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.

Ever watched the gondoliers of Venice at work like Carlo Naya, or even sailed along?

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.

#ITALIENVORAUGEN – Join in and share your moments with us!

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.
