Photography, art of image

Photography is an art, the art of image. Through it we can visit places far away from us without moving and remember important moments also after a long time. Our expert guide will tell you the whole history of photography, from its birth in the 19th century with the first “daguerreotype” to the current use of this art in the era of social media. Different Italian cities safeguard important testimonies about the development of photography: first of all the wonderful Florence, where you can find the Fratelli Alinari, the most ancient company working in the photography’s field, active from 1852. But also Milan and Lombardy in general offer the possibility to investigate the history of this art. Many archives and foundations with impressive catalogues and collections of photos, providing documentary evidence of cities, people and life in general. We can take you also in Milan’s and Turin’s museums and art galleries where learn more about the fascinating art of photography. And if you are a real photo lover you can take part to a walk with a professional photographer. Maybe during one of the many events concerning this unique world.
