In April 2013 the Bottari Lattes Foundation opened a new art gallery in Turin, the Spazio Don Chisciotte, from an idea of Caterina Bottari Lattes.
The space has the name of an historic gallery in Rome, directed by Giuliano De Marsanich, which has been inaugurated by a solo exhibition of Mario Lattes in 1962 presented by Alberto Moravia. The Turin space has the aim of continuing with others partners the work began in Rome many years ago. Don Chisciotte means risk but also hope.
It seems the best way to remember Mario Lattes, a unique figure of intellectual in the Turin scene of the second part of Twentieth Century, a man able to critically observe his age, proposing a cultural model which is still actual and stimulating.
