CAMERA: Torino’s New Photography Museum


On October 1, the city of Torino (Turin) inaugurated Italy’s newest museum. CAMERA, the Centro Italiano per la Fotografia, will showcase Italian and international photography in a 2,000 square meter space just down the road from the Museo Nazionale del Cinema and other sights in Torino’s historic center.

CAMERA plans to stage three main exhibitions each year and five to six smaller installations of alternating Italian and international photography. As part of its mission to promote and share “Italian photographic heritage,” the museum will pay attention to “projects in areas such as anonymous, found and family photography.” It will also host workshops and photography courses for aspiring photographers.

Check out the CAMERA’s exhibition calendar for more details.
