In 2007 ANUA realized another exhibition in Milan: “Equilibrium”. Opened in October 5th, it was supposed to end in December 28th, but it had such a great success that it was extended to February 17th.

“Equilibrium is the connection between the physical forces which had generated the universe; it is the connection between resources and organisms that enable life; it is the connection between men from different societies and the connection between mind and body.” (Marie Laurence Chicouri, curator of the exhibition)

So, “Equilibrium” alludes to Beauty which can rouse emotions: this was the exhibition’s aim with its 100 pictures (supplied with as many texts) taken by 54 photographers from National Geographic. Located in via Dante and Piazza Cordusio, the big-sized photographs portrayed animals, landscapes, men and the armony between them. Among the photoghaphers who partecipated to the event there was Mitsuaki Iwago,┬áChris Johns, Frans Lanting, Michael Lewis and Steve McCurry.

The exhibition was patronized by UNESCO, the City of Milan, WhiteStar and the Department of Natural Resources; it was sponsored by National Geographic, Media Partner and Impatto Zero.


La terra vista dal cielo

May 30, 2010

After the success realized in 34 countries all over the world, the exhibition “La terra vista dal cielo” arrived in Milan in 2004. Here it was set up by ANUA (in collaboration with Atrium) and lasted from September 10th to November 14th.

The exhibition consisted of 120 big-sized pictures – by the french photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand – supplied with texts and located in via Dante, Piazza Cordusio and via dei Mercanti. There was also a big map of the world so that people could identify the places where the photos had been taken. Beside the principal exhibition, it was installed another one for blind people who could touch Bertrand’s images in relief and read texts in braille. Furthermore, in Piazza Cordusio there was an info point, a cinema area and a bookshop.

The exhibition’s aim was to informe and sensitize people about environmental, social and economic problems. The images seized breathtaking landscapes, people and different cultures from an unusual and extraordinary prospective: the sky.

“La terra vista dal cielo” was under the patronage of the City of Milan and sponsored by Canon, Peugeout and IGP Decaux.
