September brings many new events coming to Florence. One in particular that I am looking forward to visiting is the Photography exhibit at the Museo Nazionale Alinari della Fotografia . It is called In Praise of Negative or in Italian L’ELOGIO DEL NEGATIVO. The exhibit takes you on a journey into the origins of photography on paper in Italy from 1846-1862. Being an avid photographer this is a very intriguing event for me. It opened on September 9th and will run until October 24th.
Hours: Monday, Thursday 3pm-7pm, Tuesday 10am-3pm, Friday-Sunday 10am-7pm, Closed on Wednesday.
