The organization of the review is structured into a non-profit cultural association named “La Voce del Corpo Cultural Association” based in – Via Cavour 24. OSNAGO (LC).

Unlike past editions, no announcement is foreseen for participation in the 6th edition of the exhibition. The artists will be chosen and invited independently and directly by the Artistic Commission.

The theme of the 2020 edition is: “Beyond Ourselves and back – Freedom and Eros”.
