FROM TINTORETTO TO FELLINI / IN RIMINI (ITALY) THE FIRST DRAWING BIENNIAL: 1.000 ARTWORKS AND 20 EXHIBITIONS AS A “NEST OF IDEAS”

From April 12 to June 8, 2014, Rimini organizes the first edition of the Biennial of Drawing and puts a body of work unique in its kind on display, a route through very attractive places of this city devoted to art.

One thousand drawings will be on display for one of the most interesting art exhibitions in Italy: from Parmigianino to Kentridge, from Guercino to Fontana, from Tintoretto to Baccarini, from Hugo Pratt to Federico Fellini and from the posters by Dudovich to the contemporary artists such as Toccafondo and Nicoletta Ceccoli. More than 20 exhibitions will be set up in interesting places which will transform the city into the capital of drawing for two months. The event also gives visitors the opportunity to discover the oldest and most precious venues in Rimini’s historic centre, the heart of creativity and research. The City Museum, Castel Sigismondo, Palazzo del Podestà, the Gambalunga Library, FAR gallery of contemporary art, the Museo degli Sguardi (on Rimini hillside), Rimini Film archive and the Music Institute Lettimi are only a few of the places involved in this initiative.

In addition, two side exhibitions are housed within the walls of the ancient villages of Longiano and Santarcangelo, inland from Rimini: “Almost a century of design in the collections of Tito Balestra Foundation” is the title of the exhibition on display in the Malatesta Castle in Longiano and in the former Church of the Madonna of Loreto. The cartoonist Marco Smacchia is at the center of the exhibition in Santarcangelo in the Malatesta Fortresses.

  1. I’ve had this page open since yesterday evening. I absolutely love the variety of concepts that constitute drawing. So, so wish I could see the entire range in the exhibitions. As a special request, kindly post about this again.
