars: Sacripante Gallery by Giorgia Cerulli
Sacripante Gallery by Giorgia Cerull
When we go to an art gallery we expect to see paintings or art installations on a white, minimalistic background. Sacripante Art Gallery from Rome is definitely one of those spaces that will first catch your attention through its interior design, and secondly through its exhibitions.
Why Sacripante? The name comes from Cardinal Sacripante who built this building in the 18th century, as a convent. The architect Giorgia Cerulli was in charge with the dramatic transformation that wants to reflect the owners’ passion for art.
Located in an old neighborhood in Rome, Sacripante Art Gallery has an architecture that almost contradicts the history of the place and hosts 2 exhibitions each year, in the middle of a rough design, with industrial elements combined with 40’s furniture. Beautiful velvet sofas and bronze and glass coffee tables remind of this era, while the beautiful wooden beams reflect the ancient history of the building.
