From June 6 to July 7, 2013, the 16th Biennial of young artists, Mediterranea16, will be held in the city of Ancona. Since 1985 the multidisciplinary international event has been held every two years in a different city of the Mediterranean in order to foster a dialogue between cultures through art and encounters between young creators. San Marino has participated since 1992, through its Social and Cultural Activities Office, which is a partner and co-founder.

This is a particularly successful edition for the Republic of San Marino, which will present no fewer than 18 new productions by young people under 35, among the 250 artists selected in the various artistic disciplines.
The Republic of San Marino will be represented by: the cultural project Radio Rising Network by Paolo Bartolini; the visual arts work and dj-set Admiral Point Centre by Viola Conti; the visual arts installation Gente di confine by Michela Pozzi; and finally /tiítano/, a project by Little Constellation, the San Marino network for contemporary art, including the young citizen of San Marino Simone Rastelli, together with other young artists from the ten geo-cultural micro-areas of Europe.

The BJCEM Association, with its 74 member countries and partners from Europe, the Middle East and Africa, is the principal showcase for the creativity of young artists in the Mediterranean euro area.
This year, in order to ensure a higher quality of artists and works exhibited, an international team of young curators replaced the customary jury nominated at the national level for each BJCEM partner. Seven outstanding figures were appointed to select all artists: Charlotte Bank, Nadira Laggoune, Delphine Leccas, Slobodne Veze/Associazioni sciolti, Marco Trulli, Claudio Zecchi and Alessandro Castiglioni, the last-named being chosen by the Republic of San Marino.
This is a profound change that clearly reflects the concept of the 2013 Biennial: Errors Allowed. ďThe theme alludes to artistsí ability to reinterpret their role and creative spirit at a time when the points of reference have failed and the processes of creation need to be reinvented. It is time to experiment, to learn by trial and error and seek innovative solutions. A search that takes place with the mediation of territories, cultures, people and communities.Ē
