Rome, the Italian capital, in its futuristic fairgrounds will host from the 15 to the 18 May 2015 the 1st edition of RomArt, International Biennial of Art and Culture.

Roma Fair is a complex built in 2006 and it boasts the best modern and functional structural works. Its column-free pavilions with the most advanced technologies are rectangular, wired, conditioned, equipped with wi-fi, bars, restaurants and services.
The pavilions are connected by a 6-metre high walkway, which allow access from above to all pavilions and this access from the top makes the show for the visitors exciting from the first impact.
In any pavilion, closely connected with the exhibition, there is a conference center that allows all exhibitors, after a suitable advance reservation at the secretariat, to make conferences and / or presentations.
The exhibition center is served by a railway station with no-stop trains to and from Rome Tiburtina. It also has bank branches, tobacconist’s s and newsstands.

“Art is a common good, a solid foundation on which to build the culture and this applies to every place in which it is created. I am aware that, unfortunately, there are several structures, which provide art and culture, and which are nowadays self supporting. In Italy in particular, Government funds intended for such initiatives decrease more and more every day and this renders everything more difficult, but to contrast this we increase our commitment to allow the visit of an event like RomArt 2015, where the pathos of the works of artists who come from more than 40 nations must be affordable to everyone, is free “
