February 20th-24th, 2020

Carnival in Sardinia is not a common event and it’s strongly felt by Sardinian People. Masks, freaky disguises, dances and songs characterize the celebrations. The villages in the Island deeply change; black and white become the colours of Carnival remembering the ancient origins of mysterious rituals. Grotesque farces, satirical theatre, paradox plays are the features of this event that you have to live in person.
People who take part in the Sardinian Carnival get involved in every celebration and actors and spectators are mixed up together. Fava beans and lard, fritters and wine are the guaranteed fellow travellers of this unbelievable trip. These are very favourable and incredible situations to take pictures.

The objective of this photographic travel is to bring participants to the best spots of the events and experiment on the field the photography of people taken in a very exciting context.
