YESTERYEAR ITALY IN GIOVANNI GARGIOLLI’S PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY

Giovanni Gargiolli photographic exhibit

How many buildings have been disrupted in the past two centuries to make space to those we admire today in the heart of Rome? An exhibit in Trastevere area allows us to have an idea of the deep changes occurred in both the Eternal City and Italy as a whole in the period between 1861 (when the country was unified) and the end of the I World War.
On display 200 pictures by Giovanni Gargiolli, pioneer in the use of photographic technique as a vehicle for historical records. Thanks to him a trace of no-more monuments and lanscapes has come up to us, making of this exhibition a sentimental journey through a piece of Italian modern history.
Where & when: Il viaggio in Italia di Giovanni Gargiolli at Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo e la Documentazione, via di San Michele 18 (Trastevere). Until 30 January 2015. Mon-Fri 10am-6pm. Special opening on Sun 7 December!
Carlito Hotel & Hostel staff will be glad to help you out with more info!
