Serendipity is a street-portrait photo project signed by the Tuscan photojournalist Tommaso Pini and inspired by people he met along the “Camino de Santiago de Compostela” - the Way of St. James.

Serendipity. I volti del camminoThe exhibition at Salaborsa – Piazza Coperta (25 October - 20 November) - curated by the Tourist Board of Spain and the Tourist Board of Galizia Region, features a selection of those genuine portraits seized along the walking route of 800 kilometres, divided into 25 stops. On show 20 photos of landscapes and 50 portraits.

In August 2014, the photographer Tommaso Pini and his friend Francesca decided to follow the French route from Saint-Jean-Pied-du-Port to Santiago de Compostela. As the days passed by, Tommaso started a photo research about the meaning of the “Camino”, detected through the gazes of pilgrims. He just asked them to cling to their backpacks and look at the camera. Because a pilgrim's backpack contains only what is essential. Then the gaze tells about the psychophysical balance between exterior effort and interior serenity (Serendipity...)

On this occasion, Salaborsa librarians are proposing some books, guides, vademecum about the “Spirit routes”.
