200 people, 200 portraits of a never seen Gastel. Faces who: «Have passed on something to me, taught me, touched my soul».

The exhibition presents an unprecedented theme in the multifaceted photographic work of Giovanni Gastel: the portrait. About 200 portraits are on display, featuring the faces of many people from the worlds of culture, design, art, fashion, music, entertainment and politics that Gastel has encountered during his 40-year career.

Faces of people who, as he writes, «have passed on something to me, taught me, touched my soul».  Among them, Barack Obama and Marco Pannella, Roberto Bolle and Zucchero, Forattini and Ferruccio Ferragamo and many others. The installation of this fluid and permeable “collective portrait” is by Lissoni Associati.
