XII edizione
6th – 28th November
Furio del Furia Gallery, Carbonaia Hall
Dreams seen as desires. Dreams of growth, of revival, of a better future, or simply dreams of the opportunity
of actually having a future. Dreams and dreamers are the protagonists of the XII edition of Foianofotografia.
Once again we travel the world to tell stories. Stories of individuals and peoples, of sorrow and hope. The
theme of dreams and desires, will be on show with its various meanings and nuances. The photographers
share with us their visions and memories, moments that were may be dreamed a moment before and then
actually lived. Desires of women trapped in bodies that lead to (maybe) fame but sure loneliness; pain of the
memory of a war and the hope of putting an end to the search for a name: travels between the imaginary and
the real of men and women who make accessible for us worlds otherwise unknown. The exhibitions will be
accompanied by several events including the Foianofotografia award that will be given to the best reportage
presented during the portfolio reviews. And furthermore two special prizes offered by the group Posse Photo
and Spazio Labo’ - center of photography. Once again, screenings and multimedia exhibitions will enrich the
festival of new forms of expression and interpretation of dreams and reality.
