Perhaps best known for its contributions to cinema, as seen in works such as Bicycle Thieves (1948) and Rome, Open City (1945), Italian neorealism (neorealismo is the Italian), as the name suggests, focused on the everyday lives of the working class after the Second World War.

The show at the National Gallery, put on in collaboration with the Galerija Fotografija,, will present almost three hundred prints along with the original contexts in which the images were seen, magazines, photo-books and the like. It also places the photography of this era in a broader setting, showing its links with neorealist literature and cinema.
