A few words

The Cosmopolis Festival, in collaboration with the Italian Embassy in Greece and the Italian Cultural Institute of Athens, in the framework of the initiative “Tempo Forte”, present the photographic exhibitions of two distinguished Italian photographers, Bruna Biamino and Paolo Morello, on Greece and architecture. We would also like to thank the Honorary Vice Consul of Italy in Kavala Mr. Federico Lazaridis for his cooperation.

This double solo exhibition, curated by Aphrodite Oikonomidou, is a visual tribute to the undeniably strong cultural relationship that unites Greece and Italy, but also an opportunity to further strengthen the cultural exchanges between Greece and Italy, which have great potential for development.

The first exhibition of Sicilian photographer Paolo Morello is a photographic research and documentation of the most important archaeological sites in Greece and Major Greece in Southern Italy.

The second, by the Torrinese photographer Bruna Biamino, presents examples of architecture from the 1920s and 1930s, which can also be found in the Dodecanese.

The two Italian artists, each with their own style and personal sensibility, and with architecture as their common axis, have identified cultural roots, associations and mutual influences between the Aegean and the Adriatic. Starting from the glorious antiquity and the other from the interwar era, they recorded with their lens architectural testimonies of the common history of the two countries from antiquity to modernism. The exhibited photographic works offer the viewer the opportunity to discover, enjoy and deepen their knowledge of the architectural treasures that our country hides, through the careful gaze of two Italian photographers who claim to be admires of Greece as well as Philhellenes!

Duration of the Exhibition: 18 August – 5 September 2021
