A reportage photography workshop that will make you live closer the four days of the Palio of Siena. Horses, tuff, screams of joy and madness. The ten contradas protagonists but also the seven antagonists. A total dive into a more than unique and rare reality. Stefano Vigni, expert photographer of the Palio, will help you to immerse yourself completely in this magical event. Along with him, you will be able to photograph and live the moments of the race, but also morning and afternoon trials, as well as songs and people from the contradas. Every day a brief analysis of the shots that each of you has accomplished. This is the first workshop that will allow you to become part of a reality as difficult as magic.
The selection of participants in the workshop will be done through an interview on skype or in the Seipersei gallery. The Palio is a difficult event that requires a minimum level of experience from participating photographers.
