Cultural Association RO.SA.M.
The cultural association RO.SA.M. was founded in Venice in 2010 with the aim of promoting art and culture in collaboration with national and international artists and cultural operators, public and private entities, institutions and banking foundations.
Among the numerous activities organized in Venice for this purpose, the collaboration with the Venice Civic Museums Foundation for the creation of promotional videos dedicated to their museums. Furthermore the recent initiative undertaken with the master craftsmen of the Squero di San Trovaso, for the opening of the small private gondola museum and the literary prize "La Calcina - John Ruskin, writing about architecture". The price was created by the artist and film maker Marco Agostinelli, councilor of the association, in collaboration with the Ateneo Veneto and the Hotel Restaurant La Calcina ,which had its first edition in May 2018.
In recent years RO.SA.M. also pays close attention to cultural and artistic projects of environmental and social sustainability as evidenced by the "Mare Internum / The Table of Silence" project, dedicated to the theme of immigration organized in 2016/2017 at the Ara Pacis Museum in Rome under the patronage the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, the Embassy of the United States of America in Italy, the Municipalities of Lampedusa Linosa and Palmanova.
