H19:00 Book launch of ORTO: by invitation
H21:00 open air DJ set: free entry

Every year, Istituto Svizzero invites six artists and six researchers to a unique residency experience, Roma Calling. Over the course of ten months, a multidisciplinary community forms, looking beyond each resident’s own field of expertise in the midst of an international network of academies, art institutes and universities.

Last March, life inside the villa and its garden was put on a long halt due to the arrival of the virus. The final event, which marks the end of the residency, has therefore been transformed this year, into a publication, which proposes an imaginative journey through the residents’ garden, intended as a physical and metaphorical space to share thoughts, studies and artistic research.

ORTO is the result of a collaborative zeal between art and science and highlights the common desire to cross barriers and overcome distances, albeit symbolically. Conceived in singular circumstances—swift e-mail exchanges and long video calls— the book contains heterogeneous materials able to reproduce the fellows’ experience.

ORTO has been designed and published by NERO, Rome.
