This is the flagship event of the 12th international ‘Photofestival Milano', an extravaganza that will run from 20 April to 20 June. Titled ‘Reality and future. From Milan to the world', this international photography festival will feature the works of numerous photographers at more than 100 exhibition spaces across the city. During the same period, the Carla Sozzani Gallery will host the Italian stage of the 60th annual World Press Photo Foundation Contest, one of the world's most important competions dedicated to photojournalism and documentary photography.
