"La Famille" is a cozy beautiful place in the hearth of Marrakech. I've to say we've find this place by causality just walking around! I remember we were just looking for a small resturant where to have our lunch and we've found this beautiful place!
I've been quite surprised about Marrakech. I wasn't expecting to find this colorful place where the street of the old Medina looks like a labyrinth! With this post (and the next one) I will try to get back the memories of this trip with the pictures I've shoot in Marrakech. Like usual for my trip, my photo equipment was very small to let me to travel light. I've bring with me the

The End User Event is a conference of 3d graphic arts that is held every year in Utrecht in the Florin Pub. Yes, I know that it can sound silly to held a conference in a Pub but the reason is that the event started as an informal meeting occasion between some 3d artists. In the years the event has grown but it keeps this basic setting and I've to say that it works.
Rotterdam, is the city where I've lived for some years during the time of my internship in the Netherlands, back in the 2009. The city is quite new all around since it has been almost all destroyed after the second world war bombing. In this way Rotterdam was rebuild in a new modern style: the city looks quite different from any other Dutch city. Here you can find new modern skyscrapers, new futuristic buildings as the new central market and interesting squares.
After the first part of pictures taken in Amsterdam from my last trip to Netherland, in this post I want to focus on the next two places I've visited: the park of Keukenhof and the wind mills area of Kinderdijk. I've been already in both the places in the past but it has been many years ago, so was nice to come back to see them again.
I love to go back to the Netherlands. It's a country that I feel like home since i've passed there many years during my university time: I did my internship in Den Haag (more about it on one of the next post) and I've lived in Rotterdam, so the place has get a piece of my hearth.
Massimiliano is a friend who was born in the same city as me, Trieste. Massimiliano has lived for eight years in Amsterdam. It's funny 'cause we not know each other from our own city but we've met during an evening organized by the group "Italians abroad" in The Netherlands. By now it was for so many years that we haven't seen each other, and the occasion for our "reunion" was my recent trip to Holland.
These photos published in this article unfortunately arrive with the sad news of the accident yesterday occurred right in the same place I visited just over a week ago in Massa Carrara’s marbe quarries. In the accident that happened, a wall of marble came off sweeping two workers. At the moment the workers are still missing under the rubble. We pray in god that some good news could arrive… [Update on 15/4/16: unlucky the sad news that we didn't want to hear has arrived. The fireman found the bodies lifeless under the stones]
It was from a long time that I promise myself to visit Perugia. I've heard quite interesting story from this ancient city. After I've visited it, I can only confirm the positive feedback. Perugia is fabulous: there's many old streets where you can walk and feel the old medieval town. In some way, with the up and down hills and the panoramic view above the city, it reminds me Orvieto, another place that I love.
Recently in October I had the big satisfaction to be invited in Canada from my friend Igor, co-founder of MiniMax company. They are one of the sponsors for the Calgary Film Festival. I was in charge to take some photos during the closing ceremony (you can see the photos of the event at this link here). Well, my trip there was off course a great moment to travel a bit around and discover the beautiful nature of Canada. So my main visit during those days was at Banff National park: it's a very wide area that offers some amazing views over lakes (like Lake Louise) and unique ski resort places for winter sports.
I loved the night. First of all there was shown the best ten short movies selected by the festival jury: each of them had something unique, going from drama to irony, psychological introspection to sweet stories of everyday life. The dress code and style of the night was thinking about the ’30ies years. I’ve to say that no one had disappointed with that: every guest had a particular and unique touch in the style of the evening that made the atmosphere inside the theatre so special.
Slovenia has a beautiful natural area that every year hosts travellers from around the world, attracted by the charm of forests, crystal clear rivers and the huge underground caves. In this context, the Triglav’s park is an excellent destination for a nice and relaxing vacation. There are so many interesting points to take pictures! During our trip we stopped in Tolmin, Kobarid and Bovec following some of the suggested itineraries, such as the one that brings in Tolmiska Korita. The photos below were taken with the Fuji X100T, a very small camera easy to carry with you on all the occasions! A feature that Fuji X100T has and it proved to be very useful is the native ND filter that lowers exposure to 3 stops: I’ve used it in the opening photo of this article. By activating this filter and stepping down the aperture to f/16 you are able to take the photos with the exposure time of one second so you obtain the effect of moving water!
