The exhibition offers a series of initiatives aimed at the artistic-cultural promotion of Albania with the presentation of art and photographic exhibitions, conferences and debates in which both the President of the Albanian Republic Bamir Topi and the Mayor of Rome Capitale Gianni will be present Alemanno.Albania has a unique culture in Europe, the Ottoman Empire ruled the territory for almost five centuries, and this is reflected in the country's works of art. In this period Arab art, like mosaics and murals, became the prevailing art form and this changed only after the 1912, the year of Albanian liberation.
After the Second World War the communist government influenced much of the Albanian art. The government censored much of the Albanian art of the time and tried to ensure that the artists created works that represented socialism in a positive way. During the years 50 and 60 the main theme of the Albanian art was the proletariat. Many of the paintings of this era were of Albanian landscapes or represented both male and female workers. Vangjush Mio was a painter famous for his paintings of Albanian landscapes.
Today, although much of Albanian art is influenced by impressionism and expressionism, art focuses on the representation of everyday life. Contemporary Albanian artists capture the difficulties in the lives of the Albanians, using always different styles, their art continues to evolve, remaining always unique in its content and its style.
