An unmissable exhibition, unique in the world of contemporary art. Lucca is where a new artistic movement takes shape: Paper Art. The Indoor exhibition is set in the beautiful rooms of the Palazzo Ducale, with delicate pieces on the topic of the 2016 theme: Borders & Perspectives. An art form open to everyone, made of a material that has accompanied us every day since childhood.
