Jose Louis Albertini (architect) founded the Sintitulo gallery in Nice in 1990.
Inaugurated in the presence of Leo Castelli and under the artistic direction of Catherine Macchi, the program of the gallery cast for a decade, artists formed at Villa Arson art school.
In 2002, Sinititulo moved in the old village of Mougins. The focus was now on the pedagogy of contemporary art. Cultural education workshops for children were organized in relati to each exhibition and provided for free for pupils from surrounding schools. Meetings and exchanges with adult audience and professionals of contemporary art took place almost every Saturday in the salon of the gallery.
Today, under the direction of Cristina Albertini, the Sintitulo gallery develops a cultural program where contemporary art is the cataliseur. The theoretical and practical study of the cultural project, of the art market and cultural policies allow us an overview of the relation that our structure must develop with its georgaphical territory. The gallery’s activities diversified to to allow more exchanges, bring together various audience and encourage the emergence of new private collections. We wish to raise awareness of new collectors the role they have to play to encourage careers of young artists. In this sense, projects and exhibitions organized by Sintitulo now involve strategic partnerships whose purpose is to federate and allow exchanges between audiences who rarely meet up.
