A name that embodies what BIUMOR was and what it will continue to be for the city of Tolentino and its international success. "We have to changein order to cherish what's important. – said Ercoli – After the success of our International Biennial exhibition of Humour in Art is clear that it only lives by contemplating the complexity of the new contemporary languages. We want to bet on its future in order to find a starting point and investigate humour all-round". From here the motto BIUMOR every year, BIUMOR all year long". On 4th November we talked about the painter Depero in a meeting organised in collaboration with Unitre. The installation of Matteo Catani, that already intrigued hundreds of people during the exhibition at the end of August, will also come back in December. It is a preview of the 2016 scheduling, but the brand new events are the days of May dedicated to Napoleon: the new festival called Bonapartour is going to investigate the Napoleonic wars adopting a pop interpretation. The summer of 2016 doubles the dates: in mid-August, precisely from 19th to 21st , BIUMOR will enliven the inner city of Tolentino, a week before the Popsophia reviews at the castle of La Rancia. The interventions of Mirella Valentini, director of Unitre Tolentino, Giorgio Leggi, important personality of the Biennial exhibition and Maura Gallenzi, from the cultural office of the city , crowned the previous words of the BIUMOR director. And Maura Gallenzi also added:"Committment, imagination and competence are our first rule at the office. The BIUMOR project has been developed in spite of many complications and thanks to everyone's dedication". Also the intervention of Lucrezia Ercoli, art director of Popsophia, has been essential in order to remember that "the audience and the guests shared with us a merry atmosphere and the unique character of the event. The language of philosophy throughout the modern world is based on experimentation. The innovative dates of our festival made it a model for others and allowed us to reach the national public even in the absence of economic resources". The International Biennial exhibition of Humour in Art and Popsohia are characterised by a synergy that allows us to suggest the way forward also when it comes to other national realities. "Others imitate us, we are a role model – continues Ercoli – that can only mean that we are on the right track".
The meeting has been closed by the mayor of Tolentino, Giuseppe Pezzanesi, and the culture town councillor, Alessandro Massi, who wanted to mark again the success of an initiative developed in some seriously difficult economic conditions: "We did everything with an extreme openness, we've spent no money in this initiative thanks to the sponsors and we won the challenge. BIUMOR has an incredible cultural and tourist importance, and for this reason we are going to keep on doing our work in the direction that the outcomes of this year indicate us".
