On 8th May, the Aterballetto company will put on a performance of great impact. As in previous festivals, Fotografia Europea’s collaboration with Aterballetto provides an opportunity to get to know and discover the San Lazzaro complex, one of the city’s future seven centres of excellence. The event is promoted in collaboration with the Reggio Emilia Healthcare Trust – Psychiatric services, FER Emilia Romagna Railways, the National dance Foundation and the “San Lazzaro” History of Psychiatry Documentation Centre

The Fotografia Europea programme features two exhibits. The first, Il padiglione dei furiosi - Il restauro del Lombroso nel complesso del San Lazzaro (The wing of the furious – the restoration of the Lombroso wing in the San Lazzaro complex), by Giorgia Lombardini, Francesca Saccani, Elisa Bonoretti and Studio Fuse, is a display of the plans related to the building restoration works. The second exhibit, which is sure to attract a great deal of interest is Hipstamatic for San Lazzaro. Here, Fabrizio Cicconi, Marco Manfredini, Marcello Grassi, Fabrizio Orsi, and Kai-Uwe Schulte–Bunert use iPhone photo applications to offer an absolutely original vision of the San Lazzaro complex and the Lombroso wing.
