Opening with a homage to Henri Cartier-Bresson and his journey through Italy in the 1930s, the exhibition presents two series: one by Robert Capa, focusing on the end of WWII, and one by David Seymour, who instead in 1947 photographed the tourists returning to visit the Sistine Chapel. The display continues with Elliott Erwitt, René Burri, Herbert List, Thomas Hoepker, with three images of the triumph of Cassius Clay (later Mohamed Ali) at the Olympics in Rome in 1960; Bruno Barbey, documenting the funeral of Togliatti, a key figure in Italian politics, and Erich Lessing, on the economic boom.
