“Il Sogno di Mo” (literally, Mo’s Dream) is a documentary by Italian director Francesco Dal Bosco about Italian artist and curator Monica Demattè, who has promoted contemporary Chinese art and artists to the world since the 1980s. Mo (standing for Monica), by emphasizing independent and free art expression,
has been a witness to the great changes that have taken place in the development of contemporary art in China during the past 30 years. She is one of the earliest curators who have introduced Chinese artists to Western countries, and who have brought Chinese artists’ works to the world-famous La Biennale di Venezia (the biennale held in Venice, Italy).
