In its 9th edition, the Pistoia Dialoghi sull’uomo festival is themed on breaking the rules. To mark this, a group exhibition explores the places that creativity takes place in – the studios and ateliers where ideas are born.

The exhibition, which takes place inside the Palazzo Comunale in Pistoia, is composed of 40 images by Magnum photographers, portraying important intellectuals, famous artists, and creatives that made 20th-century history, all in their creative environment. It is a survey of the places and the delicate moments of the creative process.
