Roadtrip in Central Italy

Last week, while in Italy for my “Japan” exhibition, I took time to explore the area around Acquapendente: Tuscia. Little gems are everywhere: Acquapendente itself was a surprise, with its ancient architecture perfectly melted with the modern artworks and installations of the Urban Vision Festival. Not far away is Orvieto, with its majestic cathedral. Last but not least, the highlight of my trip: Civita di Bagnoregio, a little town perched on top of a hill whose isolation is the result of a continuous erosion that makes the tufa rock becoming thinner and thinner on an unstable layer of clay and sand altered by wind and rain. If you are visiting Rome and you have a couple of spare days it’s worth a visit!


Open City Documentary Festival 2016

Last week I had the privilege of being the official photographer of Open City Documentary Festival 2016. Founded by Michael Stewart and based at UCL, the Festival is one of several projects run by Open City Docs.  Taking place over six days in venues across London the Festival created an open space to nurture and champion the art of creative documentary and non-fiction filmmakers. 

Thanks to the rich programme I had the chance to see the best in contemporary, international documentary as well as filmmaker Q&As, industry panels, workshops, networking and parties. Artists such as the Ross Brothers, Lucien Castaing-Taylor, Helena Trestikova and Vincent Moon held engaging masterclasses where I had the opportunity to better understand their art and their creative process. 

I feel I learnt a lot this week, and maybe it’s time to use that video button on the back of my camera! I would love to thank in particular Sophie Outhwaite, the super-organized Festival Producer that, together with her capable and cheerful team, made this Festival a pleasant experience for everybody!



On line!
