1974 – 2024: happy birthday Arte Fiera!

In 2024, Arte Fiera celebrated its 50th birthday: something that no other Italian art fair had achieved and that only two other fairs in Europe had exceeded. It all began back in 1974, when BolognaFiere decided to present (along with what was then called the Trade Fair) a small section devoted to modern and contemporary art. A brilliant idea and an immediate success. The first edition had only ten galleries; a year later, there were 200.
