of the Lithuanian Community in Tuscany
About the Project
We started shooting Remote photos at the end of 2020 to connect with our friends and former clients scattered in the world. A few months later, the Lithuanian community in Tuscany involved us in this project to celebrate its fourth birthday on February 21st.
Lithuanians living in our region are professionals working in various fields: Lithuanian-Italian translators and interpreters; accounting and business consultants; people and culture coordinators; guides and travel guides; architects; medical staff; photographers; painters; music performers and singing poetry composers; journalists; philologists; marketing specialists; professionals working in the fashion industry; athletes; tailors; chefs and other professionals and students.
We met a lot of them virtually at their houses and shot their portrait remotely through the Shutter App. In this time of physical distance, that was a nice way to reconnect and create something together.
The Lithuanian Community
The Lithuanian community in Tuscany was founded on 21st February 2017.
Its aim is to become a point of support for Lithuanians in Tuscany, to promote, develop and carry out different cultural work aimed at preserving, expanding and promoting Lithuanian culture in Tuscany and Italy. They preserve the Lithuanian language, carry education, sports, promote historical memory and public spirit. According to Italian statistics for 2019 data, 345 Lithuanian citizens live here in Tuscany, even though the community counts just over 50 members. If you’re a Lithuanian living in Italy or abroad, you may connect to the community through their Facebook Page.
