‘”Via!” – Fotografia di strada da Amburgo a Palermo’ is a photography exhibition that is taking place at the Museo di Roma in the Trastevere district of Rome until the 30th April 2016. ‘Via’ is the Italian word for both ‘go’ and ‘street’ – using a play on words – while the rest of the exhibition’s title can be translated as ‘Street photography from Hamburg to Palermo’.
The exhibition is the result of a photographic project that was started in 2014 by the Goethe Institut. Throughout one year, ten photographers, five in Germany and five in Italy, photographed public places in their cities according to the regulations of street photography. You will visit the streets of Augsburg, Berlin, Hamburg, Iserlohn, Bologna, Naples, Rome, Palermo and Treviso; spontaneous moments of everyday life that can also often be extraordinary, humorous, touching and even confusing at times.
