PISTOIA is a city that more than others had fun over the centuries giving original, bizarre and extravagant names to its streets and alleys. For example: who knows the history of the white dog?! and who has ever noticed the bas-relief in stone that portrays, at the beginning of Via del Can Bianco, this curious local hero?!
PISTOIA è anche Montagna e qui vi raccontiamo in particolare di un paese che di curiosità ne ha a bizzeffe! E di bellezze altrettante. In gran parte, conosciute solo dai paesani e quindi è un po’ come se vi svelassimo dei segreti… beh, se siete curiosi, seguiteci! 😉

PISTOIA “From the quietest streets to the busy market day, from the city underground to the top of its mountains; with my travelling mindset I will share some of my beautiful ‘CCTravel’ moments around Pistoia with you.” – Here is the story by Teija Vaittinen, Berlin-based theatre artist from Finland. #CCTravellers2017
PISTOIA in 2017 was the Italian Capital of Culture and @Igers_Pistoia during the year, through Instagram, has involved citizens and not in the photographic and social storytelling of the city, suggesting a new theme every fifteen days or rather a “photographic challenge”. On over 500 photographs collected, more than 80 have been selected and from tomorrow (27th February) they’ll be on display (until 10th March) in the atrium of the Palazzo Comunale (in Piazza del Duomo, 1). Among these, also some photos shared by the #CCTravellers2017!

PISTOIA “I must confess that prior to this trip, I had never heard of Pistoia but I was eager to discover its specialties anyway. With surprise and immense delight, I came across many places to truly celebrate food, tradition and time, as I had never done before.” A very passionate story by Miriam Figueras, illustrator from Barcelona. #CCTravellers2017
