Umanità. Retrospettiva su Gianni Giansanti

Humanity. A retrospective of Gianni Giansanti
15/12/2011 - 26/02/2012
Museo di Roma in Trastevere

“Umanità” (Humanity) is the title of the retrospective exhibition dedicated to the photojournalist Gianni Giansanti, who became famous for documenting the tragic kidnapping of Aldo Moro: from the images of the Via Fani massacre on March 16, 1978 to the exclusive shot of the discovery of the statesman’s corpse on via Caetani on May 9. The latter shot became popular and earned him a mention at the World Press Photo of the same year, when he was only twenty-two.

He was the author of unforgettable reportages and a courageous war photojournalist, particularly during the Balkan conflicts. He has also photographed John Paul II in his many travels. He produced photographs for the covers of Italian and foreign magazines and documented the events in Poland, Haiti, Guatemala, El Salvador, Lebanon, Senegal and Libya, witnessing the facts and protagonists of national and international history.
