The opportunity to boost creative contents through well framed and international initiatives in prestigious museum in the center of Milan: that’s the effort proposed officially by Luciana Matalon Foundation to our organization.
We’ve met Dr. Nello Taietti, president and director of Luciana Matalon Foundation in his office at beautiful exhibition space of the Foundation in the center of Milan near Sforza Castle, surrounded by fascinating artworks in a peaceful but exciting and professional atmosphere and and we collected his impressions about the recent launch of the Charter – It’s exactly what we intend to do as Luciana Matalon Foundation – Taietti underlines – and we were born to improve continuously our guidance in behalf of youth creative personalities coming to Milan to experiment and share perceptions and perspectives on cross cultural dimension.
The Foundation was founded by artist Luciana Matalon on 2000 with the aim of creating an exhibition space which could become an international “crossroad” of new ideas and the occasion for visual, emotive and intellectual enrichment.
The Foundation is already involved in high level’s international projects and it started on cooperating with Cathay Pacific as Gold Sponsor of prestigious Cathay Pacific Business Award.
With an interesting calendar full of activities and appointments confirmed by EXPO in Città, the list of events and exhibitions introduced by official channel of Municipality of Milan & Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Taietti and his staff willingly accepted the opportunity to support contents jointly and projects which follow the principles of the charter of values for your creativity.
We are really into international researches and cross cultural contaminations through arts and creativity – Taietti continues – and we strongly think that young generations got the energy and skills to make these cultural perceptions much more dynamics and useful for that concerns concreteness in behalf of contemporary society.
The Foundation contributes on our mission promoting exhibitions, meetings/conferences and initiatives of cultural exchange in their prestigious space according with parameters shared through the Charter of Values.
Beyond doing that the technical support offered by Luciana Matalon Foundation’s staff with deep and long experience in contemporary art’s environment represents a plus value for our organization on selecting, guiding and developing talents for the preparation of third edition od Switch on Your Creativity 2015 / 2016 which will be focused on multi- creative contents from Europe and Asia.
