An intense account of the history, life­style and culture of Italy since WWII is told through the eyes of the photogra­phers of Magnum Photos – the most important photo agency in the world. Starting with a tribute to its three founders (Henri Cartier-Bresson, Rob­ert Capa, and David Seymour) and their trips to Italy, the exhibition moves on to a chronological overview of imag­es, through a fascinating intertwining of famous and lesser-known photo­graphs; world-famous places and lo­cal, ordinary people; and protagonists of Italian social, political and cultural events since the aftermath of WWII up to the present. 

The exhibition starts at the meeting point between the artistic vocation and reportage, typical of the first half of the 20th century, a jour­ney that not only recalls a polyhedric portrait of Italy and of Italian quintes­sence, but also speaks of a fundamen­tal chapter in the history of photogra­phy itself. It is an attempt to – partially – order the Italian memory through small and big events, special or contin­gent moments. It is an attempt to read both the history and the present to try to interpret the complex physiognomy of contemporaneity.
