We all find ourselves in a situation unparalleled to what we have experienced before. Health measures continue to evolve quickly across Europe and the rest of the world and Photology AIR too must shift and evolve its manner of working.
The current situation has an impact on the entire production chain of Photology AIR 2020 and therefore the date of opening that had been set in place. Photology first and foremost wants to ensure that participants and team members are working safely towards our second biennial program, as well as having the necessary time and conditions in order to build these programmes properly and to maintain a high level of quality.
Photology AIR Artistic and all partners involved in the 2020 edition, are currently investigating different scenarios in regard to new opening dates, that were initially planned on the 9th of May. After the 15th of April 2020, Photology will reanalyse the situation and aims to announce the new opening dates of Photology AIR 2020. Since last Monday the 16th of March 2020, we have temporarily closed down our office space in Bologna and kept open our administrative office in Noto (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will update you to the best of our capabilities. Our thoughts go out to all those affected by the COVID-19 virus and their families. We express our extreme gratitude to all those working tirelessly in hospitals and the care sector across the globe to ensure a swift collective recovery.
Stay safe and we will be in touch soon!

From 10 May to 25 October 2020
Photology AIR – Contemporary Art Park
Tenuta Busulmone, Noto, Italy
Photology AIR (Art In Ruins) is a new park for contemporary art housed in the thirty hectares of Tenuta Busulmone, few kilometers from Noto and inaugurated in 2018. Drawing inspiration from the theme of the “ruins” as a synonym of modernization, exhibitions and events are set up in the restored spaces without coverage of a nineteenth-century convent and along outdoor paths in various areas of the estate.
The two-year PreservAction project, now in its second year, presents events this year that develop throughout the season in four exhibition areas.
Exhibition Air, with a collective exhibition of international artists composed of installations, photographic works and site-specific interventions in the ruins of the convent; Belvedere, the only covered exhibition area with bookshop and project room, designed for the most demanding art collectors; Naturalistic Trail, a countryside path that leads the visitor to a “walking to art” action through a suggestive photo-botanical setting; Educational Trail, a project of workshops, creative workshops and exhibitions created by middle school children with the collaboration of Legambiente and the Municipality of Noto.
