About the exhibition
Milan is currently hosting the exhibition “OLIVIERO TOSCANI. Professione fotografo‘, the largest exhibition ever dedicated in Italy to the great photographer as a tribute to his 80th birthday. On show, 800 shots taken by Toscani from the early 1960s to the present day: images and advertising campaigns that have made him known and recognisable throughout the world.
The public has the opportunity to retrace the iconic features of his work together with lesser-known works. The rooms of Palazzo Reale tell the career of a man with a brilliant and provocative gaze who over the years has influenced the customs of several generations and made the world discuss the most disparate topics.
This exhibition – hosted in one of the city’s most prestigious exhibition spaces – was created in continuity with a one-shot initiative organised in the city on 28 February. On the day Oliviero Toscani turned 80 – 28 February 2022 in fact – for 24 hours only hundreds of posters had invaded the city in a sort of diffuse exhibition. On that occasion, the public had clamoured for his works to be made visible in a single exhibition, for a longer period, and hence the idea of the exhibition at the Palazzo Reale.
Tickets and Information
The layout of the exhibition is special and unique, with the rooms of the Palazzo Reale dressed for the first time with posters on the walls, pasted up as if they were on the street.
