The exhibition "Ruth Orkin – Una nuova scoperta" is the largest anthological exhibition ever organized in Italy of one of the 20th century's leading photojournalists.
More than 150 photographs, most of them originals, trace the entire production of Ruth Orkin (Boston 1921 - New York 1985), particularly between 1939 and the late 1960s, through some of her capital works such as VE-Day, Jimmy Tells a Story, American Girl in Italy, one of the most iconic shots in the history of photography, and portraits of celebrities, including Robert Capa, Albert Einstein, Marlon Brando, Orson Welles, Lauren Bacall, Vittorio De Sica, Woody Allen and others.

The exhibition aims to tell the story of the work of one of the most relevant photographers of the 20th century, through a path that will allow the public to discover her elegant, refined, profound and engaging work.
In spite of the prejudices of a societỳ that did not allow her to fulfill herself as a filmmaker, Ruth Orkin approached photography with an entirely new perspective, experimenting with an innovative photographic language capable of going beyond the still image to tell the stories behind the simplest and most everyday gestures, where cinema and photography converge, merging into each other.
