It was about time! The gigantic biennal on industry- and work-related photograhy orgenized by MAST returns this year. It can be visited until the 24th of November.
I discovered this great exhibition by chance in 2017, when I was in the region visiting friends and relatives, and of course to eat great food: Emilia-Romagna is home to some of the finest Italian delicatessen such as Parma ham, Parmigiano Reggiano, lasagne, tortellini, etc.
This exhibition is totally worth visiting for many reasons:
And of course, being in Italy and being sunny, how could I resist having an ice-cream?
I couldn't, but running short on time I had to enter one of the venues while still eating. Emilia didn't miss the opportunity and promptly took the evidence of my greediness:
Now... Remember when I mentioned the parallel program?
Luckily before leaving for Bologna I saw there was going to be an interesting discussion about Ferrania, the italian company of photographic film that basically provided all the pellicle for the italian film industry from after the WWII up to the 90s.
The discussion was going to be between Gabriele Mina', a well known italian anthropologist and... Michele Smargiassi, journalist at La Repubblica (biggest national newspaper) and author of the blog Fotocrazia. Being a huge fan, I could not miss it!
I even asked him to autograph my copy of his book Un'autentica bugia ! (though i needed some encouragement- thanks again Emilia for the support and the picture ahah!)
That's all folks! I'm looking forward to the 2021 edition already, hoping it will be as good as this one!
