Quest’anno ho avuto l’opportunità di seguire, sotto la direzione di Andrea Ranalli, il Lemon Bowl, uno dei più importanti tornei giovanili di tennis in Italia. Più di 1800 iscritti hanno partecipato all’edizione 2013. Un’esperienza per me formativa e molto divertente, il cui ricordo più intenso sarà senza dubbio legato all’impegno e alla bravura con cui i più piccoli (dai sei anni in su) hanno affrontato le partite del torneo.

A selection of my “Vantage point” project is published on the Landscape Stories blog. The photos were taken during a very interesting workshop with Massimo Siragusa.
Some of my pictures covering L’Aquila earthquake aftermath will be displayed at the new Shoot4Change exhibition in Rome, starting on the 5th of December.

The Castello di Oliveto is a perfect place for a young and romantic couple to get married. I have to admit that it’s also a great place for taking beautiful shots, and drinking very good wine… Jay Photographers based in Rome, Venice & UK © Copyright 2012 Jay Studio All Rights Reserved Ph.

La Cavalcata Sarda è un’antica festa (si dice risalga al 1711) che ogni anno si tiene a Sassari e vede sfilare tutti i costumi tipici della Sardegna. Il programma tradizionale della festa prevede la sfilata dei costumi, esibizioni acrobatiche a cavallo e canti e balli tipici. L’edizione del 2012 non è stata tra le più fortunate: la pioggia ha impedito a molti gruppi di uscire ed ha bloccato tutte le esibizioni a cavallo. Ciò non ha rovinato il buon umore dei partecipanti e ho avuto la fortuna di assistere ai balli e alle danze tradizionali che spontaneamente i gruppi facevano all’interno …
My first “official” collaboration with Jaystudio was at a funny wedding of a very nice couple from Down Under, with a bunch of happy friends in Volterra, Tuscany. Here’s a selection of shots from that day. Jay Photographers based in Rome, Venice & UK © Copyright 2012 Jay Studio All Rights Reserved Ph. Paolo Fusco Wedding powered by Efffetti
Shoot4Change just published a small reportage on L’Aquila and two small villages nearby, Paganica and San Gregorio, three years after the earthquake that struck the area. What most hurts you, beside the destruction and the pain one can see and imagine, is the fact that almost no progress has been made in the reconstruction of the buildings in L’Aquila and especially in the small villages nearby. Paganica and San Gregorio were lively and beautiful little places and are now almost destroyed; the situation there is now even worse than three years ago, since everything is abandoned with no visible reconstruction or restoration …
I had the chance to visit L’Aquila and two small nearby villages, Paganica and S. Gregorio, three years after the tremendous 2009 earthquake. Very small efforts have been made in the reconstruction and the restoration of the buildings and of the social life. Paganica and S. Gregorio are abandoned and their situation is even worse than it was in the aftermath of the earthquake.
Last sunday I had the opportunity to participate to a nice event in Rome: a Touch Rugby tournament featuring Liberi Nantes, the refugees sport association in Rome. Some of my photos taken on that occasion are featured on the Shoot4Change website, here.
