The exhibition at the Museo Diocesano dedicated to Italian photojournalist Mario De Biasi celebrates the centenary of his birth and brings together 70 of the most iconic images taken in Milan. De Biasi’s gaze is both lucid and evocative, capable of recounting with immediacy and originality a controversial moment in the history of Italy between the 1950s and 1960s. De Biasi is in fact one of the most appreciated authors of the second half of the Italian twentieth century, who for thirty years documented the history of our country through the pages of Arnoldo Mondadori Editore’s periodical, “Epoca.”
Among the photographs on display, vintage shots and test shots, some are unpublished and depict glimpses of Milan, from the center to the suburbs, in its moment of cultural rebirth. There are the tourists looking out from the roof of the Duomo and crowding the bars of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, but also the commuters at the Porta Romana train station. And then San Babila, the Arco della Pace, glimpses of a now impossible Milan where barges go up the Navigli and everyone marvels at the changing world.
