Also for this edition, URBAN avails itself of a stellar jury composed by Alec Soth, Jérôme Sessini, Kadir van Lohuizen, Tatsuo Suzuki, Laura Zalenga and many others.
Trieste Audace is a tribute to the city of Trieste, the city that for the past 10 years has been hosting the International Festival of Urban Photography Trieste Photo Days.
The project celebrates the diversity of Trieste, a city of literature, of the bora wind and of historic cafés. Trieste is defined as “brave” (audace in italian) because it is a city that dares, puts itself on the line, which keeps up with the times without forgetting its origins. A city where the sea and the mountains come together in an area rich in history and gastronomic culture, a symbol of Central European culture. A city with a glorious past that looks to the future, as well as its large square that looks out to sea.
