Modena Novecento

by Free Walking Tour Italia

Modena. Turn of the 20th century. All starts out from a black-and-white faded picture, accidentally found in a vintage book. We found it interesting, so we started to show it to the people. They reacted strange, looking at those pictures of the city. More than a century has passed since Modena entered modernity: the changes has been significant, not just in the city shape or architecture, but mostly in the habits, means, places, which the well-known Modena photographic tradition has been able to catch (Bandieri, Orlandini, Roncaglia, Panini collections). Piecing together those pictures and a book, we have designed an itinerary that sheds light on few fundamental aspects of a city between two centuries, which keeps reflecting a precise personality and renewing traditions and uses.
