ALCANTARA MAXXI | LOCAL ICONS - URBAN LANDSCAPES. NORTH-SOUTH 2017
At MAXXI from 3 to 26 February 2017, “LOCAL ICONS. Urban Landscapes north/south” is the third and final stop in a trip in search of images defining places of remembrance specific to a culture, in order to re-examine them in light of new projects. After having captured Rome’s soul in 2015 and comparing the cultural essence of eastern and western metropolises in 2016, this creative reinterpretation project of local icons now shines a light on northern and southern cities of the world.
