June 7-30, 2019 Opening June 7-8-9, 2019 Rocca Malatestiana, Fano (Marche, Italy)
Born in 2009 with the aim of promoting photography and contemporary art, Centrale Festival has come to its eleventh edition this year. During its early years, the festival welcomed several Italian artists well established within the art scene and showed them to the public thanks to a tight program of debates, conferences and guided tours. The venues of the exhibitions have strongly characterized the festival, concerning some particular landmarks of Fano such as Rocca Malatestiana, an ancient late-Roman fortress that became one of the symbolic places of the festival. The next edition marks a significant step forward and renews itself, starting from its name. Moreover, Centrale Festival 11 will now address the younger artists generations, selected through an international call, highlighting this way the will to broaden its interests and support emerging research connected with contemporaneity.
