Amazing medieval castle at the top of a hill in Italy.
If you want to travel to the past, this is the place to go. In order to reach the entrance of the castle you have to walk surrounded by a beautiful forest, in a couples of minutes you will see this gigantic fortress!! The castle, which is the largest fortified complex in Trentino in the north of Italy, extends over the summit of the hill of Beseno, occupying a position of great strategic importance for the control of the Valley and the communications routes linking the German Empire with the Italians.
The fortress is medieval in its origins, but it was reconstructed in the first half of the 16th century with renaissance decoration. The first owners of the Castle were the Beseno and Castelbarco families and then from the 1470 to 1973 was part of the Trapp family. Finally they donated the castle to the Autonomous Province of Trento. Nowadays, a lot of events and medieval tournaments take place in the garden of the castle. Remember to use comfortable shoes, because you will walk for hours!
Of course, Italy makes a great destination for taking photos. But what if there was a place where you could find stunning motifs, impressive colors, and the ideal mixture of nature and arts all at once? What if I told you that there is a place like that: a garden full of art in the middle of nowhere?

Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful. And if anything ever would have been meant to be shot with Lomo cameras, it would be this psychedelic, holy hill.
Valerio Spada went beyond his comfort zone and stepped right into the battlefield with his camera. He went to Naples, Italy, an area populated by the Camorra Mafia but also home to Annalisa Durante who, at the age of 14, was killed by a bullet aimed at a Camorra boss. What happened to her could've happened to any of the girls portrayed in the book Gommorah Girl. This work is about Annalisa. It's about all of the girls that, just like her, seem doomed to an unfair destiny - which, hopefully, may still change.
Two days from now, Lempertz will hold a sale of 195 photographic prints. The lineup is as varied as the history of photography itself.

Take a look at the fascinating mix.
