we are almost there: next weekend, the 24/25/26 of may in san felice sul panaro, a little town near modena, the FOTOINCONTRI photographic festival will take place.

FRIDAY 24th of may
– at 18:30 in piazza castello the festival will be officially open, with the inauguration of the twelve photographer’s exhibitions. there isn’t a specific location of where these exhibitions will be, because the exhibitions will be… it will be a surprise! in the evening, at 21:30, in piazza castello there will be a screening of oliviero toscani’s images for the citizens of san felice.
SATURDAY 25th of may
– from 9:00 o’clock in the morning to 19:00 there will be the workshops in different locations. I know that most of the workshops are full, but if you want you can try asking if there is any availability caused by defections: ask giulio, on 333.773.0507. and remember that every workshop carries a 100 euros fee, which will go entirely to san felice.
– photographer sara lando will host a workshop named “playing with photography” (for free!) for the children of san felice.
– in the afternoon denis curti, resposible for the most important space dedicated to photography, FORMA, will give a lecture on “collecting and photography”, a topic on which he has recently written a wonderful book: I will write the time and place as soon as possible.
– at 21:00 in piazza castello davide mengacci will introduce the twelve photographers, who will show their work and speak in a sort of talk show about photography. davide mengacci is not only a great television host, but has always been a big fan of photography: there will also be his exhibition during those days in san felice, in via marconi number 17.
– before/during/after the evening meeting there will be three prints on sale each signed by the author at 100 euros each. obviously this also will go towards san felice.
SUNDAY 26th of may
– there will be the wonderful presence of martina colombari, which will let herself be photographed by the twelve photographers for the making of the 2014 calendar of san felice. Whose revenues, of course, will go entirely in san felice.
– in the afternoon, in the streets of the town, the famous MAGICO will take place, directed by mario lasalandra.
– I would say that is all: we are waiting for you in numbers!!!
