“How delightful are the pleasures of the imagination ! In those delectable moments, the whole world is ours; not a single creature resists us, we devastate the world, we repopulate it with new objects which, in turn, we immolate.” (Marquis de Sade)

The city of Senigallia just confirmed the dates selected for the conference and inauguration of the III BIENNALE DI SENIGALLIA : MAY 18-21, 2023.

Projects can be submitted until November 10, 2022, both for the conference and for the installations. Theme : Another brick in the Wall

Several exhibitions are already in progress. An elegant New York City woman artist has photographed ancient stone walls in Peru, Great Britain, Ireland, the Mediterranean, New England, and Kentucky.

Forty students from the Université Polytechnique des Hauts-de-Francehave been working since last Summer on the appropriation and poor treatment of neglected tangible photographic archives.

Several collectors from Brazil, France, Italy and Mexico will exhibit a selection of photographic prints that have been discarded in the dustbins of history and the market and that they have brought back to the light.


We also encourage persons who may participate in the art and vintage photograph fair to be held on May 18-21 to plan their trip and obtain hotel rooms as early as possible, since the entire Senigallia city fair will be hopping.

In early November we will issue a guide, a detailed description of the venue hopping of the city fair with a map of booths and shared galleries.

Another brick in the wall ?

New technologies have helped tear down old walls, the most famous and most symbolic being the Berlin Wall (1989). Cultural content is much more accessible, the content of books is scanned, everything is published online. So ?

Upon the 34th anniversary of the tearing down of the Berlin wall, one can ask about the nature of walls, an obvious obstacle though perhaps and also a stimulus for the imagination, the origin of all pleasures, as the divine Marquis reminds us.

When the Romantics dreamed with Volney about the remains of buildings torn down by the first revolutions (Les Ruines, 1791), we have been kept busy on social networks of the digital age.

Before destroying tangible archives that are now heavy and too expensive to maintain or move, the Biennale proposes the discussion of the fruition of photographic archives, with walks between stimulating and provocative exhibitions.

Stone walls, medieval walls, closed doors, digital walls, invisible walls, walls of indifference …

No online version is planned – no zoom conference, no virtual fair. Rather physical exercise on the beach and fresh water swimming, in person meetings, gastronomy and of course, music.

Just be there.

La fotografia è la più bella delle collezioni

Il Consiglio Comunale di Senigallia ha appena approvato l’organizzazione della terza Biennale di Fotografia.

Le nuove tecnologie hanno contribuito ad abbattere vecchi muri, il più famoso e simbolico dei quali è il Muro di Berlino (1989). I contenuti culturali sono molto più accessibili, il contenuto dei libri viene scannerizzato, tutto viene pubblicato online. Quindi?

A 34 anni dall’abbattimento del muro, ci si può interrogare sulla natura dei muri, un ostacolo evidente ma forse anche uno stimolo per l’immaginazione, origine di tutti i piaceri, come ci ricorda il divino Marchese.

Quando i romantici sognavano con Volney i resti degli edifici abbattuti dalle prime rivoluzioni (Les Ruines, 1791), noi siamo rimasti un po’ senza sogni, purtroppo molto impegnati sui social network.

Prima di distruggere archivi tangibili, ormai pesanti e troppo costosi da mantenere o spostare, la Biennale propone la discussione sulla fruizione degli archivi fotografici, con passeggiate tra mostre stimolanti o provocatorie.

Muri di pietra, muri medievali, porte chiuse, muri digitali, muri invisibili, muri dell’indifferenza…
