Twin towns or sister cities are a form of legal and social agreement between towns, cities, counties, oblasts, prefectures, provinces, regions, states, and even countries in geographically and politically distinct areas to promote cultural and commercial ties. The modern concept of town twinning, conceived after the Second World War in 1947 was intended to foster friendship and understanding between different cultures and between former foes as an act of peace and reconciliation, and to encourage trade and tourism In recent times, town twinning has increasingly been used to form strategic international business links between member cities.

Twelve photographers from Fototeca Manfrediana’s group visited seven European sister cities of Faenza. The aim of the journey was to discover the cities and describe them through the images which have been taken by someone who never experienced these places before. Photos were collected in a short period of time, just enough to be able to feel and catch the first impression. I traveled to:

Amaroussion (Greece)
4th-7th April 2013

Timisoara (Romania)
1st-5th May 2013
