Tuesday, 19 March 2024


Giacomo Erba's personal exhibition was presented on Tuesday 19 March 2024 at Stay On Board Art Gallery, on the occasion of the awarding of the works of the Zenato Academy Prize for contemporary photography.


Giacomo Erba (Milan, 2001) obtained the Zenato Academy Award for contemporary photography for the series of 5 works “Rizoma” (2022).


“We decided to reward Giacomo Erba - explains Luca Panaro, artistic director of the Zenato Academy - for the originality of the artistic proposal, an investigation into photography and nature with a scientific approach. We believe in the creativity of young artists and the awarded work stands out for its unusual iconography, which opens up new research perspectives on the photographic image."


Giacomo Erba is a visual artist, who attends the "New Technologies of Art" course at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts.


Through the Zenato Academy Award, in its fourth edition, the works Alinea 04 by Daniela Droz, Notturno 009 from the “Notturni” Series by Carola Allemandi, Serie Balloon by Enrico Smerilli have been acquired over the years, and have become part of the Collection of Zenato Academy.
