From 23 June to 30 July, 2016 Palazzo Leonetti Luparini (Via del Municipio) will host the photographic exhibition SCHWETZINGEN by Horst Hamann.
The exhibition is organized jointly by the cities of Spoleto and Schwetzingen (Germany) in the frame of their sistership.
The partnership between Schwetzingen and Spoleto started in 2005, and the focus of this year’s celebration is Schwetzingen’s first-ever written documentation, i.e. the Lorsch Codex, dating to 766 AD. The exhibition Schwetzingen by Horst Hamann is but one of the initiatives included, and features photos of the city, its castle and its park, that catch the German city’s most magical and charming nuances.
Worldwide-famous photographer Horst Hamann’s New York Verticals, an actual milestone in the history of photography, won him a personal exhibition at the New York City Museum, the first time ever for a German photographer.
Opening: 23 June 2016, h 18.00
Opening times: 10.30 – 12.30 / 16.00–19.00
