Description: The exhibition, dedicated to the “Underwater” world, showcases some of the most beautiful images by Filippo Borghi, who has been considered for years one of the greatest international photographers of this wonderful photographic genre.
It is a tribute to the sea, extraordinarily rich in life and contradictions, capable of revealing magnificent surprises to the observer.
The images on display enhance nature and represent a journey through the wonders of the seas, which unfortunately are often put at risk by human influence.
The photos on display are the result of Borghi’s constant commitment to realize a project capable of creating awareness and giving audiences accurate information about the underwater world.
It is not possible to imagine the wonders hidden by the sea, unless a good photographer captures its beauty.
