The "Urban Arena" project had its opening on June 6th, in Rome, Italy. An initiative of a.DNA Collective in collaboration with OFF, "Urban Arena" aims to rehabilitate abandoned cultural spaces through urban art interventions.
Their first event took place in the ex cinema Preneste / GPRV, from December 18th, 2012 to March 23th, 2013. Another space is Volturno Occupato, an ex cinema and theater, where the permanent exhibition is currently taking place.
