Arte Fiera will again be flanked by the third edition of Art City, the programme of events developed in partnership with the city of Bologna and involving its museums and art venues in a city hosting important exhibitions looking at the underlying theme of the dialogue between ancient and contemporary. During the days of Arte Fiera, Bologna and its museums will be the natural stage for contemporary art. Exhibitions, events, installations around town and meetings will be the perfect corollary to the show at the trade fair, bringing it inside the city walls. The exceptionally full programme includes events organised by the city's major contemporary art galleries and an important review at Bologna’s Fondazione Cineteca (Film Library).
Art White Night on Saturday, January 24 when Bologna stays open at night will have hundreds of things going on and will attract tens of thousands of visitors, making Bologna Italy’s art capital. The full programme can be downloaded on the interactive map on Arte Fiera’s website.
