From the 3rd November to the 3rd December the black and white photos by Gianfranco Tagliapietra at Caffè Florian in Venice

On November 3rd at 11am, Caffè Florian in St. Mark’s Square, will host the exhibition of black and white photos by Gianfranco Tagliapietra, one of the most renown Venetian photographers. The images, representing the main moments of the great flood of 4th November 1966, will be exhibited, at the same time, in the Caffè Florian in Venice and in the Florian Firenze, located in Via del Parione, Florence. In the Liberty Room of the Venetian Florian, also some pictures of the flood that struck the city of Florence that same day will be exhibited, thus creating a strong supportive twinning between the two cities that endured terrible damages on that fateful 4th November 1966.

He has been working for the main agencies (Associated Press, Ansa, Reuters) and for many Italian newspapers. He is co-owner of the Interpress Photo Agency.
