You may recall that I introduced you to amateur photographer Marianna Zampieri in two previous posts. In the first post, we learned how Marianna’s own cat, Arthur, helped her discover her love of photography. In the second post, we saw Marianna’s Passions photography project, where she captures the relationship between cats and the people they live with.
If you haven’t read those posts, I encourage you to do so, as Marianna’s gorgeous photography will surely speak to any cat lover.
And we’re in luck! Today, Marianna has been kind enough to share one of her latest projects with us, C-AT WORK, which looks at cats in the workplace.
When I asked Marianna, who resides in Vicenza, Italy, how she finds her subjects for the C-AT WORK series, she said that she has found some by simply searching on the Internet, while others are suggested to her from people she knows.
I hope you enjoy this latest installment of Marianna’s inspiring photography. Also, be sure to follow Marianna’s I gatti di Vicenza Facebook page that she started with the purpose to help cats find forever homes. Yes! Not only does Marianna photograph cats, but she also organizes events to collect food for homeless cats.

I hope you enjoyed visiting these workplaces today and seeing these “working cats” of Italy.
