Poland 1999-2013

The Polish Institute of Rome presents a collection of photographs taken in the Polish city of Gliwice by Florentine photographer Lorenzo Castore. It was in this city on 31 August 1939 that Nazi forces posing as Poles staged an attack against a German radio station, which Germany used as justification to attack Poland the following day. Castore says "I tried to look into the past to understand a little more of the present". Istituto Polacco, Palazzo Blumenstihl, Via Vittoria Colonna 1, tel. 0636000723, www.istitutopolacco.it.
