Volterra and Montecatini are hosting two exciting exhibitions of international artists participating in Passion for Life this summer, from 14-23 June and 26 June - 30 July respectively. Tuscany will be the protagonist of this double meeting of renowned artists who come from many different countries and who regularly exhibit their works world-wide. In February 2007, Passion for Life Art organized an important exhibition at the Maya Culture Museum at Chetumal in Mexico.

The exhibition will take place at the Logge in the magnificent Piazza dei Priori at Volterra, in the heart of the historic centre. The exhibition will then move to the Sala Portoghesi of the Tettucio Thermal Baths, at Montecatini.

Passion for Life Art organises exhibitions worldwide with the artists supporting Passion for Life, a charitable initiative launched by Antoine Gaber, artist and researcher, dedicated to the fight against cancer. The PFL programme is concerned with both fundraising for the research but also to increase awareness of the illness. For example, a gala dinner was organised on the terrace of the Grand Hotel Baglioni in occasion of the opening of the exhibition in Florence in June 2006. The funds raised were donated to the Meyer Foundation for the onco-hematological department of the paediatric hospital Meyer in Florence. At the exhibition in Mexico, in February of this year, conferences were held at three universities in the state of Quintana Roo, in order to make the students more aware of the disease.

This year, the charity evening is being organised in collaboration with the gala dinner of the psychology congress “Humour in Therapy” with the presence of both Antoine Gaber and Patch Adams, the doctor who brought the “smile therapy” into the hospital ward (portrayed in the 1998 Hollywood film by Robin Williams). Participants of this congress and all the friends of PFL will congregate at the Palazzo Budini Gattai on the evening of Saturday 16th June for this gala dinner, where not only will they be contributing to a great cause but they will also be able to admire further works by the PFL artists.

The artists, painters and sculptors, photographers and digital artists who have participated in these collective PFL exhibitions to date, come from all over the world:
