  • Sixty photographic prints depicting thirty-seven antique sculptures, covering a wide variety of types: Roman portraits from both the Republican and the Imperial periods
Full Description
Faces of Rome presents refined photographic research by Lugi Spina on the subject of ancient portraiture, carried out on the sculpture collection of the Capitoline Museums, housed in the Centrale Montemartini in Rome. At over 600 statues, the collection is one of the most important in the world. The photographs of the pieces have not been ordered and classified according to style and chronological order: instead, the author has set them out according to a system of evocations and similarities between the assorted faces, which are identified after long observation and deep analysis, and revealed through the skilful use of light and shadow. Text in English and Italian.
