A photography workshop to explore this art from a theoretical, but above all practical point of view, in all its uses and implications. It will start with theory on photographic storytelling, in the combination of technique and poetry, but above all returning to an idea of observation that prescinds the shot. It will then move on to putting it into practice in outdoor locations: exploring naturalistic spaces, crossing performative practices brought to Ameno by CROSS, and then creating a collective narrative, reflecting on the photographer’s work in the environment. There will be an excursus on photo editing and color choices.

The workshop is open to anyone and everyone, no specific training is required, and those who participate are invited to bring their own photographic tool, whatever that may be, if desired.


Paolo Sacchi, reporter and portrait artist, has worked for a number of travel magazines in Italy and abroad, including Dove, Gulliver, Carnet, Style, Viaggi del Sole, Yacht and Sail, Travel, Leisure, Bon Appetit, Guide Lonely Planet. He has done features for Discovery Channel, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, U.S. Today, Boston Globe, Essence Magazine, Bloomberg Investor Magazine, Lexus Magazine. For Italia Nostra he published “Portrait of a Park,” a year-long survey of the urban parks Bosco in Città and Parco delle Cave in Milan. In the field of industrial archaeology, he produced the exhibition “For the Last Time Factory” on the historic Panizza hat factory in Ghiffa, on Lake Maggiore. Privileged field of his work, however, is portraiture, through which he has investigated different worlds: art, work, family, entertainment. Among the various portrait works, the photographic exhibition “Oltre” (Beyond), exhibited in different venues, has been particularly prominent: through studio posing and an equal black background, life-size people of all ages and social backgrounds have been represented in a project aimed at building a memory of our time. Paolo Sacchi keeps a blog, “Depths of Field” (, where he uses word and image to reflect on life and his work.
