6 June-15 July 2012. A month before the Olympic games of London, this exhibition displays a reportage by the Milanese photographer Fabrizio Capsoni, entitled Beijing 2008, the Great Turning. On display are over 200 shots, taken in China in 2008. Its aim is to re-evoke and remember the great changes brought by the Olympic games in China, which have greatly influenced the economical and cultural scene worldwide.
During the summer of 2008, Capsoni has traveled around Beijing and other Chinese cities to document with over three thousand photographs the Olympic spirit, atmosphere and essence of such an important event. He focused among the others on the kindness of the inhabitants, on the organizational capacity of the Chinese population as well as on the quality of life, liveabibility and modernity of China.
