Arts and culture are everything haute. Dubai’s first Italian art gallery will open its doors at Dubai Design District (d3) on Monday 26th October. A reputed gallery from Rome, Sconci will hold its opening exhibition this month to celebrate the launch of the gallery’s Dubai space. The Dubai gallery is led by Dr. Lorenzo Sconci, who identified the exciting art market in the region and saw an opportunity to bring key Italian artworks to Dubai’s growing art scene. The gallery will also provide a platform for local emerging artists and already heralds works by historic Arab artists in its collection. Pieces by Fateh Moudarres and Madi Hussein, two very important artists of the Arabic world, are to be exhibited alongside works by Andy Warhol and pieces from early 20th century futurism painters, Roberto Marcello Baldessari and Pippo Rizzo.
