Beyond the walls of Rome | An exhibition to tell the reality of the Roman suburbs

Beyond the walls of Rome there is a world to discover. Not far from those giants of antiquity and history that decreed this city as the capital of Italy, there are different realities; although neighbors, there are places that seem very distant from the Colosseum, St. Peter's, the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo: the suburbs of the capital, those areas more or less recently arisen, especially in comparison with the historical center of the city, which is always the heart of Rome.

What the suburbs tell us
The photo exhibition Oltre le mura di Roma (Beyond the Walls of Rome) is dedicated to these area; it takes places at the MACRO museum in Testaccio up to March 10, 2016. Under the art direction of Francesco Zizola, Oltre le mura di Roma is a photo report collected at the end of a contest held last year to tell the city from the point of view of those who live or are just passing through different realities, often difficult and problematic in these locations.

A competition to tell the reality of the Roman suburbs
The winners of the contest, selected by a panel of internationally renowned experts, exhibit their works. Five reportage are exhibited as well: photographers include Stefano De Luigi, Davide Monteleone, Angelo Turek, Thomas Protta and Francesco Zizola himself.
