With their evocatively beautiful light, the images on display document the wonders of Italy, unique in their variety and harmony.

This unique project has been conceived to present the public with a never-seen-before views of Italy. The photos allow visitors to discover the wonders of the country, ranging from major cities to cultural centres, from the seaside to the Alps.

Following the successful showcase at the Palazzo del Quirinale in Rome, the exhibition is now touring the world: Moscow, Ho Chi Minh City, Melbourne, City of Gold Coast and Fremantle.

The exhibition of Massimo Sestini’s photographs in South Australia is organized by the Italian Consulate in Adelaide within the framework of the “Vivere all’italiana” (Italian lifestyle) program financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. The initiative is realised thanks to the cooperation of the Italian Police, under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Interior.
