On 20 June 2024, at 6.30 p.m., Chiara Pirozzi and Simona Da Pozzo will trigger conversations with their guests starting from the publication ‘It’s raining gods (& Goddesses)’.

After the homonymous exhibition at the Archaeological Museum of Naples, the permanent intervention at the Liceo Vico and the opening action of the Maggio dei Monumenti, the Body of Naples, aka Nilo, returns to the stage with a meeting dedicated to the people who have contributed to and supported Simona Da Pozzo‘s Atlas of Bodies research over the last few years.

On this occasion, the artist will hand out copies of the publication “It’s Raining Gods (& Goddesses)”, published by Ex-voto, from which Chiara Pirozzi, with the complicity of Maria Corbi and Francesca Amirante, will trigger conversations with the invited guests on the most recent developments of the Atlas of Bodies research articulated around the Body Monument of Naples.

“It’s Raining Gods (& Goddesses)”, texts and images: Chiara Pirozzi, Maria Diletta Pubblico, Gabriella Russo, Nicola Ciancio, Amedeo Benestante and Simona Da Pozzo. Atlas dei Corpi series, ed. Ex-voto, limited edition of 50 copies, printed book in English with illustrations, A5 format printed on recycled paper, 92 pages isbn 9791221064810


Ex-Voto realises complex projects focusing on active socialisation, co-creation and networking as tools for enhancing the activities and resources of the territory and communities. This is the case of Rooms’ Contest (a competition for inhabitants of shared flats that investigates the relationship between private and public space), the Non Riservato Talks (discussion tables between inhabitants, cultural operators and institutions) that give rise to Non Riservato (a network project with a productive vocation of realities that act in Milan’s public space in creative ways) the screening project Action Frame that anticipates the international video art residency project Camouflage, the talk Conversazioni Domestiche per Azioni Pubbliche (aimed at sharing practices where creativity becomes a tool for social transformation), as well as projects in the curatorial and artistic spheres such as Borderlight, Hacking Monuments, A New Hymn 4 New Neapolis, Glocary and others.

SuperOtium is a house in the heart of Naples, founded by Nicola Ciancio and Vincenzo Falcione, designed to welcome tourists, artists, travelers, and creatives. A meeting place where artist residencies, events, exhibitions, and accommodation coexist to inspire artists and creatives and challenge the assumptions of travelers, proposing new perspectives through which to view the city. The SuperOtium residency program has hosted, among others, Kensuke Koike, Pietro Gaglianò, Massimo Uberti, Hypereden, Bianca Felicori (Forgotten Architecture), Paz Ortùzar (in collaboration with the Cervantes Institute of Naples), Giovanna Silva (in collaboration with Lorenzo Xiques), Nuvola Ravera (in collaboration with Made in Cloister), Blase (in collaboration with ShowDesk), Yasser Almaamoun (in collaboration with the Goethe Institut), Khaled El Mays (in collaboration with Edit Napoli).
