About"Paninaro" is the forthcoming solo show by the successful artist Ludovica Gioscia. Coming off the back of acclaimed group shows at the Andy Warhol foundation and the Miro foundation, Gioscia is developing a series of new works, utilizing the Paninaro phenomenon to create an anthropo...logy of consumption strategies. Paninaro is the name applied to the subculture in Italy during the 1980's famous for its apolitical nature and its twin obsessions with fashion and Americana. The scene developed in tandem with the vapid hedonism of the 80's, fostered by Reaganomics, Thatcherism and deregulation liberism. Their love affair with brands such as Fiorucci and Naj-oleari as well as their love of the latest pop sounds was referenced up by The Pet Shop Boys in their hit song Paninaro.
