Work in progress...

Dear friends and dear friends of Salone,

We would like to inform you that this summer there will not be the new appointment with the Salone in Bordighera. (Halit Kurtulmus, Palma d'Oro 2023 took it like this...)

The drafting and presentation of the volume "Smile, you are in Bordighera! The posters of the International Humor Exhibition from 1947 to 2023" of which we are particularly proud have unfortunately taken up the time and scarce resources of our Association. We have also made several commitments to present the book around Italy with a mini-exhibition. In fact, there are already 7 events ranging from Liguria to Lombardy and Tuscany... in short, we won't stop!

Stay tuned for 2025!

Salone Internazionale dell'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!
