TILT is a non-profit cultural association that deals with photography especially with street photography. Mario Mencacci and Arez Prod are respectively President and Vice-President and are the creators and organizers of the PSPI FESTIVAL 2022, THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL STREET PHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL which will take place in the fantastic historical setting of the city of Pisa on 24-25 September 2022. An event that wants to be the start of a fixed appointment every year and that is why this idea has developed. To promote initiatives that allow those who participate to meet new people with the same passion and to be able to group ideas, reflections and everything related to the vast world of photography.
