closed The magical realism of Mario Giacomelli

The show

In a redeveloped portion of Palazzo del Duca, which for years has hosted the exhibition program of the city of Senigallia, around 80 photographs are available, selected and set up in collaboration with the Giacomelli archives represented by the two directors Simone Giacomelli and Katiuscia Biondi.

A permanent exhibition that wants to tell the poetic and artistic universe of the great Senigallian photographer and make it permanently accessible to citizens and visitors. Furthermore, we want to provide an innovative reading of the master's work which is not proposed in an anthological way, that is, for years and series, but retraces his poetics, highlighting themes and suggestions.

The salient trait of the personality - private and photographic - of Mario Giacomelli is the strong rootedness to his land, reluctantly he moved from it, but despite this he succeeded right away through his art to overcome geographical borders being his work characterized by a strong spirit of experimentation and a voracious will to research. Mario Giacomelli was born on 1 August 1925 in Senigallia, he was an Italian typographer, photographer and painter; known in particular for his shots in Black and White. Real and surreal mix in the images of the photographer and are dressed in deafening, reflective silence and a melancholy poetic. Mario Giacomelli died on November 25, 2000 in Senigallia.
