Trieste Photo Days

Vajont Photo Days: 1963 – 2023

A photographic project

Vajont Photo Days is a dialogue between photography, historical memory, dissemination and enhancement of the territory. An exciting journey through time, starting from "before the tragedy" up to the present day, sixty years after the dramatic event of the Vajont. An in-depth view of the territory affected by the disaster, exploring the history, the culture, the daily life of the people who live it and their memory.

Vajont Photo Days is made possible with the support of Regione Friuli-Venezia Giulia – Io Sono FVG and in partnership with CRAF – Centro Ricerca e Archiviazione della Fotografia/Photography Research and Archiving Centre, DEAMS – Department of Economics, Business, Mathematics and Statistics “B. de Finetti” of the University of Trieste, and the Regional Natural Park of the Friulian Dolomites. The project also collaborates with Professor Giovanni Fraziano, Municipality of Vajont, ProLoco Vajont APS, Civil Protection of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Stazione Rogers and the Photographic Club "La Gondola" from Venice.
The project also benefits from the historical-artistic consultancy of Vincenzo Labellarte and Luigi Sorrentino.
