Fragments. Photographs by Stefano Cigada
Now on  - Sep 20, 2020

Artists tend to be an obsessive bunch – and none more so than Stefano Cigada. After spending many years as a marine photojournalist, Cigada decided to return to his passion for archeology and spent a career capturing the ways certain statues and sculptures of Antiquity, (especially the broken and fragmented ones) appeared to come to life depending on the ever-changing play of natural light upon their surfaces.

Cigada would return to the same statues throughout the year, to study and capture how the seasons and time of day can affect the perception and impact of an artwork. He worked obsessively, striving to capture the sense of completeness that fragmented works suggest in their brokenness when hit with just the right light and perceived from just the right angle, at the perfect ephemeral moment in time.

This exhibition features 21 precious prints that chronicle Cigada's niche obsession and his mission to make these ancient statues 'palpitate'.

Ara Güler
Now on  - Sep 20, 2020

Ara Güler was named one of the seven best photographers in the world by the British Journal of Photography Yearbook, and was also the recipient of countless awards and accolades for his astonishing work. Though he passed away in 2018, his amazing legacy lives on and is the subject of this eponymous monographic exhibition at the Museo di Roma.

Eighty of the acclaimed photojournalist's images will be on display, including iconic portraits of other cultural titans such as Federico Fellini, Pablo Picasso, Salvator Dalì, and Sophia Loren. In addition to this are 45 incredible black-and-white images that capture the soul of Istanbul in the mid to late 1950s.

This powerful retrospective chronicles the changes in Turkish society during these formative years of European cooperation and offers a glimpse through the eyes of a true artist and Turkish cultural hero.

Description

Wondering what life in Rome used to be like? Step into the Museo di Roma in Trastevere and see what Romans wore, ate, danced to, and where they shopped way back when. The exhibits use models, paintings, photos, and videos to bring the bygone era of the city to life.

This special place has a story of its own. In the 17th century, this museum was the Carmelite convent of Sant'Egidio. Nowadays it celebrates the lives and achievements of Romans of the past.

The costumes, popular dances, secular and religious festivals, and handiworks of the locals have all been immortalized here. Possessions of poet Trilussa (1871 - 1950) are here too.

Popular 19th-century activities are brought to life in staged scenes here too: check out costumed characters in a tavern, at an apothecary, at the saltarello dance, and more.

And the fact it's in Trastevere, one of Rome's most historic districts, makes a trip here feel all the more authentic!
