After the great success of the last four editions,  Let me Italian you is ready to launch the fifth and exclusive edition of DISCOVER LISBON

"Light, say artists, is all important to creating a masterpiece. The azure sky over Lisbon, long hours of summer sunshine and golden sunsets are factors that ensure many visitors go home with fond memories and great photographs of the Portuguese capital. "  Welcome to Lisbon: the City of Light.

DISCOVER LISBON 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 magical and picturesque  city of Lisbon, in Portugal, through photos, reportage, videos made by photographers (amateurs or not) from different places of the world. DISCOVER LISBON wants to enrich the professional and academic path of the photographer, moreover it wants to enrich his portfolio.

DISCOVER LISBON is supported by IADE-Universidade Europeia.

The two tours of the city are organized in collaboration with Rita the Guide, a professional local guide,who knows all the sights of Lisbon and will take you on a guided tour. Exactly:

1° Tour - Alfama: Alfama is one of the oldest districts in Europe and the former red light district of Lisbon. Surviving the great earthquake of 1755, Alfama is home to relics of the Arabic occupation in the 8th century, roman ruins and monuments regarding the foundation of Portugal 900 years ago! This maze-like little village inside the center of Lisbon will transport you to a simpler time where kids play on the streets, neighbors get together on a daily basis, doors are not locked and where the cars don't fit. Come wander these lost in time streets with a home made ginjinha, discover the birthplace of fado or just chat while drinking a portuguese glass of wine and tasting an amazing cheese platter.                  It includes: Cathedral of Lisbon - The castle of Lisbon - Labyrinth of old Alfama streets - History of Alfama - History of fado.

2° Tour - Downtown: With this tour you get to know the full history of Lisbon that originates as far as 3000 years ago, all the way up to the key events of XXI century Lisbon. We will see the highlights and the top attractions of its unique downtown area, the best viewpoints of the seven hills, talk about culture, literature and politics. The best way to understand the Portuguese people and the country's evolution, from its glorious past until today's Europe best well-kept secret.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             It includes: All downtown area - Best sightseeing points - Historical monuments, churches and ruins - Full Lisbon history.

3° Tour - Belem: Belem is the charming district to the west of Lisbon, and is the setting for many of the city’s most iconic tourist attractions. For visitors, Belem is one of the finest areas of Lisbon, and offers outstanding tourist attractions, informative museums and beautiful views along the Tejo Estuary. Belem is unlike the rest of Lisbon, being filled with parks, tree-lined plazas and green open spaces, and is a breath of fresh air from claustrophobic and chaotic central Lisbon. It includes:  Degustation of Pastel de Belem at Fábrica Pastéis de Belém - Mosteiro dos Jeronimos - Padrão dos Descobrimentos, Torre de Belem. ​​​​​​​


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

My name is Daniele and I'm from Turin, Italy, where I'm studying Foreign Languages and Translation. I'm a curious and outgoing person, I love travelling as much as possible, discovering new places, meeting new people and friends and learn a lot from anyone. Among these, photography is one of my biggest passion, though at an amateur level. The thing I like the most about it is that with a photo it is possible to create and share a story, a piece of you that only existed in your mind before. I like to look through the lenses and try to capture any moment that could catch my eye. This is my first participation, I'm here to learn a lot of things and as a matter of fact, I can't wait for it! I partecipated in Discover Prague 1.




I'm a soon to be 36 years old from Helsinki, Finland. I work as a construction engineer and whenever I can, I try to find new things to experience.


I'm an aesthetic person and I'm on a quest to find the perfect combination of light and shadows and I try to immortalize it from the streets, landscapes, people etc.

Currently I'm interested in black'n white and old film look pictures.

I can't wait to learn new things in photography during this project and to meet you all in Lisbon!

My name is Mario Emiliano and I come from Pont Canavese ,in the province of Turin,in Italy!

I have just finished 4 years of professional school,like a Programmer of CNC machines! I'm a very curious person,I love travelling,discover cities,to know people.

I like challenges and learn new things.I started photographing almost a year ago!Photography has become one of my greatest passions! Through photography I want to convey to people the same tranquility and relaxation that I had while taking those photos!

This is my first part! I'm here to learn many things!

My name is Andreas and I’m from Copenhagen, Denmark.  


I found the passion for photography within the last couple of years, and is now eager to learn more, from both the workshop but also from meeting fellow photographers.

I mostly do street photography, but want to explore all the aspects of photography in effort to find my niche. I love to travel, meet new people and most importantly try new food.


I’m excited to meet you all, and not the least discover Lisbon!



My name is Angela and I'm 25 years old.

I'm a sunny and smiling girl.

I like doing new experiences and to know new people.

My interest is traveling and I always hope to discover new places.


My name is Annarosa, Anna for my friends. If I check my identity card I realize I am 41 but I feel the same energy and enthusiasm as when I was 25. I've been part also of Discover Barcelona 2, Discover Sicily 2, Discover Marrakech 1 and Discover Budapest 6. My greatest passion is travelling: I always have a new destination in my mind, either seaside or big cities, I start getting excited since I am preparing my suitcase! I am fond of photography because I believe it is the most direct way to communicate my feelings and the emotions I get from the places I visit: I especially like landscapes both urban and natural, astrophotography and b/w shootings. As Giovanni Gastel said "I have always thought that Poetry and Photography have several things in common".


I'm Lucrezia and I live in a magical place called Lake Como, in northern Italy.

I work in clothing store, but my greatest passion is, of course, photography!

Shooting nature and landscapes is what inspires me the most, but I find it quite challenging at times as all the photography knowledge I have is self-taught.
As I’d love to take a step forward, this adventure in Lisbon comes at the perfect time!
I cannot wait to take part in the project, to share and enjoy new experiences and meet new friends!



My name is Gabriele, born in Udine. I have been dealing with photography for 5/6 years. Generally I like to photograph landscapes, nature but also portraits. Photography is everything for me, now I fell in love with this passion of mine. It was a clear afternoon with a beautiful sky, and I looked at the sky outside the window the more I looked at it and the more I felt that something was being born in me. So I took my cell phone and started photographing the more I photographed and the more I saw that I liked it, so my passion for photography was born. Maybe I'll never become a famous photographer, maybe I'll never become a great photographer. But if you don't even have the courage to dream, how can you expect something to happen?
