Nestled on the hill overlooking the Valdichiana and Lake Trasimeno, the enchanting Etruscan village of Cortona is appreciated by artists, composers and dreamers.
The beauty of the territory, the winding streets, the wine bars, the historic buildings, the artisan shops, the art galleries, make every corner a postcard.
Since 2011 this charming village is transformed every year into a avant-garde place for lovers, and not only, of contemporary photography.
Cortona On The Move, one of the most famous and appreciated International Photography Festivals in the world, was created with the aim of promoting "the eighth art" and researching new original forms of visual communication.
The continuous search for original contemporary works, stories that affect the public, and evolving techniques have contributed to the success of the festival, which is now a point of reference for established and amateur photographers.
The territory is certainly an added value of the event: Cortona On The Move has returned to the village of Cortona historic buildings and valuable, once abandoned, in extraordinary exhibition locations. A traveling exhibition that allows access to the ancient Fortress of Girifalco, which dominates the city, the old meat warehouse, the abandoned hospital ... places that enrich the displays of special charm.
From July to September the city shows itself in all its splendor: take the opportunity to visit it!
