The rapid spread of the most recent pandemic variant in Italy is causing widespread worry and uncertainty in the trade fair sector. 

In light of this situation, and after consulting with the galleries, BolognaFiere announces that the 45th edition of Arte Fiera will not be held on 21-23 January, but will be rescheduled. The new dates will be announced as soon as possible, and in all cases in the near future. 

As Antonio Bruzzone, BolognaFiere’s CEO makes clear, “This was obviously not an easy decision. It was made primarily out of regard for our gallerists, who expect an event that lives up to its tradition and standard in terms of participation by the public and by professionals. We are certain that we will find a place on our fair calendar so that Arte Fiera 2022 may be held with the best results for gallerists and collectors.”
