closed Criminis Imago

The show

The history of the city of Bologna passes through events that took place here, in the city, its surroundings and in the courtrooms. Trials that also involved crimes committed in other places, and landed in the Supreme Court, such as the trials of Ettore Grande and Rina Fort. Thanks to the work of two formidable photojournalists - Walter Shortglieri and Paolo Ferrari - who documented these tragic moments, but which belong to Italian history, today we can see a beautiful exhibition of 100 black and white photographs.


A story told in the exhibition “Criminis Imago. Images of crime in Bologna "at the Oratory of Santa Maria della Vita (via Clavature 8/10) from 23 October to 10 January next, organized by Genus Bononiae. Museums in the city, in collaboration with the Public Prosecutor's Office of Bologna, the State Police and the Carabinieri. Partner of the exhibition is the Minerva publishing house in Bologna, owner of the Fotowall Archive of Walter Shortglieri.
