Giro d'Italia Exhibition in NYC

To celebrate the 100 anniversary of the Giro d'Italia, the Italian Cultural Institute of New York, 100th Anniversary Giro d'Italia Committee, and BuonItalia in collaboration with the Eden Fine Art Gallery in Manhattan have organized an exhibition where 106 historical photos from the archives of the Corriere della Sera will be on view.

On display will also be special "Centenary" bikes, and paintings and sculptures by international, contemporary artists inspired by the theme of the bicycle as a tribute to the historical race. The works on view are by Yoel Benharrouche, Dganit Blechner, Michele Ciacciofera, Nathan Elkanovich, David Kracov and Dorit Levinston.

The opening reception is tonight from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Eden Fine Art Gallery

  1. This exhibition sounded like it would have been great. However, I called the gallery to enquire about how long the exhibition would continue for and was surprised to hear that it was FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY.

    If you were hoping to view it, alas, that is not possible.

    Hopefully the exhibition will be brought back for a reasonable period at some other venue in the future.
