Charta is a biennal contemporary photography festival focused on photo books and independent publishing.

The festival envisions a visual itinerary consisting of different exhibitions of photographic books approaching a specific theme, scattered in different spaces in the heart of San Lorenzo, the art district of Rome.

The book exhibitions program is completed with a rich schedule of events: editorial previews, workshops, installations, exhibitions, portfolio reviews with distributors and publishers, and a bookshop with a fine selection of independent publications.

In addition, the festival offers the opportunity to participate in the Charta Award, an international competition addressed to artists who want to submit an unpublished project. The winner of the Charta Award will have the chance of publishing his/her book.


The festival is conceived and created by Yogurt, a curatorial platform that explores new directions in contemporary photography
