For the Art White Night in Lunetta, taking place on June, 22nd, the artist proposes "The air inside. Track of visual memories", a backwards journey in her approach to art, which started with the meticulous and repetitive language of engraving and reached a free and immersive painting.

Cellar Contemporary join the 2019 edition of Without Frontiers – Lunetta a Colori, the Mantua Urban Art Festival with street art from worldwide known artists. The exhibition project is "The air inside. Track of visual memories", by Margherita Paoletti and curated by Camilla Nacci.
Inspired by Pirsig's book, “Zen and the art of motorbike maintenance", which was the theme of the Call for projects for the Lunetta district, Margherita Paoletti presents a series of engravings. The works belong not only to her own past, but also to a common past linked to some traditions, reinterpreted through illustration.

The exhibition’s aim is to create multiple exploratory possibilities. As in Plato's “Phaedrus" one approaches the world of ideas through beauty, in the artist’s works one meets his own inner wilderness of thoughts through aesthetics.
