(by Marzia Apice) Rome, March 14 - From Fulvio Roiter's vision in Venice to Cola dell'Amatrice's Renaissance art in Ascoli Piceno, Federico Seneca's posters in Treviso and Antonio Ratti's fabrics in Rome, the exhibitions over the weekend starting on March 16 will be uniting the contemporary world with a fascination for classical art. VENICE - About 200 photos, mostly vintage ones, will be showcasing the talent of one of the most important photographers of our time. On March 16, a large retrospective will open at the Casa dei Tre Oci on Fulvio Roiter, the first since his death in 2016. It will run through August 26. The exhibition is divided into nine sections that cover the photographer's entire life, from the age of neorealism to the representations of his native city Venice and the tales of his trips to New Orleans, Belgium, Portugal, Andalusia and Brazil. TREVISO - From his Belle époque debut to his futuristic developments and the theatricality of the Bauhaus matrix, the Museo Nazionale Salce will pay homage to the "father of Baci Perugina".
