Nino Franco Prosecco, presented by Terlato Wines, has been a generous in-kind sponsor of the new Center for Italian Modern Art in Soho since its opening last February 2014. CIMA serves glasses of the delicious Nino Franco Rustico Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG at all of its receptions.

The next reception will be the closing party for the current installation — featuring the Italian sculptor Medardo Rosso — this coming Saturday June 27th. Don’t miss it! Click here for more details.

The Center for Italian Modern Art is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting new scholarship and dialogue around Italian twentieth-century art. Founded by Milanese art historian and collector Laura Mattioli, CIMA is located in a beautiful loft in SoHo, New York’s historic cast-iron district. Each year, from October through June, CIMA hosts an installation of works by master artists often little known or rarely exhibited in the United States. CIMA also sponsors a fellowship program, which is open to art history scholars of any nationality, and hosts a variety of public programming throughout the year. CIMA’s first season (February 21 – June 28, 2014) was dedicated to the Italian Futurist Fortunato Depero, perhaps best known for designing the Campari bottle in 1932. Its second and current season (on view until June 27, 2015) focuses on Medardo Rosso, a contemporary and rival of Rodin; this show is the first in the United States to include a large body of the artists experimental photography and drawings alongside his better-known sculptures in wax, plaster, and bronze. CIMA’s third season, opening in October 2015, will feature the work of Italian painter and printmaker Giorgio Morandi.
