Follow our trips in Friuli, you would have a glimpse of the perpetually snowy Giulie and Carnic Alps, idyllic grapevine-filled plains, or just what we see on the top of a mountain or at an end of the sea.
You don’t have to recognise whether it is a Roman, Venetian, or Langobard architecture in our pictures. Just enjoy the ancient, quaint, splendid, or colourful atmosphere they bring to you.
Art in Friuli is not only a mural in a church, a masterpiece in a gallery, or a culture relic in a Roman heritage site; it is also a simple but appealing painting on the street you pass by, a jazz night in a pub, or an artistic installation whose meaning you might never know.
Wanderer’s Glimpse is part of the bigger project called“La RicercaVisuale 2.0 in FVG”, a project on visual research about Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
Our aim is not to promote the region by showing what people want to see but what we felt as worse presenting you : a bottom up vision of Friuli Venezia-Gulia. Therefore, it seemed necessary to us to involve as many as possible other wanderers arriving to the region. With the hashtag #Wanderersglimpse, you are invited to share your pictures of the region through instagam or facebook.
The photos shown in “Wanderer’s glimpse” were collected from students from different departments, countries and backgrounds. They provide a new perspective on the region as they enhances the way in which FVG is perceived by outsiders and therefore challenges how locals see their homeland. With those pictures, we want to show a new point of view on the region, an ingenuous, refreshing and genuine one. We want to express, through pictures, how we feel here and show what is representative of the region to us. The photos provide a new perspective on the region as they enhances the way in which FVG is perceived by outsiders and therefore challenges how locals see their homeland.
Euroculture is a two-year, multi-university master programme focused on the study of modern European society, culture and politics in a global context. We focus on questions of cultural identities and social values that play a vital role in today’s debates about Europe and its place in the world.
The main focus of Eurocompetence II is on developing a specific ‘Euroculture’ competence of inter- and transcultural communication. This is done by means of working on European cultural project management and the study of group-dynamics. For this part of the programme students are required to set up and conduct a cultural project of their own … and this is our students’ final project!
