For the summer season of 2024, Senigallia, City of Photography, continues its commitment to promoting great national and international photography, dedicating this time an exhibition not to a single artist, but to a living and rich collection like that of Rita and Riccardo Marone: the common denominator of the selected works is the theme of the sea in its various facets, a thread that connects the Neapolitan origins of the collector to the Marche city known for its velvet beach. Deep as the sea, The collection of Rita and Riccardo Marone is the exhibition curated by Angela Madesani that will be hosted in the halls of Palazzo del Duca from June 29 to October 13, 2024, organized by the Municipality of Senigallia with the support of the Marche Region, in collaboration with the Cassa di Risparmio Foundation and the Marone collection, and will feature works by artists such as Luigi Ghirri, Mimmo Jodice, Franco Fontana, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Martin Parr, and many others. The project stems from the collaboration of the curator with Riccardo Marone, a Neapolitan lawyer who over the years has been councilor, deputy mayor, and mayor of Naples, and who is also the creator of the famous Art Stations of the city's subway: always a passionate and knowledgeable collector of contemporary art, in the last fifteen years Marone has decided to shift his interests more towards the world of photography, traveling and documenting himself through exhibitions and fairs not only in Italy. The Marone collection stands out for not following the trends of the time or the laws of the market but the tastes of its creator, who chooses only works that have truly attracted his interest, preferring in recent years post-war photography with a special focus on the so-called "minor" photographers, who for various reasons did not achieve the success they deserved in life and were often considered amateurs but who created important historical photographic circles like the Bussola group, from which the Misa Group later emerged, thanks to Giuseppe Cavalli and Mario Giacomelli. From these interests comes the involvement of Senigallia, City of Photography, for this exhibition that displays about 80 works, almost all made in analog and very few in digital, dating back to the last hundred years, in black and white and in color, both small and large format. The chosen theme, as mentioned, is the sea, analyzed in its many iconographic nuances, a transversal theme that manages to unite the Marche city known especially for its beach and tourism during the summer season, with the origins of Riccardo Marone who, born and raised in a house overlooking the Gulf of Naples, has always had the sea in his eyes and thoughts.
