"The Myth of Mediterranean Sea" Exhibition Travels Across Russia

The traveling exhibition, "The Myth of Mediterranean Sea," opens on October 25 at the State Central Museum of Contemporary History of Russia in Moscow and features 21 works from the UniCredit Art Collection by famed Italian photographer, Mimmo Jodice.


Curated by Walter Guadagnini, Chairman of the UniCredit for Art Scientific Committee, the exhibit is designed to celebrate Italian culture by showcasing the Neapolitan photographer's work at four venues across the Russian Federation.  Jodice's photographs represent the spirit and history of Italy through his exploration and portrayal of its cultural heritage.


These photographs were taken in the mid-1980s and belong among his most famous series, including Mediterraneo and Isolario.  His favorite subjects are testimonies of the past - whether works of art or archaeological sites - and the natural landscape, both of which are in constant dialogue between the past and present, memory and documentation.  In this exhibit, the ancient statues represent an extraordinary portrait series.


UniCredit is proud to support this exhibit by providing works on loan from our collection, which is among the largest corporate collections in Europe, to a country that is deeply valued by our Group.  Our support underscores our dedication to the many communities in which we live and work and to their cultural development.
