International Event

Ferdinando Scianna. Travel Story Memory

until 27/01/2020, Guggenheim Museum, Venice

The Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice is hosting a retrospective of Ferdinando Scianna (Bagheria, PA, 1943), one of modern international photography’s leading figures of reference.

Scianna began to enjoy photography in the 1970s, speaking of the culture and traditions of his land of origin, Sicily, through his pictures. His long artistic career wound through various themes, current affairs, war, travel, local religious beliefs, all linked by one common thread: the search for form in the chaos of life.

In over 50 years of stories, suggestions are certainly never lacking: from Bagheria to the Bolivian Andes, from religious festivals – the beginning of his career - to his experience in the world of fashion which began with Dolce & Gabbana and his iconic model, Marpessa.

Then there is reportage, landscapes, mirrors, animals and portraits of masters from the world of art and culture, such as Sciascia or Cartier-Bresson, to mention but a few.
