From 24 to 25 September, the space above Le Logge (Piazza XX Settembre) will host the first edition of 'PSPI - Pisa Street Photography International', a festival dedicated to the photographic genre of 'street photography'. The event is organised by the Tilt association of Pontedera, with the patronage of the Municipality of Pisa. The opening of the exhibition is scheduled for Saturday 24 September at 10.00 a.m. The councillor for culture of the Municipality of Pisa will also be present.

Many authors from Italy and abroad participated. During the Festival, in the Balearic Hall, prizes will be awarded to the best flash photography (11.15 am) and the best geometric photography (2.30 pm). Honourable mentions (3.30 pm) and the announcement of the contest winners (6.30 pm) are also scheduled. Also on the programme are meetings and lectures with important photographers.
