Gabriele Basilico Photographs from the Maxxi Collections
28 Nov-30 March. The MAXXI pays tribute to the late Milanese photographer Gabriele Basilico (1944-2013), one of Italy's greatest exponents of architectural photography. The more than 70 photographs from the MAXXI Arte and MAXXI Architettura collections document the museum’s association with Basilico, who photographed the construction of the MAXXI itself. The exhibition acts as both a history of the museum and a biography of Basilico who features in a new documentary film also on show.
