More than 400 extraordinary shots of Magnum photography to capture glimpses of the Italian reality of our times. A country where history and tradition intertwine and collide with innovation and modernity, where the ancient foundations of our cities must meet the new planning requirements and where industries create strange upheavals in uncultivated landscapes, including paradoxes and harmonies.

It is an encounter between tradition and renewal, where the environment and humans coexist among old and new: a photographic exhibition of contrasts and similarities that presents a fascinating journey through past and present, photo exhibits of Italy discussing habits, relationships, present and future, marginalization and solidarity.
