At the Santa Giulia Museum, from 24 September 2024 to 2 March 2025, as part of Testimoni, the 7th edition of the Brescia Photo Festival, the Municipality of Brescia and Fondazione Brescia Musei present a solo exhibition by Massimo Sestini.

The exhibition recounts the transformation of our country through the eyes of the artist, a unique figure of contemporary international photography and 2015 World Press Award winner.

Specifically, 35 large-format images and about 50 back-stage and in-depth photographs will be on display, in a thoughtful selection of Massimo Sestini’s work, focusing on themes dear to him, such as illegal immigration and the great episodes that have marked Italian history.

The extraordinary aerial images, which have made the photographer recognisable throughout the world, will be displayed in a site-specific installation at the Museum of Santa Giulia: an architectural and artistic context of the highest value that therefore enhances Massimo Sestini’s shots.



The tour is completely free of charge and accessible to the public via the UNESCO Corridor.
