The Istituto Garuzzo per le Arti Visive, which has for some considerable time enjoyed an excellent relationship with the Hafnia Foundation, wanted to share this project and is hosting – with the Municipality of Saluzzo, as part of the “Start/Storia e Arte Saluzzo” showcase at the monumental complex of La Castiglia – the exhibition entitled “China: Revolution – Evolution. Propaganda Posters (1949-1983)”.
This is the third time the exhibition is showing in Italy, and every time we are overwhelmed by the interest and excellent response from Audience and media. The Garuzzo foundation arranged an opening in accordance with the ample safety guidelines of the municipality in regard to the situation of Covid19, and had an attendance of 1000 visitor social distancing on the opening Date. The exhibition is officially recognized by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism, and has enjoyed massive hype in local and national newspapers and Art platforms online.

The Istituto Garuzzo per le Arti Visive, is a not-for-profit cultural body based in Turin. It was set up in 2005 with a view to contributing to the effort to raise the profile and make the most of Italian contemporary art through the organisation of national and international exhibitions, cultural exchanges between Italy and other countries, residencies, awards and projects geared towards emphasising the virtues of the visual arts as expressed in the work of established masters, emerging artists and up-and-coming youngsters.
Constituting a frame of reference in the field of contemporary culture, Istituto Garuzzo has been committed from the outset to its mission of “cultural diplomacy”, and is on the front line in collaborating with partner institutions that disseminate Italian culture around the world. Istituto Garuzzo stages its own initiatives, in large part financed by its founders, with support from public and private institutions and bodies.
Since 2009 the Permanent Collection and Exhibition has been open to the public at the museum complex of La Castiglia in Saluzzo. It plays host to works of contemporary art from the institute’s private collection along with works loaned on a free-of-charge basis by artists and gallery owners. In 2012, the collection was selected for inclusion in the luoghi del contemporaneo (“contemporary places”) network of national sites that embody contemporary culture, compiled by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism.
