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.
VIASATERNA is a two-level gallery in a late 19th century building. The premises were carefully designed and refurbished by architect and collector Flavio Albanese.
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.

The exhibition programme of the gallery is the result of cooperation with the Fantom team and Benedetta Pomini. Starting from a specific interest towards photography, Viasaterna explores every other forms of contemporary art.
