Emilia Photography Exhibition

Emilia mostra Silvia Casali Fotografia Europea 2016

Life sometimes is slow, it never changes and days seem endless and boring. On the other hand, it might happen that life speeds up and you realize that months slipped away in a blink of an eye. This has happened the last six months. I have just realized it's been that long since I last [...]

Milan EXPO2015

Expo 2015 silvia casali photography

Last October I visited the Milan Expo with my daughter Matilde. We wanted to enjoy the experience in its wholeness, skipping the long, huge lines to enter the pavillons - actually any pavillons, October showed to be the worst time to visit Expo2015

Riccione | Shades

Last June I "forced" myself to do something I had not yet even imagined to do, that is to organize a photographic exhibition. It all started with a visit to the beach where I usually spend the whole month of June in Riccione (Italy). I noticed that the light blue painted wall of the beach [...]

Black Trees | silviacasaliphotography

I have just noticed this post was first published on January 17th completely...empty! Apologies for the mistake! I have been quite for a while, wondering about what to do with my photography and art, whether to keep on exploring them, seraching for what really reflects my inner "tourbillon" or to say "Stop, forget it!" All [...]

Ferrara | silviacasaliphotography

Right before Christmas, I spent a whole day in Ferrara visiting my friends at Mobyt. Before meeting them, I visited downtown Ferrara during a very foggy and cold winter day. And to my surprise, I discovered a very old and calm town, full of history and narrow streets. Despite the cold I took many pictures [...]

Smile | The happiest tomato sauce

Keep your eyes closed, and with your imagination color this wonderful smell with the bright shiny red of tomatoes' skin. And finally, on top of it, add a smile. The smile of the people who made this tomato sauce, the happiest [...]

Scandiano Old Lady | Take Two

As my "friend and editor" Ingrid, always says: "Casali sei una bestia!" - which translates more or less with "Casali, you are so gross!". She always refers to me as "gross" when it comes to developing and post-producing pictures. I am lazy, very very lazy. I do not study photography, I have not the patience [...]

Fotografia Europea 2012

Fotografia Europea 2012, a set on Flickr. I live in the North of Italy, on the border of the area which now is under a massive earthquake attack. 40 km between me and the disaster. It is not a lot. It is a very odd feeling to live so close, share the wait for the [...]

ARGGGGGG!!!! For those of you who do not know what a pinhole camera is, further details are available at this [...]

Le Cornelle Zoo

white tiger at le cornelle

Animal photography is not my favorite one - I do not have the equipment required to take close-ups of wild animals, I do not have the patience to wait for the right moment. Last week-end my family and I visited the Le Cornelle Zoo, located close to Bergamo, in the North of Italy. It was [...]
