The Russian Centre for Science and Culture in Rome provided an interview with Vladimir Gusev, General Director of the State Russian Museum.
During the meeting, he spoke about Russian artists who came to the Apennine peninsula in search of inspiration and the exhibition "Divine and Avant-garde. Women in Russian Art", opened in Milan. This unique exhibition project represents the history of Russian art showing the images of women and their creations. It is a significant event in the cultural life of both countries. Also, the interview spotlighted new projects presented as part of the Cross Russian-Italian Year of Museums in 2021–2022.
