In 2007, two artists, Marco Raparelli and Stefania Galegati, disguised as the curators Norberto Dalmata and Scintilla Robina, develop together the curatorial project for a show that later took place in Milan, at the Care-Of no-profit space, and in Berlin, at the Uqbar gallery.
All the emails they send each other and to the artists which they try to involve; all their comments on everyday life and art experiences; all the documents to fill; all the photos; all the gossip and the poetry; the newspaper articles; the grammar mistakes; the further preciosities… the whole everything, from the backstage of an exhibition, has been collected, cut out and taped by hand into a book, then glossed by
some real-authentic, very sarcastic, Raparellistyle drawings.Finally, two nonexistent curators achieve a real exhibition. And the book is both a bizarre patchwork-tale, and a cathartic parody of the art world.

The two curators exist now, with own characters, life and future projects.
Scintilla Robina is a young curator, she lives and works in New York. Supposedly, she collaborates
with some magazines such as Donna Oggi, Fitness and Culture, and is art curator of the Diesel store in New York since 2005.
Norberto Dalmata is a critic and philosopher based in Rome. Supposedly, he studied at the Modern University of Siena, collaborated with many art magazines like Brufolo and Flash Art Slovakia.
