This bilingually named exhibition – Prospettiva. Viaggio negli archivi di Fondazione Fiera Milano / Perspective. Journey through the Archives of Fondazione Fiera Milano – offers the public the opportunity to see the photographic collections of the Archivio della Fondazione Fiera Milano. It is curated and designed by OMA’s Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli and marks the launch of the Archivi fotografici project, resulting from a new partnership between Fondazione Fiera Milano, AFIP International (Association of Professional Italian Photographers) and Triennale di Milano. The exhibition portrays Italian and European society and economy in the last century through the lens of the cultural legacy of Fiera Milano, the international trade fair in Milan which presented the newest industrial developments and products since it was first organized in 1920. Aiming to create an immersive visual journey, OMA has designed a non-linear collage of stories, formats and experiences, highlighting a selection of events, testimonies and reconstructions that made the fair a door to the rest of the world, exploring themes that anticipated the challenges of our time.
