Contest 2020

About Sorrento 2020

The contest, an exhibition and the 2020 calendar on the beauty of the Sorrento Peninsula

The Project

We are a group of professionals working in different sectors, from communication to information technology, from medicine to art.  We have different characters and ages , but with a common passion: our roots.  For this reason we have decided to group together and create a reference for everyone, for both  residents  and foreigners interested in the Sorrento Peninsula. The main purpose of our project is  to share  the beauty and the history of people and places, in order to remember lost habits and to rediscover craftsmanship and tradition.  We have many ideas for the future and we would like to invite you to follow us through this website or our social pages, in order to stay tuned.   To kick off , we initiated  this social photo contest: which  better way  than photos  to tell how much beauty  our land offers?


The Social Photo contest “About Sorrento 2020”  is created to share and promote the tourist beauty of the whole Sorrento peninsula and more.

Our purpose is to collect the most beautiful pictures taken by people love this place. The 12 best photos will be chosen and will be included in  our 2020 About Sorrento calendar. Moreover, they   will also be  subject of a public photographic exhibition.

“Looking at something is very different from seeing it. You don’t see anything until you see its beauty.” – OSCAR WILDE

Beauty will be the theme of this first edition “About Sorrento 2020” : express your concept of beauty through a picture, use  your creativity, maybe you could show us a kind of beauty that is yet to be explored.

Look at the gallery with the 12 photos selected to represent the Sorrento peninsula in the exhibition and in the calendar #aboutsorrento2020
