Mythography – Vol. 01: project presentation (with Enrico Medda & Francesco Cito) + Award Ceremony
Riva Tre Novembre / Angolo Via Mazzini - Trieste
Friday 29 October 2021
The new publishing project Mythography is a series of collective photographic volumes freely inspired by Greek and Roman mythology.
The Mythography series will consist of five volumes that will be released annually, each dedicated to a group of Greek / Roman gods who will represent the thematic guidelines of each book. All volumes will include photos and projects by authors from all over the world, selected through special free open calls on the Exhibit Around platform.
The first volume of Mythography, dedicated to Mars, Saturn and Neptune (and therefore to the themes of war, social reportage and the force of nature) was produced this year and will be presented at the Trieste Photo Days 2021 festival by two guests of exception:
- Enrico Medda, Professor of Greek literature at the University of Pisa, scientific advisor to the volume
- Francesco Cito, one of the best Italian photojournalists, who for forty years has been describing the theaters of war around the world (including Afghanistan in 1980, the Gulf War in 1990, the Intifada of 1987 – 1993 and many others).
A selection of the best photos are also on display at the Scaglia Academy in Trieste.
