Numero Cromatico is a research centre established in Rome in 2011 by a group of researchers with a background in both visual arts and neuroscience.
The centre designs and organises innovative activities and events on the scientific approach
to art research. On top of this, in the past nine years, the centre produced exhibitions, talks, seminars, publications and workshops. Since the very beginning, the research centre has been also a publishing house and has been producing Nodes Journal, the only publication on the relationship between art and neuroscience.
In 2016, the research centre decided to repurpose a large 200 sq. m. space in via Carlo Caneva,
Rome – a former vending machine warehouse which then became a cultural area open
to the public. In two years, the group organised many cultural activities to which participated more than 2000 people from all over the world: artists, curators, gallerists, journalists, students and citizens.
In 2018, the centre moved its headquarters to the Pastificio Cerere, in Via degli Ausoni 1, Rome, in the heart of the historical neighbourhood of San Lorenzo.
