About the Exhibition
“Ritratte” (literally “Portraits”), a photographic exhibition hosted in the Sale degli Arazzi at Palazzo Reale, presents 22 portraits of as many women at the helm of important cultural institutions in Italy taken by photographer Gerald Bruneau. “Ritratte” is a sort of Grand Tour that touches 14 important Italian cities from north to south: from Trieste to Palermo, from Naples to Venice. The initiative aims to highlight the skills of women in various fields of knowledge and help overcome prejudices.
