40 masters of photography and 150 images recounting the Belpaese: beauty, contradictions and a look to the future

To mark the 70th anniversary of the Italian Republic, MAXXI is presenting a group exhibition featuring shots by great Italian and international photographers who have focused on Italy: a poetic and yet documentary, socialand institutional “atlas” of the Italy of recent decades. On show are sublime and blighted landscapes, ideal cities and neglected suburbs, great architecture and marginal urban spaces.

The exhibition layout presents four sections, enriched by videos and photo projections and by the special project Inside Out by JR, installed in the museum square.
