Photo Days Tour 2019 – Aquileia
Piazza Giuseppe Garibaldi - Aquileia
Wednesday 09 October 2019 - Saturday 30 November 2019
As part of the international urban photography festival Trieste Photo Days 2019 creates a new setting for events taking place outside the city: the Photo Days Tour.
The first edition will feature the best photos and projects drawn by the Semifinalists of the URBAN 2019 Photo Awards contest, which will be exhibited in three major collective exhibitions at prestigious institutional venues in Aquileia, Cividale del Friuli and Cormòns, plus a fourth collective at Trieste Airport.
A real festival at the festival, made possible thanks to the patronage of the Municipalities of Aquileia, Cividale del Friuli and Cormòns, and to the partnership with Trieste Airport.
A widespread review with over 480 photos for 175 authors from all over the world on display at the most important museums in the region, from the eighteenth-century walls of Palazzo Locatelli of Cormòns to the historical treasures of Aquileia passing through the famous Lombard Temple of Cividale del Friuli ( UNESCO site).
The common denominator of the four exhibitions will be street photography, a distinctive feature of the URBAN Photo Awards competition since the first edition. A path to images that will accompany the public in the world of photographers, narrators of the ordinary reinterpreted through the lens of the camera. Telling urban stories with reports, projects and storytelling.
The exhibitions of the Photo Days Tour 2019 will all be open during the opening week of Trieste Photo Days (22-27 October 2019): an unmissable opportunity for visitors to admire, in addition to the capital, also the main cities of the region.
Creator of the exhibitions, of the URBAN competition and of the Trieste Photo Days festival, is dotART, a cultural association that since 2009 has promoted, in the territory and abroad, initiatives aimed at giving support and visibility to professional and amateur photographers.
