Interview with Deborah Schamoni, founder of the gallery Deborah Schamoni in Munich

Deborah Schamoni was trained as an artist but decided to become an art dealer. Since 2013 she has been running her gallery in Munich, a town that is better known for its institutional art power than its contemporary art scene. This is nothing to complain about according to the gallerist, who describes Munich as an unusual place for contemporary art, but one that has its plus side.

Interview with Corrado Gugliotta, founder of the gallery Laveronica in Modica

The city of Modica, in the southern end of Sicily, is a World Heritage Site, known for its Baroque architecture, its caves dating back to the bronze age, and its chocolate prepared according to a tradition that was inspired by the Aztec original recipe for Xocoatl. In this richly historical place Corrado Gugliotta has created a venue for contemporary art, a gallery in which he makes a statement through socially meaningful art.
