This exhibition at the Vittoriano in Rome has been organised by the Polo Museale del Lazio in association with the RIBA and the British School at Rome. The exhibition brings together a carefully selected set of images from the many thousands that the RIBA holds of the city of Rome, from its landscape to close archaeological detail, co-curated by RIBA Photographs Curator Valeria Carullo, Dr Marco Iuliano of the University of Liverpool and Vittoriano director Gabriella Musto.
These photographs of Rome, selected from the thousands within the RIBA Collections, are divided into four complementary sections: Antiquity, Modernity, Urban Landscapes and Atmospheres. The selection of photographs and their arrangement in sequences, suggested by visual analogies, are intended to stimulate appraisal through the construction of a timeless narrative.
The photographers featured include James Anderson, Tim Benton, Richard Bryant, Ralph Deakin, Ivy and Ivor de Wolfe, Richard Pare, Monica Pidgeon and Edwin Smith. Their images date from the birth of the medium to the present day.
