PISTOIA A few summers ago, while we were hosting the #CCTravellers in the Italian Capital of Culture 2017, we discovered a place that we fell in love with at the first encounter. Yes, with Castagno di Piteccio it was love at first sight. And among the Creative Curious Travellers, who came to Tuscany from various parts of the World, with whom we repeatedly visited this tiny #BorgoMuseo a few kilometers from the city, there’s even someone who told us: “it is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen”.
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?!

TORINO Il festival di NESXT è un viaggio nel mondo delle pratiche artistiche indipendenti che porta in giro per Torino attraverso l’Italia più contemporanea: il circuito, infatti, seleziona spazi e progetti in tutto il bel paese e trova loro casa in luoghi del capoluogo piemontese, mettendo dunque in connessione realtà del territorio con altre, provenienti da altre città italiane, che hanno profili simili o comunque alcune caratteristiche in comune, realtà con le quali condividono interessi o intenzioni, punti di vista o visioni.
SEETIES Inspired by the imaginative world of Van Gogh, ‘No Blue Without Yellow’ – a short film by Maciek Janicki – offers an emotive tour through the world Vincent Van Gogh saw and captured in his paintings. The fantasy lasts simply two minutes, but within that short time the observer is immersed in a painter’s lifetime.
PALERMO In the Sicilian capital to explore and tell the city together with the #CCTravellers2018 – we also took part in the opening days of #Manifesta12 dedicated to the press… So, before publishing and sharing the stories by the #CCTravellers who were in particular inspired by the European nomadic biennial for contemporary art, we’ll try to tell you in brief what #MANIFESTA is in its 12th edition (open until 4th November 2018). #SeeCity #Palermo2018

SEETIES The smartphone as a creative tool for visual storytelling: How do smartphones change our way of seeing, observing, capturing? Are images taken on smartphones simple snaps or art works on their own right? We have decided to learn more about this topic interviewing Rosa Roth, founder and editor-in-chief of THE SMART VIEW – an inspirational independent magazine dedicated to mobile photography.
