bottom: The online database Italian Area is created by Simply.it in 2000, and further developed by Undo.net at a later stage. It documents the Italian artistic scene, with
particular attention to the work of artists who emerged from the late eighties to the present.
The artists are chosen amongst those who are promoted by the most important organisations and those who have contributed towards the current art scene in Italy. The selection is a work in progress and is meant to be constantly updated.
