With the opening of an exhibition by architectural photographer Camilla Borghese on 7 July in the Bulgarian capital, the Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute in Sofia mark Italian Design Day. The exhibition is entitled Form and Light: The Sign of Architectural Continuity.

“If in Rome the path of the new is not easy, despite the bold examples of modern architecture, what is quite possible is a new way to look at it - namely this is what Camilla Borghese offers us, and I am extremely glad that I can present it to you here, in one of the most ancient capitals in Europe,” said during the opening H.E. Ambassador Giuseppina Zarra.

Borghese's work offers a chance to reflect on the continuity of classical architectural shapes, traced back centuries. Altered, updated and constantly revived thanks to great artists able to take in and reshape the legacy of their predecessors, reimagine it through their own creative vision. The great architectural examples have served as sources of inspiration over the centuries and become culturally intertwined with fashion and furnishing, industrial and urban design in an ongoing dialogue that breathes new ideas.

The large-scale photos can be viewed from 8 July until 21 August on the pedestrian Paris Street in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia. They are arranged on the outside of the garden walls of the Italian ambassador's residence and the cultural institute.
