Faces of Rome, a new photographic exhibition focuses on the beauty of the capital and arrives at the Centrale Montemartini from 18 April to 22 September 2019.
The photographic exhibition proposes a selection of 60 black and white photographs, 50 x 60 cm format, that the photographer Luigi Spina made with an optical bench, a technique already used by the author with high-level results, and then personally printed by hand.
The photographic images depict 37 ancient faces in marble or travertine, significant examples of the Capitoline collections at the Museo Centrale Montemartini, some of which are the subject of several shots and all chosen by the author for their expressive potential. These are portraits from the Republican and Imperial periods, which depict characters whose identity we know, but also faces of strangers, as well as some ideal heads, Roman copies from Greek originals.
Location: Centrale Montemartini, Via Ostiense, 106, Rome
Date: April 18 – September 22
Cost: Starting from 9 Euros
