Russia is a very controversial issue. Someone still perceive the power of that old, socialist country, some other strongly criticize it and complain about its society and culture. On one hand you can see Russian millionaires emerging for their art and fashion purchases, on the other hand you can see the mass struggled by troubles like mafia, drug, prostitution.

Whatever you may think about that people writing wired letters, that for decades competed against USA without knowing any English word, you should be aware that Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, in Turin, in collaboration with Victoria – The Art of Being Contemporary foundation in Moscow, presented a major exhibition of Russian contemporary art, entitled Modernikon. Contemporary Art from Russia, in order to celebrate the Year of the Italian Culture and Language in Russia and of the Russian Culture and Language in Italy. Quite sad but definitely a must, until 27 february 2011.
