Milano Photo Week took place June 5 – 11, 2017 and featured a program of over 150 events in over 100 locations throughout the city, including exhibitions, displays, guided tours and classes & workshops all centered around photography.

Meant to attract both professionals and amateurs, Milano Photo Week also held activities for children, plus exclusive outdoor photo sets featuring the participation of professional photographers shooting on location.

This event hosted by the Comune di Milano | Cultura, in collaboration with Leica, Fondation Carmignac, Sky Arte and ArtsFor, was Italy’s answer to Paris Photo. With such an auspicious first edition to add to the many of Milan’s internationally renowned expos and festivals, Milano Photo Week promises to grow into something important in the world photography scene.
