“On Saturday, June the 20th, the Opening Ceremony of the International Biennial for Engraving IX Edition took place in Acqui Terme: the event found widespread public backing with a strong participation confirming once more the success already shown by the 590 works which entered the competition, coming from 51 different Countries. The Ceremony started with the opening of the en plein air exhibition placed under the arcades in Via XX Settembre, next to the thermal complex and the Grand Hotel Nuove Terme: the exhibition structure, a plan by the Architect Antonio Conte, has been at the public’s disposal for 15 days. From June the 20th to July the 8th, Acqui Terme has been the location for meetings and debates held by art critics, artists, collectors and enthusiasts. The solution of the en plein air exhibition, already proposed on the occasion of the VIII edition of the Biennial, has come out to be an excellent and powerful instrument of popularization and diffusion of the art of engraving in favour of a wider and more heterogeneous public.”
