The City Museum Bruneck-Brunico is the venue and part of the RIPIDO FESTIVAL during the summer months, alongside the Lumen Museum, the Ragen House, the „Alte Turnhalle-Vecchia Palestra” and the Art Cafè Pinta Bichl. This first edition of the RIPIDO Festival is dedicated to illustration and features Italy's best-known illustrators. Organised by the cultural association IL TELAIO and under the artistic direction of Giulia Neri, Federico Cano Correa and Camilla Mineo, this festival, with its exhibitions, lectures, artists' talks and live drawings, offers the opportunity to immerse in the world of illustration.

Marco Cazzato, Giulia Neri, Emiliano Ponzi, Andrea Serio and Elisa Talentino are the protagonists of the exhibition "Five Lines" at the City Museum Bruneck-Brunico, curated by the Caracol Gallery in Torino and bringing some of their nationally and internationally renowned artists to Brunico.

The “Alte Turnhalle - Vecchia Palestra” will host "Visions", a group exhibition of ten authors, Davide Bonazzi, Federica Bordoni, Ferdinando Cobelo, Elia Colombo, Federica Fabbian, Ilaria Faccioli, Goran, Maria Martini, Giordano Poloni and Ilaria Urbinati, curated by Illustation.it: ten different styles, ten works each for a total of one hundred panels: ten visions in which the approach to the image takes different paths and opens up new creative codes.

The Ragen House will host two exhibitions: a personal exhibition by Riccardo Guasco, "Ciclico", and a collection of the winners of the "Annual" of the association „Autori di immagini 2022“.

An extraordinary venue will then be the Lumen Museum of Mountain Photography on the Plan the Corones at an altitude of almost 2275 metres, where an illustration exhibition will be shown for the first time, entitled "Draw the Light". Is it possible to draw the light? This question was answered by the authors invited to the first edition of Ripido, who interpret the theme in their own way.

The Art Café Pinta Pichl is showing the fascinating solo exhibition of Marco Palena, an illustrator with an extraordinary talent for creating black and white works of incredible naturalness.
