PhEST - Festival internazionale  di fotografia e arte  Monopoli
Downtown Monopoli
PhEST is born out of the need to give back a voice to the thousand identities that form the "sea within the lands", the need to redefine a new, original imagery. The necessity is not to erase the distance that the Mediterranean creates among these identities, because this sea, infact, creates them and blends them. The need is rather to stitch back together the divide between reality and its representation, beyond the theater of truth, beyond that stage of the real that the West has often set up.
  October 5, 2019 to October 27, 2019
Festival della Fotografia Etica

The exhibits are housed in locations of historical importance, all situated within walking distance of downtown Lodi.
