Dario  Fo (Nobel Prize in Literature, 1997) presented for the very first time Charles Darwin’s life in a story commented by paintings, also of great dimensions, turning the often unknown  history of the scientist father of the theory of the evolution into a gigantic comic strip . The exhibition has been staged at the Palazzo del Turismo “Primo Grassi” in Cesenatico, from August 5th to  September 30th 2016. The Charles Darwin’s history narrated by Dario Fo became a book edited by the publishing house Chiarelettere.

In photogallery: some pictures I took during the exhibition in Cesenatico (Emilia Romagna, Italy).

THE BEACH IS AN ART GALLERY: 20 BEAUTIFUL SUNSHELTERS FOR THE 16th EDITION OF “TENTS AT THE SEA” IN CESENATICO (ITALY)

The sunshades in the past were the typical furniture on the whole beach of Cesenatico (Adriatic Sea, Italy). Before the introduction of sun umbrellas, big rectangular tents were hung on wooden poles stuck in the sand, in order to give shelter to tourists on the beach. Thanks to the intuition of Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo, in Cesenatico (Riviera Adriatica, Italy) these sunshelters have become big canvases for painting on, giving life to a real and unusual open-air art exhibition and an enchanting scenery.

Visitors and tourists, until September 8, have the way to relax themselves under the pleasant shadow admiring fascinating pieces of art. Each year, the open-air exhibition of sunshades is dedicated to the works of a different artist: the first one was Dario Fo (1998), followed by Tono Zancanaro (2000), Emanuele Luzzati (2001), Bruno Munari (2003), Federico Fellini (2006). In 2011 the exhibition was dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the Unity of Italy, with works created by poet, author and screenwriter Tonino Guerra. Last year the tents at the sea were dedicated to  artist Ilario Fioravanti. This year, the 16th Edition of the Tents at the Sea Show is dedicated to another Cesenatico artist, Tonina Cianca who recently passed away. The twenty beautiful tents are waving under the sun on the public beach (in Andrea Costa square) next to Cesenatico’s skyscraper. The incredible exhibition continues until September 8, 2013.
