LOCALES is a curatorial platform founded in Rome by Sara Alberani and Valerio Del Baglivo during the first lockdown in Italy in 2020, to reflect on artistic practices in the public sphere.

Starting from the political and social history of symbolic places in the city of Rome, LOCALES addresses the complexity of contemporary urgencies through a series of site-specific programs that include commissions for new artistic works, explorations in the public space, educational activities and performances.
