14 May-28 June 2009. This exhibition features 122 black and white shots by the Italian photographer Enzo Nocera. The photographs are part of the private collection of the Museo di Fotografia Contemporanea of Cinisello Balsamo.

Nocera has since the 1980s portrayed the rich and heterogeneous universe formed by the people of Brera. His works have grown out of the need to immortalize the faces of the protagonists of this famous Milanese quarter.

Among his favourite subjects are the carpenter Fortunato Sabino, the blacksmith Riccardo Bergottini, the painter Stanley Thomshinsky, the goldsmith-designer Davide De Paoli and many others. His works assume the value of historical documentation and are precious proof of the changes that have come about in Brera and its people in the past 30 years.
