2° Photographic Competition
Building up on the success of its first edition, Ruggero Marconi in partnership with the Municipality of Formello, launches the second edition of the Photographic Competition “Foreshortening of Formello”. The competition will lead to a photo exhibition aimed at enhancing of the vast territory north of Rome, in particular the architectural and landscape heritage of Latium with focus on the historic centers of the many rural villages present in this area. Ruggero Marconi tackles the theme of the great historical and cultural wealth preserved in the small villages bordering the great Rome of the past. A photographic exhibition dedicated to these aspects can constitute a valid and proactive integration of all the various topics that will be explored and addressed by the exhibitors. The organizers believe that the photographs that will participate in the competition will conduce to the enhancement of the area north of Rome, with shots that have to capture the beauty of the villages and of their green surroundings. The exhibition will take place at the Sala Rossini, in the historic center of Formello, where all photographs registered for the competition will be exposed for two days and where the award ceremony will take place.
