(VELINO) Roma, 23 May - A photo exhibition by Italian Paolo Barone, entitled "Sicily, Land of Myth", is underway until June 18 at the Mario Sironi Gallery in Lima. Organised by the Italian Institute of Culture (IIC) in the Peruvian capital, the event consists of a selection of 30 photographs taking viewers on a sober and essential visual journey through some extraordinary aspects of Sicily. The photos depict the environment and the nature of the island, with some evidence of the ancient history of this land that, in the heart of the Mediterranean, has always been a meeting place of peoples and civilisations. The photos also capture the charm of religious, peasant, rural and gastronomic traditions. Paolo Barone is a native of the Catania area (Sicily). After leaving his studies in medicine, he discovered the magic of the photo over 30 years ago. Since then he has poured all his research, passion and expressive drive into photography. His work has made numerous appearances in national and international magazines, a large group of photo books (on Sicily, Emilia Romagna, and Brazil) and informational brochures for territorial promotion. vel
