"A visit to Marrakech was a great shock to me. This city taught me color", Yves Saint Laurent said.
What our participants said about their experiences in Discover Marrakech
ANTONELLO from Italy
ELISABETH from ITALY
From the old Médina, where the traditions live, to the new part, where people try to be more “modern”, Marrakech is a crowded place, full of people and crazy drivers everywhere, but also, Marrakech is a mix of colours and smells, that surprised every corner you turn.
I could never be grateful enough to had the opportunity to see, smell and live this amazing city as Marrakech.
A special thanks goes to Massimiliano and Gabriele and their project Let me Italian you . They made this experience unique and unforgettable with their workshop and made me hug again friends that I met in another project that I participated and also made me meet a lot of new amazing people from different countries. THANK YOU ALL!
ANNAROSA from ITALY
I will always keep in my mind this beautiful experience, the twins and all old and new friends met during Discover Marrakech project, together with the colours, sounds and smells of this vibrant and fascinating city... It was really an amazing experience, see you at the next project! Thanks for all guys!
SAMANTHA from ITALY
"Surround yourself with people who push you, who challenge you, who make you laugh, who make you better, who make you happy". I think this is the perfect phrase to describe the Let me Italian you family. Everytime I travel with them I feel like home. Everytime I find a group of people ready to share their passion, to compare, to help each other.
This time I flew with them to Marrakech, ready to discover a new culture and a new continent. What to say, I was surprised by this city, both for good and for bad. I think the best adjective to describe Marrakech is "contradictory": from the old Medina to the super luxury hotels, from the confusion of the souks and Jamaa El Fna to the tranquility of the terraces and the Riads.
SILVIA from ITALY
I lived an experience of growing my skills and confronting with other photographers and lovely people who share the same passion for photography, led by the twins Massimiliano and Gabriele Ragusa who have the ability to make this experience in Letmeitalian project, unique and unforgettable. I Love them and Letmeitalian you !
PAOLA from ITALY
This has been my third experience with Let me Italian you and won't be the last, of course! Marrakesh has been intense and it made me get to know a different reality than the one I live everyday. I would have spent more days in Marrakesh both for the city and the people I've met!
Thank you so much for the great opportunity!
ABBY from MEXICO
Twins and guys group, thank you very much for the opportunity to discover together Marrakech, the city of the red walls, a mystical but exhausting city, where you always had to be with eyes wide open in the main square to avoid being run over by a motorcyclist , walking and getting lost in its streets was a great experience, see everywhere children who love football, cats, smells of spices, steaming meals, songs, prayers of mosques, and the square always full of people, colors of mosaics, storytellers, dancing snakes, men with monkeys, women who make henna tattoos, overwhelming vendors, acrobats, for a moment I felt inside an overwhelming movie where I wanted to say: STOP! hehehe
Actually another world for what we are used to live, so I thank you infinitely for organizing this special edition and take us to this corner of the world where I will remember forever. THANK YOU!
ADRIANA from ITALY
I came home last Monday from a trip to Marrakesh. It was a photography workshop - one of those organized by the very talented twins at Let me Italian you that I am certain you've heard me brag about.
It was 30+ photographers happily walking the streets of the red city, snapping away and defying the ever present "No photos!!" " No Photos!!".
It was FAMILY. It became family from the very start, as it always happens in these reunions. We saw old friends again and we made new ones. We spoke more than one language together - lucky me! - and most of all, we did what we love best - taking photos!!
STEFANIA from ITALY
Discover Marrakech è stata la mia terza partecipazione al progetto Let me Italian You. Si è rivelata fin da subito un miscuglio di senzazioni ed emozioni, ha risvegliato tutti i miei sensi e per ciascuno ho più ricordi; il canto del Muezzin che pervadeva l'aria e si infilava nei souk e i colori vividi, a contrasto in ogni dove rimangono fra i più forti. Ho incontrato un'umanità che solo al turista distratto pare essere lì unicamente per vendere ad ogni costo. Osservare i bambini per strada, donne e uomini al lavoro attraverso l'obiettivo della mia Nikon è stato un crescendo di emozioni.
Torno a casa soddisfatta, appagata e con la voglia di ripartire per il prossimo Discover... domani! Grazie Gabriele e Massimiliano Ragusa, adoro sempre più il vostro progetto Let me Italian you, mi sa che non c'è tre senza quattro!
ANNA from POLAND
Time spent in Morocco was wonderful. A beautiful city with a richness of colors and fragrances. Inspiring, an imagination stimulating place.
Thank you Let me Italian you and all participants of the discovery Marrakech for this experience.
I hope to see you all soon.
ELEANA from ITALY
My first time in Africa, the first day was very complicated for me. It was not easy to meet such a different culture, and to overcome the diffidence. Hearing the ideas of the different participants of Discover Marrakech is always very helpful to understand the point of view of other people, and the discussions help to grow.
