The first important appointment of the project / little constellation / a vision of contemporary art in geo-cultural micro-areas and small states of Europe will attend in Milan.
The international network for contemporary art /little constellation/ was born from the idea of two artists of San Marino, Rita Canarezza & Pier Paolo Coro with the support of the Foundation San Marino, the indispensable collaboration of the Social and Cultural Activities Office, which was also recently added  to the help of Ente Cassa di Faetano, and  with the sponsorship of the Department of Culture, Department of Sport and Free Time, Department of Tourism, Territorial Marketing and Identity of the City of Milan, for the creation and the spread of projects  especially attentive to the artistic research in small states of Europe, Andorra, Cyprus, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino and some micro geo-cultural realities of the European markets including Canton Ticino (CH), Ceuta (ES), Gibraltar (UK), Kaliningrad (RUS). 

The realization of the exhibition /little constellation/ is the need to give a concrete vision of the research project, artistic operation itself; the meeting of more than 20 artists from the countries concerned, with the support of many of its cultural institutions, the involvement of Milan and two of the most important realities for the promotion of contemporary art as Careof DOCVA and Documentation Center for Visual Arts, is definitely a shift towards new strategies of cooperation and sharing of international contemporary art.
