19 June-7 Sept 2008. An exhibition of works by the Czech photo-reporter Josef Koudelka, born in 1938 in a small village in Moravia. For the first time in Italy it is possible to see his complete photographic documentation of the so-called Prague spring, 40 years after the invasion of the Czech capital by the Soviet army. Koudelka, who was a young photographer at the time, immortalized the sudden arrival of the military tanks on the streets of Prague, the public manifestations, the tears and desperation, the amazement and rage of the citizens who tried to stop the tanks with their bodies. His black-and-white shots, which still surprise the viewers with their power and humanity, became the symbols of the resistance and the icons of those dramatic events.
