The exhibition is a surprising fresco of the evolution and contradictions of the city. An overall portrait capable of capturing the open, bold frankness that distinguishes them in the details, gestures and looks of the Romans. Poetry and beauty, strength and violence, historical architecture and the transformation of the suburbs weave a story full of emotion.
The exhibition catalog, published by Electa, tells sixty years of photography of the great reporter in the Capital, as well as bringing together the documentation of books and contact sheets that enrich the exhibition.
