Traffic SpazioArteUrbania - gallery and art workshop in the historical center, in the beautiful Palazzo del Governatore, opposite the Chiesa dei Morti with its famous mummies! Along with the Palazzo Ducale overlooking the Metauro's gorge, a magical place, steeped in history and today dedicated to Contemporary Art. Signs and shapes interact with frescoed ceilings, past and present together, melodies echoing among the rocks of the foundations on which the monumental cellars are built. A place open to exchange and interaction between artists, documented in a lively on-line catalog. http://www.traffic.altervista.org
