Questa Non È Arte – This is Not Art Festivals

Questa Non È Arte – This is Not Festivals and events are promoting emerging, indie artists in Italy and in London.
Our main goal is to create a community of artists, bringing them together for events and festivals in non-conventional places such as pubs, cafes and Italian typical Osterias, to bring art back to people.
People don’t expect to find artists in the places where they usually hang out. But art should be there, among people, where people are having fun.
