This invitation is reserved for professional cartoonists, illustrators and artists.
During the month of August, as part of the "International Humor Show 2022: The Retrospective", two selections of car drawings will also be presented. One dates back to 1957, when the imposed theme principle was first introduced, and the other to 1994, when the car was chosen as the subject of the year for the second time.
Today we are curious to discover how humorists interpret, in 2022, this essential medium that evolves over time.
For this reason the Associazione Salone Internazionale Umorismo® a non profit organisation, solicits your imagination to drawings on the theme:
A selection of the works received will be part of the exhibition to be held from 6 to 28 August in the former Anglican church of Bordighera.
A second gallery of drawings, this time virtual, will be opened on the official website of the Salone: www.saloneumorismo.com and on some social networks.
At the same time, on the occasion of the Bordighera Book Festival held in August, Paola Biribanti presents a preview of her book dedicated to the fabulous history of the International Humor Exhibition which lasted more than half a century. Paola tells, thanks to numerous testimonies, this extraordinary human adventure scripted by Cesare Perfetto and rendered in images by thousands of creators who have come over the years from all over the world, including many international stars ...

For the Associazione Salone Internazionale Umorismo®
Gigia PERFETTO, Secretary General
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!
