Quarenghicinquanta is a space dedicated to photography and is a reference point for temporary exhibitions, events and meetings with authors and operators from the images’ world.
An exhibition space wanted by Dario Guerini and Vincenzo Magni to propose authoritative Italian and international names of photography, but also a workshop where you can meet and compare experiences, will enhance young or unpublished authors, develop ideas and launch individual and collective projects with the intention of promoting a free, innovative, and not just historical photography. Quarenghicinquanta is also a mixture of photography and other languages such as literature, poetry, architecture, contemporary art, design and music.
The comparison between different ways of thinking and doing photography is a constant figure of our programs. Differences in gender, generations, technique and vision will oppose and cross through exhibitions, projects and thematic meetings.
Special attention is given to magazines and books related to the world of images, which members can browse in the reading and work wi-fi area.
The space is managed by a non-profit association, open to members or friends of photography, who must sign an annual pass. Members in particular are entitled to: free access to the library space; meetings with authors, printers, publishers and operators of the universe that revolves around images; purchases at popular prices of limited editions of the exhibits; discounts for courses, workshops, magazines and books; participation at projects, jam sessions and photographic group visits to exhibitions and photographic exhibitions.
Programming and quality control activities of Quarenghicinquanta are owned by an artistic committee composed of Mario Cresci, Virgilio Fidanza, Dario Guerini, Vincenzo Magni, Francesco Pedrini and Luigi Vegini.
