McCurry’s superb photographic homage to Italy

Steve McCurry's "Afghan Girl"

Here is another historic area of ​​RomeTestaccio.
The Testaccio, is located south of the Aventino hill, another essential goal, and is very characteristic, having retained its popular spirit, almost a village within the city!

The name Testaccio derives from the Latin word testae, meaning “piece”(fragment of a broken vase head-shaped ).

The Testaccio perches on a mountain of “pieces” of broken amphorae, some 25 million amphorae, dating back to 140 AD!

Right here, at MACROMuseum of Contemporary Art Rome can not miss the exhibition of Steve McCurry, one of the greatest masters of photography of our century.

The exhibition is a journey into the human being, who, in spite of the different customs, traditions, history, has, in every continent, always the same needs, fears and emotions!
