Cortona On The Move – fotografia in viaggio
July 18 to Sept 30
After the success of the first edition in 2011, with 15.000 visitors, artistic direction for the second edition was placed in the expert hands of Arianna Rinaldo. For the second edition too, the photographic narrative of the festival was centered around a voyage, or journey, to be interpreted in the broadest possible sense of the word.
Among various other initiatives, the workshops and portfolio reviews became a permanent feature of the programme, and the festival received important institutional recognition from: the High Patronage of the President of the Republic, the Patronage of the Ministry for National Heritage and Cultural Activities, the governments of the Region of Tuscany, the Province of Arezzo and the District of Cortona.
