The Mastio della Cittadella of Turin reopens to host World Press Photo, the world’s leading photojournalism competition.

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.

Eritreans migrants seen cramped in the hold of a large wooden boat which carried approximately 540 men women and children, mostly Eritreans. 2016 was a deadly year of migrants and refugees trying to cross the mediterranean from Libya's coasts to Italy's. With ever increasing numbers of unseaworthy boats attempting the crossing, charities and NGOs like MOAS are often overwhelmed. MOAS, together with medical teams from the red cross, operates two rescue vessels, the Responder and the Phoenix, just off the coast of Libya. They sit in international waters and await either the distress call from migrants lucky enough to have been given a satellite phone by their smuggler, or to visually find migrants boats - often in the dead of night. Then the race to rescue them before it too late starts. © Mathieu Willcocks/MOAS.eu 2016, all rights reserved.
