The Belle Époque in the lens of an amateur
Acquired in 2004 by Giuseppe Panini Fotomuseo, the catologue of Francesco Carbonieri is a valuable photographic collection which consists of over 3,500 glass plates, negatives and slides – including 200 rare autochromes color – and about 1000 positive.
Made almost entirely in stereoscopic (a technique which allowed a three-dimensional vision), more than 70 images in the exhibition give to the witness a luxurious and carefree atmosphere that was typical of the upper middle class during the Belle Époque: glimpses of family life as well as the long road trips to the most famous tourist destinations of the second decade of the twentieth century: Biarritz, Paris, the Cote d’Azur.
