Cortona On The Move
The international festival dedicated to contemporary photography was born in 2011 from an idea of the Cultural Association ONTHEMOVE. The festival, in constant pursuit of original forms of visual communication, showcases the best international visual narrative productions. Every summer, the small Tuscan town of Cortona hosts events, workshops and meetings involving international professional photographers in the setting of the Etruscan village.
This museum’s history dates back to 1764 with Empress Catherine the Great and, since then, its collection of art has continued to grow, with over 3 million works and artefacts in its possession. It is no coincidence that the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg is considered one of the most important in the world.
One of Italy’s leading contemporary art fairs, Artissima is considered one of the world’s leading exhibitions for its exclusive, specialist focus on the contemporary art scene. Since its launch in 1994, the fair has been showcasing innovative international artists and reflecting key trends and directions in modern-day culture.

Querini Stampalia Foundation
An institution open to all arts, readings, trainings and a contemporary place.
