Photo exhibition in Florence: National Museum of Photography celebrates Alinari
Florence, cultural and artistic centre, hosts an unmissable photo exhibition until 6th January 2013: “Gli Archivi Alinari e la sintassi del mondo. Omaggio a Italo Calvino”.
Rencontres d’Arles and Alinari Foundation celebrate 160th anniversary of “Fratelli Alinari” with an exhibition which combines literature and photography. Christophe Berthoud, the young curator of the showcase, uses Alinari’s archive like a repository of stories.
The exhibition born from “The Castle of Crossed Destinies” in which Calvino associates the narrative code with the iconic one of tarots: some lost wayfarers take refuges into a castle and have to tell their stories through tarots because they’re mysteriously without voice. On this occasion Berthound replaces tarots with photos: the exhibition is composed by 90 pictures, vintage prints and reproductions.
National Museum of Photography is located into a historical building of Florence called “delle leopoldine”; don’t miss the opportunity, spend a relaxing weekend in the cradle of renaissance, book a room with Ars Hotels.
