Born in 2015 to give the possibility to deal with an international festival, our Call is now a consolidated appointment.


It’s an opportunity to increase visibility in Italy and not only: after Fotografia Europea exhibition, many artists have received important awards also abroad.


The Festival has always supported the public call and has always been committed to enhancing the winning projects with site-specific research, experimenting together with the artist.
