Hi everyone! My name is Susanna, I'm 26 years old and I live in a city near Naples, Italy.

I am a visual designer who loves her job madly and lives for her passions. I like swimming, drawing, making handicrafts and, of course, taking pictures. It's thanks to these things that I am able to communicate despite my shyness, through creations that don't need words. So before being a designer, I define myself as an artisan. Photography has always had an important place in my life. Through it, I try to give importance to those little details that nobody ever notices, and which in my opinion are the most important and interesting.I think photography is not only the best way to discover the world, but also yourself. See you soon in Amsterdam!


After the great success of Krakow, Barcelona, Budapest, Sicily, Marrakech, Lisbon, Copenhagen, Prague, Athens, Santorini, Seville, Paris, Valencia and Gran Canaria, Let me Italian you is proudly ready to launch the first and exclusive edition of DISCOVER AMSTERDAM. It will be a unique and exclusively edition for the all 2023!

Known as the Venice of the North, Amsterdam is a wonderful place, it’s a beautiful city with an amazing history and tons of culture. Canals permeate the city creating an amazingly calm and relaxed atmosphere wherever you are in Amsterdam.Amsterdam is also famous for housing more bicycles than citizens, more canals than Venice, more bridges than Paris, and more crooked houses than any other place. Amsterdam is a populare destination all year round!

DISCOVER AMSTERDAM is an innovative project whose purpose is to make the participants live a professional experience for those who love photography and video making.

The main goal of the project is to valorise and promote the magic city of Amsterdam, in Netherlands, trough photos, reportage, videos made by photographers (amateurs and not) from different places of the world. DISCOVER AMSTERDAM wants to enrich the professional and academic path of the photographer, moreover it wants to enrich his portfolio.

The two tours of the cities is organized in collaboration with Easy Rider Amsterdam, a professional local guide,who knows all the sights of Amsterdam and will take you on a guided tour .  Exactly:

1° Tour "Old Town and Canals": Visit of Dam Square + Grachtengordel (known in English as the Canal District) +  Jordaan District. Highlights of this tour: Royal Palace; Palace Dam; National Monument; Madame Tussauds; Nieuwe Kerk; Begijnhof; Nine Little Streets; Anna Frank House; Westerkerk; Homonument

2° Tour Museumplein & Jewish Quarter : Rembrandtplein - Blue bridge - Jewish cultural quarter - New Market square - Central station

Further, we will visit one of the most beautiful gem in Netherlands! Beautiful, unique and full of windmillsZaanse Schans. If you wish to get an accurate impression of life in Holland in the 17th and 18th centuries, visit the Zaanse Schans. In this region, you will see authentic houses, windmills, a tinware factory, a cheese and dairy factory and other crafts! That's why we're goin there!

Last but not least, we will visit one of the most important museum in all Amsterdam: Moco Museum.

In order to improve participants’ professional and academic skills, there will be several workshops :

  1. Workshop "Street Photography" lead by the photographer Nanda Hagennars

Photographer much, I try to "understand" the world, exploring all its facets.
