Photography is the key instrument of our communication activities.

Macromicro was founded in 2009 with the aim of raising the awareness of the public, in particular new generations, to the topicality of environmental issues.

The professional experiences of the founders immediately led them to identify photography as the key tool of Macromicro's communication activities.


A universal, documentary and emotional language to reach a wide audience and translate the complexity of environmental issues that characterise our age into an accessible form.

In its fourteen years of existence, the association has forged partnerships with public and private institutions committed to environmental protection and communication.

Macromicro has collaborated with numerous research institutes and realised communication projects in important Italian and international locations.

We believe in the power of images as a tool for broad and inclusive communication, in science as a source of information, in the possibility of women and men to act individually and collectively to contribute to the changes needed for the challenges of the third millennium.
