Famous people from Senigallia
Local born multi-talented artist Mario Giacomelli used photography and painting as a means to explore his interior world.
In 1963 he came into the international spotlight after the MOMA in New York purchased his photographic series "Scanno". His most famous work with the touching title "I have no hands to caress my face" is part of "Little Priests" which features a group of young priests from Senigallia photographed in unusual situations.
There is an exhibition of Giacomelli's work at the Ducal Palace, just 5 minutes from the hotel.
