The exhibition “Mario Biasi. Fotografie 1947 – 2003” is a major retrospective at Casa dei Tre Oci, Venice, dedicated to one of the greatest Italian photographers.

Among the highlights, the series depicting the Italian situation in the 1950s, influenced by the consequences of war, and the sequence “Gli Italiani si voltano” (1954), here shown for the first time in its complete version.
