The photographic exhibition with the most beautiful shots by the CCSR Le Grazie Club “Obiettivo per tutti” opened the 6th edition of Art Festival Recanati on Tuesday 5 July, whose final evenings are scheduled for 8, 9, 10 July in the historic center.
To inaugurate it, in addition to the artistic director Gian Luigi Mandolini and Roberto Bartomeoli of the photographic club, also the mayor Antonio Bravi and the councilor for culture Rita Soccio of the Municipality of Recanati, who together with the Marche Region granted patronage for the event. «A Festival that has the merit» said the mayor Bravi, «not only to animate the historic center but to create synergies between the different cultural realities through good communication. Congratulations also to those who set up the exhibition, inaugurating a truly strategic exhibition space, which embellishes the Tower and attracts many visitors ».
An exhibition, set up at the Civic Tower in Piazza Leopardi, to which the promoting association Whats Art is very keen and to which it owes a lot. The exhibition not only allows the Festival every year to create a space of historical memory of everything that happened the previous year, but also allows to keep alive the memory of Fabio Mariani, who was the creator of it and who, thanks to the synergy it has been able to create with the whole club, it has allowed Art Festival to have artistic photos every year that increase its prestige. Roberto Bartomeoli explained a bit how the Photographic Circle has changed after the loss of Fabio, and the willingness of all photographers to continue their commitment to the Festival in his name. Also present at the inauguration was Lucia, Fabio’s wife, visibly happy and excited about the tribute.
“We open the Art Festival with the by now customary photographic exhibition of the CCSR Le Grazie club which, through beautiful and meaningful images, testifies to us and makes us retrace previous editions” – said the councilor Soccio – “Networking between cultural associations citizens for the success of events is the right path that we are all following and supporting together for the common good of our community. On this occasion, our thoughts go to Fabio Mariani, the true driving force and cornerstone of the Club and of this special collaboration with Art Festival ».
