Palazzo Callas, situated in Sirmione, will stage an exhibition devoted to the quintessential beauty of the Italian landscape through the eyes of Magnum photographers.

Featuring over 50 archival photographs of Italy’s landscape, from photographers such as Robert Capa, Elliot Erwitt, Richard Kalvar, Inge Morath, among others, the show offers glimpses of the country’s winding streets and cobbled piazzas, beach vistas and classical architecture.

In addition to the group selection of Magnum photographers’ work on display, Paolo Pellegrin will present 50 images taken during his explorations around the Sirmio peninsula.
