Michelangelo Pistoletto, one of the most prominent artists today, accompanied by Manuela Gandini the curator of Third Paradise, his wife Maria Pioppi, Ambassador of Italy Nicola Minasi and a representative of the Embassy of Italy in BiH visited the Gallery 11/07/95.

During his visit, Pistoletto emphasized on how: “We have to present a solution for a change. People have to understand that the memory is a key, but we also have to do something new, we have to find a new solution.” He said how precisely this tendency which seeks the ways of how memory can be turned into something productive is visible in the Gallery 11/07/95.

Tarik Samarah presented a monograph Srebrenica and one of his photographs as a gift to Mr. Pistoletti. This visit is announcement of the future collaboration between artists, as well as the collaboration between Gallery 11/07/95 and the Foundation of Mr. Pistoletti.
