After an 18 month break due to you know what, Swatch Club organized an international Club Event for the exhibition 10th Anniversary Swatch Art Peace Hotel (01 to 24-OCT-2021) at the MAXXI Museum in Rome, Italy (the Swatch Art Peace Hotel Shanghai celebrates its 10th anniversary in OCT-2021). About 20 Club members participated at the event.
