Humorists in Marostica 2022: 50th International Contest of Humoristic Graphics, Italy

"Memory is life
This year the Humor Graphics Competition has reached its 50th edition, an important number that makes us proud. 
We therefore decided to celebrate this anniversary with the theme: MEMORY. 
When you reach a goal it is inevitable to look back, aware of the road traveled, but only to move forward. 
Memory allows us to preserve and rediscover memories of past events as needed, which is why, since ancient times, it has been celebrated as one of the most extraordinary human abilities because it is the only one capable of making men and events immortal. 
Memory preserves both ideas and images, even the saddest and most tragic ones, and allows us to create a bridge between past, present and future. 
In a period like this, it is even more important to remember what happened in order to overcome the difficulties. 
Once again, culture becomes a pillar to cling to in order to start again and to return to hope.
