A selection of 30 images by one of Italy's most celebrated photographers traces the history of the 20th century through its protagonists:

Uno sguardo sulla nostra storia- Maurizio Galimberti on display

When: Oct. 8 to Nov. 27, 2022
Where: Castell'Arquato (PC), Palazzo del Podestà

The operation of breaking down and recomposing snapshots that marks the stylistic signature of photographer Maurizio Galimberti is applied to the protagonists of the 20th Century. The author works by giving new life and new meanings to shots taken by others, filtered through the technique of photographic mosaic.

The large-format works portray characters and situations that with the curatorship of Denis Curti become the history of the 20th century. Among the protagonists: Nikita Khrushchev, Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Falcone and Borsellino.

The exhibition brings together part of a project developed by Galimberti with Paolo Ludovici, who produced the works. On the one hand, the project aims at a reflection on history for its value as an experience from which to be able to understand errors; on the other hand, to create a sort of register. A container to keep alive the memory of what should not be forgotten of the past to better understand the present.

The exhibition takes place within the spaces of the Palazzo del Podestà, built in the late 13th century as a palace representing civic power that was used over the centuries by the rulers of Castell'Arquato. Today the main floor houses the council chamber and exhibition spaces.
