PhMuseum Days @ Piazza Minghetti / Video by Giacomo Maestri


In this workshop, the multifaceted artist Salvatore Vitale invites you to experiment with the expressive potential of photography placed in dialogue with different media. In an era characterised by increasingly interconnected digital communication, visual artists need to be confronted on a daily basis with languages and media that constantly influence and shape the production of content and narrative projects. Over the course of 3 days, you will have the opportunity to create a transmedia narrative project involving the use of photography in association with other media such as sound, archive images, social platforms, video, text.
