Camera, the Italian Centre for Photography
Opened to the public in October 2015 providing Italy with a structure for enhancing access to national and international photography, through an open dialogue with artists and institutions.
Contacts & Details
By carrying out studies, experiments and activities on photography, Camera’s cultural offer is designed to generate exchanges, raise questions and explore the representation of reality through images in great depth. Every aspect of photography will be studied as a language, and the outcome will be exhibited with no exceptions in terms of genre or function.
Camera promotes an international network of institutions and personalities, whose collaboration is aimed at the development of new projects and the diffusion of the multiple opportunities offered by the medium to a wide, heterogeneous audience.
With 2,000 square metres of floor space, Camera will be based at number 18 Via delle Rosine, in premises leased from the Opera Munifica Istruzione known as the Isolato di Santa Pelagia, in the building where the very first public school of the Kingdom of Italy was founded.
The Centre will contribute to the vitality of its neighbourhood, which already draws visitors to the National Cinema Museum, the Royal Palace and the Egyptian Museum, as well as numerous private galleries.
