From the birth of modern sport to the threshold of the new millennium
Sport is a theme that offers the possibility to become acquainted with the history of our city in its most daily aspects. In fact, through its disciplines as practised on an amateur or professional basis, sport has made its deep-seated entrance into society as a common good that is extended to persons belonging to all classes and of all ages. Photography constitutes one of the most important means through which a knowledge and divulgation of sport have been made possible. It gives us back the emotions of great undertakings and illustrious personages in the same way as it testifies to us the values of social relations and sociability that are at the basis of sport itself.
