NeoRealismo: The New Image in Italy, 1932–1960 poignantly portrays life in Italy through the lens of photography before, during, and after World War II. While neorealism is associated primarily with cinematic and literary depictions of dire postwar conditions, this is the first major museum exhibition to highlight key photographers active at the time. Featuring approximately 175 photographs by over 60 Italian artists, NeoRealismo pairs them with the original publications in which they circulated—illustrated magazines, photobooks, and exhibition catalogues.

The show includes a full calendar of public programs, featuring panels, film screenings and related exhibitions. Click here for the complete list of events.

NeoRealismo: The New Image in Italy, 1932–1960 is organized by Admira, Milan, and curated by Enrica Viganò. The presentation at the Grey Art Gallery is made possible in part by support from the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation; Casa Italiana Zerilli- Marimò, New York University; and Howard Greenberg Gallery, New York. Additional support is provided by the Grey’s Director’s Circle, Inter/National Council, and Friends; and the Abby Weed Grey Trust.
