Art is in the foreground of the restoration plan for Palazzo Valperga Galleani.
Indeed, it’s an integral part of the entire recovery project.
The design and creation of a specific body of artistic works for the building - which could also surprise and give pleasure to curious passersby - was commissioned to Richi Ferrero.
The artist’s creation is an original artistic pathway which includes the ‘Giardino Verticale’ (Vertical Garden), the ‘Giardino Barocco’ (Baroque Garden), ‘Come se a Torino ci fosse il mare’ (As if Turin were on the sea) and ‘La Maschera’ (The Mask). His project’s design arises from the significant intention to reinterpret the original Baroque garden as a reference to "dreamlike space", considered as a moment of refined and rigorous decoration of the public space. The original place no longer exists and can no longer exist, but its memory can be born again: in the uprightness along which it climbs, from the courtyard to the roofs, it currently lives as a garden-reference suspended in air.
