|Abstract:||The European Photography, held in Reggio Emilia (Italy) from April to June, displays the work of European artists. Photography meets the city, its people, and its culture. The theme of 2007, Cities/Europe, has a wider scope than last year’s The City. |
The purpose of this paper is to analyze the discourse strategy that underlies the planning and definition of this event with a sociosemiotics approach. Both the text explaining the purpose of the Week and the texts, written or visual, by the artists build up together the meaning of the event itself and constitute a social and cultural reality. In this way photography becomes central to the cultural policy of the Reggio Emilia Municipality, targeting the belonging to Europe.
It helps understand the core of European identity, defined by social and cultural differences, and the inter¬connected experiences which the photographic discourse refers to and makes intelligible.
