Expo

The theme “Demons” is declined in 100 photo-books that will be exhibited in 5 different expo. Each expo will also host a chapter of 8814, experimental web-series of a dystopian-surreal genre, created by Luca Baioni. There will also be Mojo, an exhibition that will inhabit the spaces of the festival and that will accompany the visitor along the way.
