Memorandum – Historic Photography Festival

From December 2nd, 2011 until Januray 13th, 2012 Rome will host “Memorandum”, a Historic Photography Festival

Memorandum hosts 10 photographic exhibits made up of extracts provided by prestigious museum archives, foundations, industry, photography agencies and authors who show the different aspects of society and Italian history throughout the years.


Among the artists whose work will be exhibited is Giancarlo Terreo, photographer and printer/developer, with a collection that illustrates, through beautiful pictures and prints, the social composition from Italy to the Balkans. 


The expositions begins continues with very rare shots from the Crimea by Robertson and then more recent photographs (early 90s) by Guido Piacenza.


There is also an area reserved for the work of Erminio Sella whose photographs recount his travels to the United States and a number of original prints made with the help of his brother Vittorio. There will also be an interesting video projection all about sports cars thanks to the photographs provided by the Pirelli Archives and some provided by the USA National Archives from 1861 until 1912.
