LAST DAYS IN RIMINI (ITALY) FOR THE FIRST DRAWING BIENNIAL: 20 EXHIBITIONS AND 1.000 WORKS ON DISPLAY

Great success in Rimini for the first edition of the Biennial of Drawing which will run until next June 8. One thousand drawings are 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 have been set up in interesting places transforming the city into the capital of drawing.

The event also gave 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.
