The cultural association Arte&Arte since 1991, has been annually realising MINIARTEXTIL, a contemporary international fiber art exhibition, that up to its 26th edition has became a reference point for artists from all over the world.
Since September 2015, the association has a new main seat. An extremely adaptable space ready to welcome those who will enjoy discovering the world of contemporary art.
Our aim is to captivate people with a range of proposals such as exhibitions, concerts, conferences, film projections, live performances and plays, children workshops realized in cooperation with other cultural entities.
Furthermore, Arte&Arte wishes to be a reference point for researchers in the field of textile art, thanks to its archive that gathers thousands of images, texts, documents and videos, offering a wide panorama over the last 30 years of contemporary textile art.
Several times, the work conducted by the cultural association has been subject of studies and graduations thesis.

Ophelia. The garden of love is the title chosen by Giuseppe Coco for his exhibition, presented in Como’s historical Broletto building (located in the Cathedral’s Place), from the 21st June to the 14th july 2013. The artist invades the space with a series of artworks and installations inspired by Ophelia, the female character of Amleto, the Shakespeare’s tragedy. Ophelia is in love with Hamlet, the protagonist of the drama, written from 1600 to 1602. She becames fool as a consequence of the murder of his father by Hamlet’s hand, and ends her life drowning herself in a river. Giuseppe Coco wants to represent the dark side of love, imperfect, soaked by pain and anger. The project Ophelia. The garden of love ask the public’s involvement: all the visitors are asked to bring in the exhibition site letters, pictures, reminders, reflections, videos or drawings dedicated to love, to create their own garden of love.
