“Luca, criminal lawyer and Gianfranco, artist and writer, wish to transform their passion for contemporary art into their new job and decide to create a brand, Gallerie Migranti, to organize exhibitions and sales for collectors, in always different spaces and places, carefully choosing the artists to exhibit and researching the suitable location for the enhancement of their works.”
The artists involved and protagonists of the first two episodes are the Bolognese painter and illustrator Stefano Ricci and Giorgio Celiberti, Friulian painter and sculptor. Different profiles in history, paths and style, but both equally capable of captivating experts and enthusiasts with the originality and beauty of their art. Despite the quality of their proposal and the esteem they immediately receive, both from collectors and in the artistic environment, Luca and Gianfranco find themselves from the beginning to face unexpected and complications that put a strain on their business. Their competence and professionalism, as fundamental as passion, will be decisive in moving in an extremely complex and competitive reality.
In a media landscape where sales and negotiations are the heart of numerous programs, often conceived as minimal variations of the same formula, the SAVE THE ARTIST - L'Artista è Innocente series relaunches the originality of the theme and the style of the story, revealing the behind the scenes of the art market, its reference figures and its actors, making visible aspects and dynamics that never before are at the center of the world of art and its evolution.
