Fontana Gruppo is a partner of Le Stanze della Fotografia, an initiative of Marsilio Arte and the Giorgio Cini Foundation, which brings the best masters of photography to Italy. This partnership is a journey to explore the languages of photographic art, of which the first stage will be “HELMUT NEWTON. LEGACY”. The retrospective will be held on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, in Venice, from 28 March to 24 November 2024 (curated by Matthias Harder, director of the Helmut Newton Foundation, and Denis Curti, artistic director of Le Stanze della Fotografia in Venice).
Fabrizio Fontana, Fontana Gruppo Member of the Board and Global Communication Director, says: «Our Group’s experience of supporting art comes from my grandfather Loris, a great enthusiast but also a patron of the arts. He helped to launch numerous contemporary artists. Our recent experiences include the book “The Cathedral of Work”, published in 2022, which contains the works created by the artist Maurizio Galimberti to celebrate the Group’s 70th anniversary. We are now thrilled to join the Le Stanze della photography project, which tells the story of the career of a protagonist of the artistic twentieth century.”
