If you love photography you can't miss it!

It's called a marathon but you don't run: 8 hours of photography, 2 workshops, 1 aperitif and 12 stimulating themes to follow and try to photograph the streets of Milan.

Glimpses, details, plays of light, people, interactions, reflections, shadows, geometries...
Whether you have a camera, a smartphone or a tablet, through this event you will see the city from a different perspective.

• 9:00 – 9:30 meeting, check-in at the stands in Piazza Gae Aulenti and delivery of the welcome kit (with lots of surprises!)*
