On Google Arts & Culture to discover the Berlin underground art scene.
Giovanni Morassutti, the Italian actor, director and long time student and collaborator of John Strasberg who just finished filming Italian movie Fra due battiti alongside Remo Girone, has an art related project in the pipeline, too. Morassutti, who did also work with Ellen Stewart founder of La MaMa etc, Gus Van Sant and Roberto Faenza among others has been living in Berlin for quite a few years now where he had founded an art space called Art Aia - La Dolce Berlin, the German subsidiary of Art Aia - Creatives / In / Residence in Northern Italy Friuli-Venezia Giulia.

Thanks to a collaboration with Google Arts and Culture, the actor and cultural entrepreneur, together with his team, was also able to create an online exhibition tracing the work of multiple artists as well as offering users an insight into Berlin's independent art scene and its alternative spaces like the Institut für Alles Mögliche, Teufelsberg and the platforms of the U-Bahn with Hip Hop rappers like Killa Hakan. Musicians like Japanese composer Yukio Tsuji, visual and conceptual artists, illustrators, photographers, and directors of experimental films have joined this innovative initiative that thanks to Google technologies will reveal extraordinary details far beyond what is visible to the naked eye.

As Giovanni Morassutti says: «i am thrilled to have been invited to this fantastic Festival in Milan and I feel lucky to collaborate with Google Arts & Culture. Berlin is a city where art is considered a value, and it is respected and supported. I am glad to tell this story that also represents my path. I thank all the artists who have enthusiastically embraced the project. I am also happy to collaborate with Google by sharing its mission to organize information globally and make it universally accessible to all. I believe it is a huge step towards an open and transparent society. »
