Ten years after his death, Milan is devoting a major exhibition to Gabriele Basilico (1944-2013), divided between two exhibition venues: Palazzo Reale and Triennale Milano. This is the first great tribute that the city in which Basilico was born and lived has paid to the photographer and his cosmopolitan gaze, capable of capturing the essence of all cities. The exhibition will present some 500 works, starting from his survey of Milan at the Triennale and then looking and arriving at the World at Palazzo Reale.

The exhibition “Gabriele Basilico. Le mie città”, which opens to the public on 13 October 2023, is promoted and produced by the Comune di Milano-Cultura, Palazzo Reale and Triennale Milano, together with Electa, and created with the scientific collaboration of the Archivio Gabriele Basilico.

At Palazzo Reale the exhibition is curated by Giovanna Calvenzi and Filippo Maggia and presents a selection of works on Basilico's major international commissions; at the Triennale, where the curatorship is entrusted to Giovanna Calvenzi and Matteo Balduzzi, a broad selection of images of Milan and its outer suburbs is exhibited.
