Until March 2025, the Museums Palace of Reggio Emilia hosts the exhibition Luigi Ghirri. Zone di Passaggio, an exciting exhibition that puts Luigi Ghirri's work into a dialogue with the projects of renowned international artists such as Mario Airò, Gregory Crewdson, Paola Di Bello, Paola De Pietri, Stefano Graziani, Franco Guerzoni, Armin Linke, Amedeo Martegani and Awoiska van der Molen.

The exhibition suggests a reflection on darkness with the aim of telling the important value that it has in the collective imagination. The starting point is the numerous nocturnal works that Luigi Ghirri created during his production. They are the places "lit in a provisional way, or the spaces that experience their own discreet semi-darkness and which only temporarily turn bright in a festively provisional way", in which an alternative reading of reality is activated.

The exhibition, starting from the experiments with the medium and on visibility in the late sixties, carried out by Franco Guerzoni with Luigi Ghirri and Franco Vaccari, therefore presents the work of important authors who with their works offer "micro-ruptures", generated by sudden illuminations, capable of revealing the relationship between light and darkness hidden in nature.
