Contemporary masters in Abuja

ROME, March 31, 2011/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- The festivities in Nigeria for the celebration of the 150th anniversary of Italian Unification began on 21 March with the opening in Abuja of a contemporary art exhibition: 30 works by Angelo Bellobono, Filippo Centenari, Fabrizio Cervelli, Stefania Fabrizi, Adriano Nardi and Davide Eron Salvadei, using both traditional techniques such as oil on canvas and innovative media on aluminium and plexiglass.

The exhibition was mounted by Marta Boeri and Marinù Paduano's M&M Contemporary Art, and was made possible through the sponsorship of ENI (through the Nigerian Agip Oil Company – NAOC) and a contribution from the construction firm Stabilini.

A reception at the embassy followed the opening, whose guests included the Minister for Women's Affairs and Minister of State for Energy of the Federal Nigerian Government. Also present were the ENI executive for Sub-Saharan Africa, the CEO of NAOC, and many other Nigerian institutional, civil society and press representatives, members of the Italian foreign service and other Italian nationals.

Ambassador Roberto Colaminè will host an exhibition in his residence on 30 March by Nigerian artist Ben Ibebe, accompanied by a reading of Nigerian poetry.
