About us

SMMAVE Contemporary Art Centre is a cultural association based in Naples, at Santa Maria della Misericordia ai Vergini church, also known as the Misericordiella. We continue to clean, restore and promote this important cultural heritage site in order to make it a place for research, teaching and artistic production.

Our association is a new cultural aid which contributes to the development and renewal of our region. Working with us are art historians, architects, artists, photographers, restorers as well as cinema and theatre experts.

The artist Christian Leperino is the president of SMMAVE.
