Video artist Quayola has been commissioned to create a piece, inspired by classic Italian sculpture, which Peroni says will take viewers ‘on an immersive journey into the bedrock of Italian art and culture.’

In his work Quayola combines audio-visual performance, drawing, photography, and software programming and primarily he is interested in the boundaries between the real and the artificial, which sometimes involves animating paintings.

This has meant he’s been given access to access to masterpieces and the keys to churches theatres and museums across Europe, including Notre Dame Cathedral and The Vatican.

For the House of Peroni he is exploring the relationship between form and space, and has created a site specific video installation inspired by Michaelangelo’s Perigioni sculptures.

The space has been designed by architect and co-designer of the Enzo Ferrari museum Andrea Morgante. It features a cinema, dining and bar areas.
