The show

With memory and passion. From Capa to Ghirri. Masterpieces from the Bertero Collection, from 20 February to 10 May 2020, CAMERA - Italian Center for Photography comes alive through the stories and tales hidden in the most significant images of the Bertero Collection, a unique collection in Italy for the originality of the setting and quality of the photographs present .

Among the over two thousand images that make up the collection, the curators have chosen more than three hundred, made by about fifty authors from all over the world: among many, the names of Bruno Barbey, Gabriele Basilico, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Robert Capa stand out , Lisetta Carmi, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mario Cattaneo, Carla Cerati, Mario Cresci, Mario De Biasi, Mario Dondero, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Franco Fontana, Luigi Ghirri, Mario Giacomelli, Jan Groover, Mimmo Jodice, William Klein, Herbert List, Duane Michals, Ugo Mulas, Ruth Orkin, Federico Patellani, Ferdinando Scianna, Franco Vimercati and Michele Zaza.

Curated by Walter Guadagnini, director of CAMERA, with the collaboration of Barbara Bergaglio and Monica Poggi, the exhibition tells about our past and the roots of our present, as well as the evolution of Italian and international photography from the 1930s to the end of the century.


In the rooms of CAMERA, history becomes the background on which countless stories develop, which speak to us of a country and many countries. The protagonists are farmers, priests, families, noblewomen, soldiers, children and especially the photographers who, with the most disparate accents and languages, have imprinted the memory of these events on film. The masters of Italian and world photography have created a story that was born in Italy as soon as it was freed from fascism, where, despite the rubble and poverty, the desire to go out on the street, dance and use the remote corners of nature is intensely felt to make love instead of hiding from the enemy.
