The three opening days, from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th May, are featuring a succession of meetings, conferences, shows, performances, special film programs and screenings. As part of its multidisciplinary approach, Fotografia Europea is hosting artists and leading players from the world of art and culture.

The photography festival attended by over 100,000 visitors last year, confirming its leading role in the international photography panorama –  is being held once again from 6th to 8th May in Reggio Emilia, the city where the President of the Italian Republic Giorgio Napolitano opened the celebrations for the 150th anniversary of Italian Unification on 7th January 2011.
