Historic home that has dedicated exhibition routes to artists such as Mimmo Paladino, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali and Francis Bacon. Sorrento Art Festival is part of the Sorrento Foundation’s international events, which usually takes place in Spring and hosts events and encounters to animate the exhibition days. The didactic, fondamental activity, affects many local schools, but also national and foreign institutes, attracting the attention of students from all over the world. There are also training sessions for foreign and Italian students.

The art works selected at the Event will be exhibited during the year in Syart-space, a gallery linked to the event, located at the entrance of the Villa Comunale di Sorrento, one of the most impressive place of the city.
