Alex Marè, born in Fermo, is an expert in Photography and Communication.

Over the years, he has collaborated with important Italian newspapers, such as LaPresse, Donna Moderna, Corriere dello Sport, Corriere della Sera, and Oggi. His expertise and passion for photography have made him a point of reference in the professional landscape, distinguished by innovation and the quality of his work.

Milan was his main operational base initially, where he had the opportunity to photograph many of the most famous top models and international actresses, including Cindy Crawford, Sara Sampaio, Irina Shayk, Adriana Lima, Cate Blanchett, Belen Rodriguez, Romee Strijd, Carla Bruni, Alberta Ferretti, Bella Hadid, and Gigi Hadid.

His career reached a significant milestone when, commissioned by Archbishop Mons. Rocco Pennacchio, he curated a bi-monthly exhibition titled "L'assunta," at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Fermo.

This historic event marked his consecration as the first artist in history to exhibit in this imposing location. The exhibition was visited by approximately 20,000 people over the bi-monthly period and was also visited by the Archbishop of Milan, Mario Delpini.

In addition to fashion icons, Alex Marè has photographed and documented prominent personalities in the industry, including Giorgio Armani, Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, Franca Sozzani, and many others.

He also contributed to documenting events for the State Police, commissioned by the Prefect of Fermo, Dr. Rosa Romano, for a period of three years. His images were used in the National Christmas Campaign for the Social Profiles of the State Police.

In March 2023, he curated a permanent exhibition at the Fermo Police Headquarters, donating seven paintings depicting moments of daily life of the State Police, permanently exhibited in the foyer of the Chief of Police.

On March 8, 2023, during a conference sponsored by the equal opportunities commission of the Marche Region at the Fermo Police Headquarters, he exhibited a photographic work symbolizing the importance of gender equality, depicting a patrol car with two officers, one male and one female.

Alex Marè has also embarked on a successful editorial career. In 2021, during the first lockdown, he published his first book, "Fermo Photographic Portrait," which was a bestseller in Italy, featuring 100 people to narrate the historical period experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic. He sent a copy of the book to the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella, receiving thanks in response.

He had the honor of personally delivering a copy of his book to His Holiness Pope Francis on March 30, 2022, receiving praise for highlighting common humanity during the pandemic.

His work "Photographic Portrait" was also appreciated by Queen Elizabeth II of England, from whom he received a letter of thanks from her Lady-in-Waiting.

In 2022, he published his second book, "100 Questions Every Photographer Should Ask," which entered the top five in the national ranking in the "criticism and photographic essays" category.

Alex Marè has also collaborated with the Fermo Prefecture, documenting the State Police band in the evocative setting of the Teatro dell'Aquila in Fermo.

In 2022, his photographs of the Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Fermo were used as the cover of the national religious magazine "Believe."

On May 21, 2022, he presented his book at the Turin International Book Fair, in collaboration with the Marche Region and in the presence of the Marche Region's Minister of Culture, Giorgia Latini.

He has received significant recognitions, including:

A plaque of recognition from the Municipality of Fermo for his contribution to the promotion of the territory.

The Ribbon of the Thirtieth Anniversary of the National Association of Volunteer Firefighters for his commitment to the association.

Throughout his career, he has served commendably in Public Administration.

Also since 2021, he has been a member of the Regional Technical Committee of the National Association of Volunteer Firefighters and Communications Manager in Emergency for the National Association of Volunteer Firefighters, sitting at the regional technical committee table for the Marche Region.

Since August 2023, he has been part of the first equal opportunities commission of the Municipality of Fermo.

He is registered in the Regional Register of Marche, with the qualification of Tourist Accompanist.
