Sun, Riviera, art, architecture, fashion or cuisine – when you think of Italy, where does your mind go first? Its picturesque landscapes and historic sights attract millions of visitors every year.
The image of “Bella Italia” has been shaped not least by photographs. What was an elaborate craft reserved only for experts 150 years ago is now a snapshot that is part of every trip. This is one of the reasons why the historic photographs in the current exhibition “Images of Italy” seem so familiar.
Why are the Colosseum in Rome and the domes of Florence so instantly recognizable? Photographs of landmarks are etched in our collective memory. If you've ever been to Pisa, you probably have a photo of the Leaning Tower on your smartphone.
Now we invite you to share your memories and pictures with us! We want to know what places you have visited, which moments of pleasure evoke the Italian flair and which experiences stand out in your mind. Simply use the hashtag #italienvoraugen on Instagram so that we can see your photos and stories.
Be inspired by the historic photographs in the current exhibition! The best photos will be published on our Instagram channel and five lucky winners will receive the exhibition catalogue to dream about. Join us and let's celebrate the beauty of Italy together!
