Unexpected treasures, ancient cities to rediscover, new revelations to explore
From the ancient Roman city of Veleia to the famous Etruscan liver, from the protohistoric remains of the Terra Maricola civilisation to the necropolis and precious Roman and Carolingian funerary monuments. It is a lesser-known archaeological Emilia, but one that is rich in fascination and extraordinary museums and finds that allow visitors to reconstruct the history of the territory encompassing the provinces of Parma, Piacenza and Reggio Emilia, and of much of humanity. A history that projects visitors into the Roman, Etruscan and ancient worlds that have left their traces in Emilia since prehistoric times.
Discover Emilia by following the revealing gaze of Luigi Ghirri (Scandiano 1943 - Reggio Emilia 1992), among the most important photographers of the Italian twentieth century. Ghirri argued that it is precisely the most usual corners, those we always have before our eyes, that can reveal unexpected aspects. Hence his "Seeing Beyond", which is the title of the calendar of project events promoted by the cities of Reggio Emilia, Modena and Parma, to which Luigi Ghirri was linked and fundamental to his artistic production. For the 30th anniversary of his death, the cities of Visit Emilia - the Land of Slow Mix are dedicating exhibitions and initiatives to the Emilian photographer. A unique opportunity to immerse oneself with new eyes in the artistic, cultural and contemporary wonders of Parma and Reggio Emilia, imagining to follow in the steps and gaze of Ghirri, who dedicated to some of Emilia's most beautiful palaces and views unrepeatable images and visions.
First stop, the Palazzo del Governatore in Parma, which from December 17, 2022 to February 26, 2023 hosts the free exhibition "Labyrinths of Vision. Luigi Ghirri 1991," a never-before-seen work on the cultural landscape with more than 150 photographs.
