The second edition of Buena Vista Social Parco, the photographic contest of the Gallipoli Cognato Park Piccole Dolomiti Lucane, start on 1 August 2017 and will be open until 30 June 2018, in a new "4 seasons" formula. The temporary citizens of the Park area, in fact, will have the opportunity to participate in the competition, taking photographs during all 4 seasons. A hymn to creativity, to nature, to tell, with images and their sharing, the extraordinary heritage of biodiversity present in the Park area.

"The competition addressed to all those who will visit the park, our temporary citizens," says Park President Mario Atlante, "is an idea born following the experiences of managing the Naturarte program. Thanks to this program we have been able to verify a real boom of connections on social channels (Facebook, Instagram, twitter), and already experimented last year with over 200 photos taken part in the contest. For this reason, we decided to continue the path and re-launch with a new formula that could stimulate professional and amateur photographers, with reflex machines or simply smartphones and tablets ".

"Social communication, open, shared", added Marco Delorenzo, Director of the Park, "is a great opportunity, an extra tool, with great potential, that the natural parks, of which the territory of Lucania is particularly rich. These elements must increasingly exploit to narrate the territorial peculiarities and promote the wonderful beauty of these natural environments that must finally stop being reserves and become habitats in which to live in harmony with the most precious resource at our disposal: nature".
