Martina Bacigalupo, from the Gulu Real Art Studio series, # 13, 2013, 6 chromogenic prints

The Other Look. Italian Photographs 1965-2018.

Works of over seventy authors from the Donata Pizzi Collection have traveled to Rome. The L’Altro Sguardo exhibition encapsulates the power of Italian photography from the mid-1960s to today, witnessing monumental moments of history that shaped Italian photographers today. 

Previously displayed at the Milan Triennale in 2016, L’Altro Sguardo has made its way into Palazzo delle Esposizioni this summer. Being divided up into four sections, the different generations, expressive works, and mediums of art are on public display to promote the knowledge of the most original interpreters in Italian photography. The four sections include themes such as feminism, identity and relationships, reportage photography and social reporting, and lastly, the use of different mediums.

Each piece of art, so distinct and so individual, contribute something that makes the exhibit’s collection wholesome. The best part about this exhibit is the variety of artwork that come from different times. No matter which era at which it was produced, the art shows the dedication, struggle, and the progression of Italian photography, that is still visible in the collection’s newer pieces of art.
