Workshop with Francesco Faraci: Trieste by night
Via Carlo Ghega 17 - Trieste
Friday 23 October 2020 - Sunday 25 October 2020
On Friday 23, Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 October 2020, photographer Francesco Faraci, guest of the Trieste Photo Days 2020, will hold an exclusive street photography workshop as part of the festival.
Trieste by night. Living city, port and Italian gateway to the East. City defined as an “old lady asleep in the past, now alive and young.
The workshop will start after sunset and will continue as long as we feel like it. A week-end.
Squares, streets, pubs, clubs.
No rules, no filters.
At night, that place where inhibitions are loosened until they melt.
Socialize. Desire to be there, to eat and drink well and to be outdoors.
Ingredients that youth from Trieste do not lack.
Cheekiness to taste.
