      Lots of Junior Members and a couple of Juve stars visited Artissima Junior as Artissima got underway at the Oval Lingotto

      The 2018 edition of Artissima was officially inaugurated at the Oval Lingotto on Thursday – but this year’s event is extra special. 

      For the very first time, Juventus have teamed up with Artissima to create Artissima Junior, a special initiative dedicated to children visiting the event. Artissima is organised by ZonArte, the network bringing together the education departments of the leading contemporary art institutions in Piedmont, with support from the CRT Foundation for Modern and Contemporary Art in Turin.

      Starting today, Artissima Junior enables children to contribute to the creation of a special art installation: Il Giardino [The Garden]. The hope is that the installation will help the children to understand the extent to which contemporary art can transform their day-to-day lives and indeed the world we all live in. On Thursday, over 80 Junior Members – led by Argentine artist Alek O. – began to assemble the installation, which will be completed over the coming days by children between the ages of six and 11.

      Much to the delight of the young fans, Juventus stars Federico Bernardeschi and Daniele Rugani came down to witness the fun.

      "It was a nice surprise for me to see the installation being created as a result of the children working together," said Rugani. "It’s something new and really nice."

      Meanwhile, Bernardeschi said: "It’s amazing to see how the children are managing to create such a wonderful piece of art by working together."

      The other big draw at Artissima Junior is a unique work named "Luisito Monti", created for the event by Alek O. The artist took a selection of Juventus scarfs, separated them out into threads of different colours and then stitched them back together again to create a visually stunning tapestry – in Juventus black and white, of course!

      Head down to Artissima Junior at Artissima, Oval Lingotto Fiere Torino, between 14:00 and 18:00 from Friday to Sunday.
