Nero was born as a collective of artists in 2012, a movement of aggregation of young artists and graphic designers dedicated to multimedia art, photography and the digital world.
The idea becomes tangible in 2017, after the dissolution of the original group, and turns into the Nero – La Factory gallery, an independent exhibition space located in the historic center of Pescara, a meeting place for the creation and artistic diffusion that seeks to give a new perspective to the local cultural offer. An old typography finds new life, becoming a reference point, a cultural center that covers different emerging artistic modalities, creating a space made by and for artists and artisans. The Factory takes concrete form in a physical place capable of transforming itself, dedicated to modernity, emerging art, design and experimentation.

The project takes shape from an idea by Matteo J. Coccia, graphic designer. Born and raised in Italy, his studies are initially projected towards theater and scenography, at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, and then focus on design. He graduated from the European University of Design (UED) in 2014 and began his career as a graphic designer and freelance curator.
