#unfiumecheunisce is a photo competition organized for 2019 by the Foce del Tagliamento Nature Reserve Committe, with free registration and without fee, on the months of May, June and July. “L’abbraccio del fiume e l’intreccio degli alberi” (=The embrace of the river and the intertwining of the trees) is an initiative aimed at enhancing the naturalistic, landscape and architectural heritage of the natural areas located at the mouth of the Tagliamento, both in Bibione and in Lignano Sabbiadoro.

The theme for 2019 was the following: the nature, the flora, the fauna, the landscapes and the artefacts that characterize the area of the Tagliamento mouth.

A special jury selected 40 photos, among all those received, to be displayed both at the exhibition at the Bibione Lighthouse in September and October, and at the exhibition at Terrazza a Mare in Lignano Sabbiadoro between October and November.

The mouth of the Tagliamento River is a magical place, rich in flora and fauna, particular and very rare. The area has already been considered a site of community interest and a special protection zone; it is also part of the Natura 2000 Network. Thanks to this competition, it will be possible to admire, with the eyes of the photographer, a reality that is very close to us but that we may not know or take for granted.
