In the renovated spaces at Corso Galileo Ferraris no. 0, at the corner of Via Cernaia, visitors can see the 150 winning images of the most prestigious photography competition, founded in Amsterdam in 1955 to safeguard freedom of information, investigation and expression as inalienable rights, while promoting quality photojournalism.
The shots have been selected by an international jury chaired by Stuart Franklim, who defined the winning photo as “an image of incredibly strong impact.”

Each 28th december, in Ibi - province of Alicante, in Spain -, the "The floured's war" takes place. It's a festival in which the citizens are divided into two groups: the first is called the Enfarinat (the floured), that simulate a coup d'etat; the other one tries to calm down the rebellion. The teams plays with flour, water, eggs and coloured smoke bombs: the photos taken during the match are beautiful. It has been celebrated since 200 years and it's linked to the day of the massacre of innocents, when Herod, king of Judea, ordered to kill each baby in order to find Jesus.
