The Near/Far photographic exhibition was born on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of World Cultural and Natural Heritage and is held both at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni and in some libraries of the Institution Libraries of Rome Capital: Europea in Piazza Fiume, Ennio Flaiano at Tufello, Pier Paolo Pasolini at Spinaceto, Enzo Tortora at Testaccio.
On display more than four hundred shots of photographers from countries with the greatest migratory flow to Italy, in which the authors have tried to tell the great cultural and natural heritage of these countries through images, compared with the institutional photographs of the UNESCO World Heritage and Intangible Cultural Heritage sites.
The photographs were divided into five macro themes: 1) Human settlements and peoples' movements; 2) Spirituality; 3) Parties, celebrations, crafts, food and artistic expressions; 4) Natural environment, geo and bio diversity; 5) Portraits.
So we can admire, for example, a man who observes his land between the vertical terraces cultivated in Argapura, Indonesia, or the splendor of the ancient mosque of the city of Bagerhat, in Bangladesh, or the gaze of two girls on their father's shoulders, at Baffa, in Pakistan. And finally Rome with the procession that parades in front of the Colosseum for the anniversary of the independence of Ukraine, in the days of the invasion of the Russian army.
The exhibition is promoted by the Italian National Commission for UNESCO, by Roma Culture, by the Palaexpo Special Company, by the Libraries Institution of Roma Capitale and by the National Research Council - Institute of Mediterranean Studies.
