Mumble Mumble is not the title of a show. 
Mumble Mumble is the name of a container that will be periodically filled by a group of young artists suggested by a young curator. 
Mumble Mumble was conceived by Francesca Bertolotti and Olivia Restelli and supported by the will of Raffaella Cortese to create new opportunities of production and exposure for young Italian talent. 
Mumble Mumble is the noise of thinking: it is the sound of our brains searching for connections between the works.
