From January 29 to January 31 2016 an intense weekend on art and culture will be held again in Bologna, with the fourth edition of ART CITY Bologna, promoted by the Municipality of Bologna and BolognaFiere with the coordination of the Istituzione Bologna Musei, under the artistic direction of Laura Carlini Fanfogna.

It will be a special edition to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of Arte Fiera with a full institutional programme of exhibitions, events and initiatives, which will be even richer thanks to the involvement of more institutions and cultural operators of the city.

More than 70 initiatives will be held in the 46 different locations open to the public, with free access or reduced price access for the holders of any Arte Fiera ticket, all the relevant information can be found in the guide ART CITY Map. The locations are accessible with the free mobility service ART CITY Bus.

ART CITY Bologna promotes the historical-artistic heritage through the intervention of contemporary artists who were invited to exhibit in significant places of the city. The exhibitions held in 2016 with the collaboration of some museums include: David Adika at Casa Morandi, Luca Lanzi at the Collezioni Comunali d'Arte, Andrea Salvatori at the Museo Davia Bargellini and Alberto Tadiello at the Museo internazionale e biblioteca della musica.

The special events for the fortieth anniversary of Arte Fiera include the Italian preview of the masterpiece film by Matthew Barney & Jonathan Bepler, River of Fundament, at Bologna’s Teatro Comunale and the project ARTE FIERA 40 which will span across the history of the most prestigious exhibition on Italian modern and contemporary art, looking into the future.
