Faces, stones, the city: Mario Carbone, Emilio Gentilini 1952–1985, photographs from the collection of the Museum of Rome in Trastevere

01/03 - 13/10/2013
Museo di Roma in Trastevere

On display 100 vintage photographs by two great photographers, Mario Carbone and EmilioGentilini, shot since 1952, some of which have never been exhibited.

Many similarities between these two photographers: a  peculiar choice of black and white and expressive faces, both of them capture different aspects, issues and characters that contribute to the narrative of Rome that is picturesque but also already changing. The two authors depict a valuable heritage of generous and vital humanity that blends with the history of the city they inhabit.
