LUIGI PRIMOLI: L'ISTANTE RITROVATO



A selection of photos by Luigi Primoli. Born in Paris in 1858, son of Carlotta Bonaparte, a great-granddaughter of Napoleon, Count Luigi Primoli grew and studied in Paris. In 1870, he and his family moved to Rome. At the end of the 80’s he developed an interest in photography. He journeyed throughout Europe and, between 1904 and 1906, travelled to India. The first large exhibition of works by Luigi Primoli was hosted recently at the Museo Nazionale d’Arte Orientale, in Rome. The exhibition, organized, thanks to the cooperation of the Museo Nazionale d’Arte Orientale and the Museo Napoleonico in Rome, will open under the auspices of the Consul General of Italy in Toronto.
