La Figura Nera Aspetta Il Bianco (The Black Figure is Waiting for the White) at Museo di Roma is the first retrospective exhibition in Rome on the work of Italian photographer Mario Giacomelli.

Mario Giacomelli (1925-2000) was born in Senigallia, in the Marche region, halfway Italy’s Adriatic coast. During his whole career, Giacomelli has enthusiastically photographed the extraordinary landscape of the Marche in his typical black-and-white style, with the grainy images reflecting the soil of the country.

Besides photos of the Marche’s landscape, the exhibition also includes images from many other famous series: Giacomelli’s first photographs, taken on the beach of Senigallia in 1953; young priests in a festive mood at the local seminar; Lourdes; and many others.
