Lunetta11 is an art gallery established in 2019 from the will of Francesco Pistoi and Claudia Zunino to bring contemporary art in an ancient village of the Langhe region. Since 2022, it has been taking care of the exhibition program of Casa Gramsci in Turin, in collaboration with NH Carlina and Istituto Gramsci.
Guided by the behaviour of the liverwort plant called Marchantia Polymorpha - a plant that tends to grow after the earth has been disturbed - the collective reflects on the ways of deep coexistence with different ecosystems.
