The Fondazione Orestiadi- Istituto di Alta Cultura of Gibellina was born in 1992 to protect and promote the town’s post-reconstruction artistic heritage. It was founded and chaired by Ludovico Corrao until 2011.
The Fondazione Orestiadi conserves one of the most important collections of contemporary art in Italy.
It currently promotes and organizes the Orestiadi of Gibellina, an annual festival of theatre, music and visual arts which has reached its 35th edition.

Galleria X3 was born in Palermo in 2010, with the aim of promoting and developing contemporary photography. Over the years it has organized a number of exhibitions, meetings, presentations, lectures, and has become a dynamic venue for the fruition and circulation of contemporary photography, contributing to an understanding of photography’s different languages, and to a knowledge of photographic work.
