ITALY, summer 2018. Just returned from a few off-line and on-travel days, the first thing we want to do is sending you some postcards from our Mediterranean Sea. Or better, we want to share with you the project of a creative collective based in Pozzallo (Ragusa, Sicily) that this summer has looked at our coasts and imagined that other people wanted to support those who save human lives. In this article, we tell you about the idea and the collaborative action behind the hashtag #soloincartolina and we invite everyone to participate! Dear Interior Minister, Dear Italian Government, Dear European Parliament: greetings and kisses from Italy.

FIRENZE Durante la XXIV edizione di Artigianato & Palazzo, anche Barberino Designer Outlet ha partecipato alla festa dedicata agli artigiani e a chi ama le cose belle fatte a mano, aprendo le sue porte a questo mondo che da sempre caratterizza la nostra Italia e dimostrando come anche un Outlet possa offrire molto più di semplice shopping: shopping come occasione d’incontro e conoscenza del lavoro dietro ai prodotti in vetrina, della passione di quelle mani e menti creative che fanno la differenza. L’invito a questo particolare tour, ispirato al grande evento in città, ci ha incuriosito e così siamo andati a vedere coi nostri occhi…
PALERMO Here are the 60 guests selected through the “CALL for Creative Curious Travellers 2018” that has received 412 submissions from all around the World!

EUROPA Comprendiamo tutte le ragioni del movimento SET (di cui pubblichiamo il Manifesto) e proponiamo alcune “soluzioni” al turismo di massa che uccide la vivibilità e cultura locale. A modo nostro e con passione, sosterremo questa nuova rete. Città del Sud Europa, UNITEVI! #SeeCity #SETnet
PISTOIA is a hidden gem! And so convenient to explore the region of Tuscany by car or by train… * Here is the travel story by Ksenia Zizina & Pavel Fedoseyev, travel creative curious couple, co-founders of “For All Things Creative” blog and both #CCTravellers2017, obviously! 😉
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!
PALERMO “Why her? Why give her a space? Some people thought I was looking for a space to show my photos but here you won’t see my works. The ambition is much higher. I want to see others grow, I want to discover talents and cultivate them. And so what you will see won’t be my photos but, near the door of my studio, a red neon made by Riccardo Gueci: picchì idda?”
