Edoardo Monti has always been collecting art. Or at least since he was 14 years old. In the past decade and a half, Monti’s passion for contemporary art has evolved into a full time commitment – Palazzo Monti, an artist residency program in Brescia, Lombardy. In this episode, we walk around Palazzo Monti, a 13th century palace with Edo.
Contemporary art is conceptually a living organism whose enjoyment requires almost every sense. It’s about gut reaction and storytelling. It’s about the mood you bring into the space and the mood the space transports you. And there is no better way to experience than than visiting an artist residency program where you come face to face with the how’s, why’s and real time of art making.
