VIASATERNA was created in 2015 on the initiative of Irene Crocco, founder in 2011 of the project Da vicino, in which she exhibited the artworks of various Italian artists in her Milanese apartment.

The gallery name is inspired by and pays tribute to Via Saterna, an imaginary street described by Dino Buzzati in his “Poema a Fumetti”, (1969, Arnoldo Mondadori). A world in which dream and reality intertwine in a tapestry of people, destinies, lives and imagination. From this magical and mysterious atmosphere, Irene Crocco drew the inspiration to create a gallery that, through art, becomes a living crossroads for people and ideas.

Starting from a specific interest towards photography, also thanks to the contribution of Fantom curatorial platform, today Viasaterna explores every other forms of contemporary art with the collaboration of Anna Vittoria Magagna.
