The GRAND TOUR, was a fabulous, and now legendary, journey taken by our ancestors to track the visible memories of the cultural heritage which was part of their identity.
Curated by Michele Bonuomo and Mara Firetti
Firetti Contemporary is pleased to announce the opening of The Grand Tour: A photographic journey in Italy. The exhibition will be inaugurated by His Excellency Dr. Claudio Rammuno, Deputy Head of Mission, First Secretary and Head of the Consular Chancery Italian Embassy, Abu Dhabi.
For the first time in the United Arab Emirates, forty vintage photographs and four original albums by the most prominent photographers working in Italy between 1850 and 1890 will be exhibited, allowing viewers to experience the beauty and grandeur of Italy's scenic history. Attendees will enjoy the nostalgia of “must-see” tour destinations in famous cities such as Milan, Venice, Florence, Rome, Naples, Pompeii, Palermo, Taormina, and others.
With this exhibition, Firetti Contemporary opens its doors to cross-cultural exchange of Italian history and culture through the medium of photography.
