The exclusive collaboration between the hotel and Galleria Continua has given rise to a rich program that brings Italian and international audiences closer to the masterpieces of the best exponents of the contemporary art scene. A rich selection of works by Pascale Marthine Tayou will be displayed along with the public spaces of the hotel, in order to allow visitors and guests to freely enjoy the art. The hotel thus becomes the ideal setting for the exhibition of pieces by the Cameroon artist (now based in Belgium) who has made the theme of the journey and the enrichment that derives from it, part of his stylistic code. Jungle Fever presents: "Big Triangular Stones" "Big Square Stones", and "Big Colorful Stones", colored blocks of granite placed on the wall of the Sala Borromeo, which is located to the right of the lobby; "Colonne Coloniale" a 3-meters-high column made of pots and surrounded by small Murano glass statues, depicting the inhabitants of an African village; "Cristal Masks", wooden and glass masks; Totem Cristal", in crystal and mixed materials and"Shanghai Colonial", wooden sculptures.

About Galleria Continua
Galleria Continua opened in San Gimignano (Italy) in 1990, the result of the initiative of three friends: Mario Cristiani, Lorenzo Fiaschi and Maurizio Rigillo. It was the first foreign gallery with an international program to open in China in 2004 and three years later, in 2007, inaugurated in the Parisian countryside Les Moulins, a new peculiar site for large-scale creations. In 2016 the gallery embarked on new paths, opening a space in La Habana, Cuba, devoted to cultural projects designed to overcome every frontier.
