Theme of the year: WINTER OLYMPIC GAMES
Of this edition we have only a few drawings to exhibit.
Adolf Born is awarded the Palme d'Or, Karol Seles wins the Golden Date for the Fixed Theme and Zoran Jovanovic designs the manifesto. Vincenzo Buonassisi wins the Palme d'Or for Humorous Literature with "Il Mangiautore".
An interesting round table on "Humor and Comics" is held with the participation of university academics and various humorists. During the conference Bruno Bozzetto presents a preview of the short film "VIP my brother superman".
On the evening of the award ceremony, the film "Asterix le Gaulois" is shown with the lashing jokes of Carlo Silva and Giovanni D'Anzi.
The Salone recognizes the artistic qualities of the participants in drawing and literature with several awards. Some prestigious institutions have wanted to add their patronage such as the Council of Europe, the Presidency of the Republic, the City of Bordighera and various other regional bodies and private foundations. The main prizes that are awarded by juries of outstanding personalities are the Palme d'Or trophy which represents the highest recognition for the Authors, the Golden Date and the Silver Date.
ASSOCIAZIONE SALONE INTERNAZIONALE UMORISMO
The event could not have lasted for over fifty years without the contribution of numerous "volunteers" and "precepts" who brought enthusiasm and desire to do whatever the task received, with nineteenth-century shifts! From the choice of the drawings, to the preparation of the panels (always the same every year), to the posting with various pins of the hundreds of drawings up to the presence on stage.
We therefore want to thank, in absolutely no order but with equal contributions, all those who come to mind, apologizing if we miss some, but we are ready to fix it!
