The III Biennale di Senigallia opened on May 18 19 20 2023 despite storms and access difficulties. The conferences went ahead smoothly, and the Senigallia public was out in force.

Here are a few images to illustrate the various activities that took place.

Solange Brand in conversation with Ines Plantureux, before the commented visit of the Palazzetto Baviera Pianoterra exhibition. The conversation continued in the rooms with the audience, sometimes passionately!

Lectures in English and French have been simultaneously translated into Italian, recorded on video and will be available online within a month.

The six exhibitions at the Palazzetto Baviera and Atelier 41 are on view until July 16, 2023 (the one at the Rocca Roveresca until June 12).

A virtual tour of the rooms is available on Biennaledisenigallia.it

On Friday evening, May 19, in the beautiful setting of the Rotonda a mare, a tribute was paid to Pierre Apraxine, the arbiter of world elegance and collectors’ photography, followed by a light meal featuring truffle pizza.

The Biennale di Senigallia will soon announce the creation of an annual prize in his name.

The video recording of the tribute to Pierre Apraxine and the lecture by Jean Poderos will be available online on June 20, 2023.

During the Biennial there were three photography workshops led by Senigallia artists Patrizia Lo Conte, Enea Discepoli, Massimo Marchini and Alberto Polonara. All workshops were well attended by the curious and the novice.

Collectors’ fair held on the Foro Annonario.

The few dealers and collectors present at the two-day fair left happy.

See you next time at the same venue (ex-Pescheria), on Friday June 13 and Saturday June 14, 2025.

Also at Rotonde a mare, the Biennial’s gala evening took place on Saturday evening, with a presentation of the La Muta Photography Prize.

The La Muta prize is the great novelty of this Biennale 2023: it is a photography prize open to all to propose future exhibitions. The candidates can win either a residence in Senigallia or an exhibition in Paris.
