Fondazione Stelline presents a retrospective dedicated to the rediscovery of Gian Butturini (Brescia, Italy, 1935–2006), a sensitive and authentic photographer who was constantly on the scene during the major conflicts of the ‘70s and ‘80s, both in Italy and abroad.
The exhibition looks back on his long photographic journey in search of the meaning of people and its humanity—a journey which took the photographer to the ends of the earth. These are geographical, but also cultural and mental borders, which Butturini experienced as his own as he identified with the condition of the “ultimi” (the last).
