After the decision to postpone the traditional edition at the end of January, Arte Fiera 2022 has announced the new dates. The 45th edition, in fact, will take place in Bologna from 13 to 15 May, developing in halls 15 and 18 of the exhibition center, the same as in 2020. The choice of BolognaFiere, in agreement with the artistic director Simone Menegoi, was to reprogram the fair in the spring season.
The main objective of this decision is to ensure a safe and quality event, within which professionals and the public who have always attended the longest-running Italian art fair can meet.
Simone Menegoi underlined: “The location of Arte Fiera in mid-May was chosen because it fits without overlapping the calendar of major national and international art fairs. Also recalling the positive feedback from Art City in May 2021, we are confident that it will be appreciated by everyone “.
The binomial Arte Fiera 2022 and Art City
During the days in which the event will take place, Bologna will also be animated by the exhibitions and events of Art City, which has chosen to change its dates to maintain its le-game consolidated with the fair event.
Elena Di Gioia, delegate to culture of the Municipality of Bologna: “Since 2013, both events have shared a unified strategy for the enhancement of the artistic heritage of the city thanks to an integrated network strategy that involves public exhibition venues and private, galleries, historic buildings and public spaces in a fruition of the places that will spread throughout the city. This sharing, interrupted last year, resumes in this edition in May, in a new way of using the places and outdoors, and will offer both visitors to Arte Fiera and citizens of the metropolitan area a program particularly rich and stimulating culture to celebrate the joy of being together again with art and culture at the center of our communities “.
