The Youth Information Centres of the Youth Board of Cyprus are organizing an online photography workshop entitled “Symbols: Understanding them and photographing them”, on Thursday 19th May, from 18:30 to 19:30.
This workshop will be carried out by the renowned Italian journalist, author and expert in Symbology (the study of symbols), Furio Morroni.
Mr. Morroni is the author of the book “Divina Cypria” – Discovering the Symbols of Christianity in Cyprus.
During the workshop Mr. Morroni will talk about a historical and cultural treasure that few here in Cyprus know: the 100 symbols that have been depicted or carved in ancient royal and Byzantine churches by Christians living on this island since the beginning of Christianity. He will also explain some of them and what they stand for, so that we will understand their importance, and they become interesting topics for the video and photo camera.
The workshop will be coordinated by Dr. Joseph Hadjikyriakos, Director of the Phivos Stavrides Foundation – Larnaca Historical Archives
