Bassano Fotografia 2013

From 14 September 2013 to 19 January 2014


From 14 September 2013 to 19 January 2014 the calendar of Bassano del Grappa events will see the return of one of the most popular Vicenza exhibitions in 2013 of photographs of the region: Bassano Fotografia 2013!


Now in its third edition, the Biennial of Bassano Photography offers a fascinating overview of contemporary photography through the eyes of well-known photographers and amateurs.

The Bassano Fotografia 2013 offers a full program of ideas, exhibitions and meetings, and as usual, it will involve the whole of Veneto in a long series of Bassano events dedicated to the vast world of photography.

Founded in 2009 with 'Photography Project' - the Bassano photography exhibition dedicated to Ansel Adams presented over 26  works  of the American master - the Biennale of Bassano quickly established itself as one of the most interesting events of photography in Veneto. In the following edition - 2011 - the Bassano photography festival proposed exhibitions and events in over 106 venues around the city exposing photographers like Sofie Knijff, Zonta Bassett, Douglas Kirkland, Enzo from Pilgrim and many others. Due to the great satisfaction of these early editions by the public and critics the Bassano photography exhibition has become one of the most prestigious cultural Bassano events in decades.

The common thread of all the Bassano del Grappa events in 2013 will be dedicated to 'Free Interpretations' photography, a comprehensive theme to amaze and excite visitors in various places in the beautiful centre of Bassano del Grappa in Veneto by important photographers and enthusiasts in the industry.
