Vajont Photo Days: 1963 – 2023 is a multidisciplinary project to commemorate the Vajont tragedy through a dialogue between photography, historical memory, popularization and enhancement of the territory.

The goal is to return an emotional journey that spans time, starting from “before the tragedy” to the present day, sixty years after the dramatic Vajont event. This photographic project aims to offer an in-depth view of the area affected by the disaster, exploring the history, culture, daily life of the people living there and their memory.

Special guest of the project is Pierpaolo Mittica: a world reknowned humanist and environmental photographer, reporter and filmmaker, he has received numerous international awards. His photos have been exhibited in Europe, the United States and China.
His exhibition “Chernobyl: The Hidden Legacy” was chosen in 2006 by the Chernobyl National Museum in Kiev, Ukraine, as the official exhibition for the 20th anniversary celebration of the Chernobyl disaster.
