Casa Capra is an indipendent exhibition space of research and artistic production in Magrè di Ischio district immerse in some of the daily life places: between the newsstand, the supermarket and the town's bar.

The unconventional position aims at finding a different terrain, a space fundamentally outside the usual art circuits of the big cities, to tell new stories through the works of the artists themselves.


Careof Video Archive is born out from the passion of Careof's founder (Mario Gorni) and grown through the years, in 2006 obtains an important recognition by the Ministry of Art, which includes it among the Historical Archives of national relevance.

Careof's Video Archive now counts more than 7.000 titles: a reliable and priviledged monitor for a complete look over the production modes and artistic researches of the last years.
Many artists' works are preserved in its catalogue, starting from the first experimentations of the 70s to the latest generation's productions, plus documentation of exhibitions, conferences, performances and international artistic events among which are: Biennali, Manifesta, Documenta, Skulptur Projekte, enriched by interviews to the protagonists and the main artists, curators and critics.
