GIOVANNI GARGIOLLI’S RECORDS OF YESTERYEAR ITALY

GIOVANNI GARGIOLLI’S RECORDS OF YESTERYEAR ITALY

For those curious to see how Rome and Italy looked like more than one hundred years ago, an exhibit at Trastevere currently offers this chance: Giovanni Gargiolli‘s photographs will be on display at Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo e la Documentazione until 30 January 2015.
Founder of the National Cabinet for Photography, Gargiolli took on the task of recording monuments and landscapes which soon would have undergone deep changes (not to say demolition) according to the Italy’s need of modernization from 1861 (when she was unified) onwards.
A photographic journey from North to South, which becomes somehow a sentimental journey.
Where: Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo e la Documentazione, via di San Michele 18 (Trastevere area).
When: Mon-Fri 10am-6pm. Until 30 January 2015. Special opening on 7 December!
