TIZIANA LUXARDO - LUXARDO: LA STORIA CONTINUA
21 may – 30 june
An exhibition that tells the story of Rome through its divas, champions, artists, writers and politicians, a gallery of the famous portrayed by the celebrated Luxardo photographers. Images evoking the atmosphere of past decades, the unique moments of a past that leads right up to the present. To sculpt the shade and light of a physical volume with a lens, to search their subjects' souls with their eyes and reflect their aesthetic depth without betraying reality, these are the ideals that have always been transmitted by Luxardo images.
Curated by: Eva Clausen
The photos of a famous studio that became a milestone. Elio and Aldo Luxardo, two brothers born in Brazil, followed in the footsteps of their father, Alfredo Luxardo, also a photographer, documenting an epoch. Their photographs were characterised by diffused light, reflections and rays of light that sculpted faces and modelled bodies. For years the studio teemed with divas and sports champions, intellectuals and artists, from Pirandello to Marinetti, from Alida Valli to Primo Carnera and, after the war, Sofia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, Federico Fellini, Mastroianni, Gassman and many others.
