Great black and white and colour photographers

Photography introduces the visitor to the triumphant and decadent American universe, starting with black and white and absolute masters such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Diane Arbus and Elliott Erwitt, and then moving on to the colour images of Steve McCurry, Vanessa Beecroft and Annie Leibovitz.

Themes that go deep into American culture and society

The itinerary is enhanced by creations by the masters of Pop Art and the protagonists of Street Art: Keith Haring, Mr. Brainwash, Obey and Banksy. The sections deal with some of the most important themes in order to go deep into the analysis of American culture and society. Many of the artists, including Banksy and Paul Insect, immortalize an America in turmoil, while Steve McCurry recounts the most tragic day for Americans: 11 September 2001. The exhibition also reserves space for the most topical issue in the social debate (inside and outside the United States), namely Black Lives Matter.
