Hi everyone! I am pleased to invite you to another outdoor day trip, where we can enjoy fantastic views, being fully immersed in the nature, at about one hour by car!
"Landscapes", the photo exhibition realized by the Protected content in collaboration with Magnum Photos International and Foundation Henri Cartier-Bresson of Paris, presents Protected content and white images personally selected by Henri Cartier-Bresson, taken between the ‘30s and the ‘90s between Europe, Asia and America.
Although some people also appear in some photos, the author's attention is particularly focused on the environment, so we can talk about Landscape of Nature and Landscape of Man.
At the same time, there is also an exhibition about Henri Matisse, and “Il Ferdinando” about the Alps and their role in the history (about fortifications and natural frontiers: very interesting).
