For decades, Cubans have been used to the revolutionary slogan "La lucha continua," or "the struggle goes on".The concept, originally from Italy, brings leading contemporary artists to the island.The Havana space includes work from such names as Michelangelo Pistoletto, Daniel Buren of France, British-Indian artist Anish Kapoor, India's Shilpa Gupta and the late Greek-Italian artist Jannis Kounellis.Fiaschi says he had the idea of installing an art space in Cuba during a visit in 2014, when he stumbled upon the ruined shell of a 1950s cinema in the old Chinese quarter of Havana.Working with the Cuban authorities, he transformed the space and baptized it "Arte continua" to signify that, unlike its predecessors, this was not an actual gallery but more in line with Cuba's cultural centers.