Thanks to Let me Italian you for this opportunity.
MAGDA from POLAND
Participating in “Discover Marrakesh” project made my Moroccan photography dreams come true! This town is exceedingly lively, noisy, colourful. Motor scooters, cars, horse-drawn cabs and donkey-drawn carts flood the streets. On the narrow backstreets of medina you meet women in traditional dresses with their faces covered, men in djellabas and running kids. Palm trees, orange trees, olive trees and cactuses enhance the sense of Maghreb.
During workshops, we – a group of photography enthusiasts from all over the world – photographed medina nooks, markets, small shops, lively eateries, mystic gardens, people, cats, motorbikes, cafes… Each of us made hundreds of photos, each of us in her or his own unique style. Each of us found something special and put it into own pictures. Street photo workshops with Isabela Vial and with Yassine Alaoui Ismaili emboldened us to look deeper than during casual sightseeing. Taking pictures of models in Menara Gardens learned us to appreciate the diversity of feminine beauty.
“Discover Marrakesh” will be in my memory as an unforgettable experience, unique in every respect!

LUDMILA from POLAND
Thank you very much Massi and Gabri for another and amazing project with You. For peculiar journey in time to the city where time stopped a few hundred years ago and where I had opportunity to meet wonderful people.
Marrakech – a city of a thousand colors and smells, ubiquitous bustle, artisans, hypnotizing music and muezzin's singing calling for prayer. A place where shopping is a show and bargaining is an art and a way of life. At the same time, you can experience the peace of the riads, the view of the snowy peaks of the Atlas mountains and where there is always time for a glass of tea with mint.
SARA from USA
Another amazing travel photography experience with Letmeitalianyou! This time with Discover Marrakech...5 days of photography and full immersion in Moroccan culture.
Impossible to forget the sights and sounds of Marrakech, from the souk to the kasbah, from the tajin to the mint tea!
ANDREA from Italy

JOANNA from POLAND
Marrakech, the red city of Morocco, turned out to be a photographer's paradise. I had the great pleasure to be there with photography project Discover Marrakech and I would go there again, and again, and again to encounter this mesmerizing pallette of colours and shapes. Its streets full of people and cats, scents and sounds, colourfull fabrics and spices, make you feel astonished, seduced, overwhelmed, and angry at the same time.
It was my third time with Let Me Italian You workshops, because they always provide the best adventure. In Marrakech, I've met fantastic people with the same love for travel and photography who showed me different perspectives on photography and inspired me to grow.
And when you try this experience just once, it's really hard to stop.
CECILIA from ITALY
Lo dicevo da molto tempo di voler uscire dall'Europa, e grazie a Let me Italian you ci sono riuscita. Volevo scappare dai grandi palazzi, dai musei e da qualcosa di già visto: volevo vedere il nulla. Diciamo che Marrakech non è proprio la città adatta per vedere il nulla: il caos regna sovrano (caos organizzato in una maniera che conoscono solo gli abitanti di Marrakech, questo è certo).
Dopo settimane devo ancora meditare su ciò che ho visto e sentito, è una città piena di stimoli, forse troppi. Ma è comunque un buon inizio per questo lungo cammino di cambiamento. Ammetto di aver scattato foto timidamente e con molto timore, chi mi conosce sa che cerco sempre di essere, se non invisibile, almeno di poco disturbo. Alla prossima avventura.
LUCA from Italy
Un’altra avventura con i gemelli, un’altra esperienza meravigliosa. Per me è stata la seconda volta e non posso che confermare le sensazioni positive che si provano a partecipare ad un progetto come questo.
Circondato da persone che condividono la tua stessa passione, stimolato ogni giorno da stupendi compagni di viaggio e da artisti e fotografi affermati; se avete la possibilità non fatevi scappare questa occasione, non c’è modo migliore per affinare la propria tecnica fotografica.
MARIA TERESA from PORTUGAL
"Maria you will join us to Discover Marrakech"?
Yes! For the 4 time I put my self in the hands of the project Let me Italian you and let me be led by the twins Gabriele Ragusa and Massimiliano Ragusa in his first discovery outside Europe.
Marrakech: Prepare the senses for the old red city. Being involved in the heart of action, seduced at once by the mystic atmosphere, the people, the culture, the explosion of color, diversity of flavour, the smells, the sounds. The architecture, the rooftops, the souks.
Ahhhh the endless souks: get lost but just keep going... and discover yourself in a new discovery.
At last but not least, to see old friends, Adriana, Eleana, Samantha, Elisabeth! Meet new people.
The support of amazing professional photographer's!
Massimiliano and Gabriele you are building a big and great family indeed. See you in Lisbon!
