Between giraffes, sailors, cannons and a lot of chaos, Saturday, December 8 we spent a great day dedicated to illustrators. At 3.50pm we were still trying to clean up our gallery because at 16 it opened “More”, the personal exhibition of Victoria Semykina (winner of the past edition of the illustration competition), presented by Anna Castagnoli. At 5 pm we moved to Santa Maria della Pietà for the opening of the exhibition Caos with the special section dedicated to Mordillo, “The tenderness of fear”. The Argentine artist has honored our city dedicating an illustration, one of his famous giraffe is measured in height with the “Torrazzo” of Cremona. At a certain point, a fearsome cannon, inspired by an illustration by Mordillo, was staged. That cannon had the goal of creating chaos in the hall to nominate the winners of the 14th edition of the Tapirulan illustrator contest: the Popular Prize was won by the couple Gianluca Patti and Bianca Sangalli Moretti, while the Critics Prize is finished in the hands of Joey Guidone . The 12 authors published on the 2019 calendar are: Emanuele Benetti, Inna Burshteyn, Giulia Canala, Beatrice Cerocchi, James Daw, Luca Di Battista, Joey Guidone, Irene and Irene, Marie Muravski, Filippo Spinelli, Laura Zani, Antonio Zeoli. Sunday 9 December at 11 am another appointment: an interview with Guillermo Mordillo who told his incredible career. The competition ends in this way, but the exhibition will remain open until February 3, 2019 in Cremona and then move to Genoa Nervi between March and June 2019. And there, as usual, we will make an appointment for the new edition!
