Photography exhibit of WWII life at arteitalia @ Arte Italia

The faces of NeoRealismo: The New Image in Italy, 1932–1960 is an exhibition that portrays life in Italy through the lens of photography before, during, and after World War II. The exhibit features some 110 prints — primarily vintage photographs — captured by more than 50 Italian photographers, paired with the original magazines, photobooks, and newspapers in which they circulated. These are curated from private collections and on view exclusively at arteitalia.

The exhibit is the most comprehensive curated collection of journalistic images capturing the faces of Italy after World War II. NeoRealismo toured Europe to great acclaim and recently made its U.S. debut at New York University’s Grey Art Gallery.  Exclusively sponsored by the E. L. Wiegand Foundation, NeoRealismo has exhibited at the Museo Italo Americano in San Francisco — and now at arteitalia in Reno.
