The Piaggio Foundation organized and hosts at Museo Piaggio in Pontedera (Italy), until 8th April 2022, a photographic exhibition by Fabrizio Sbrana dedicated to the theme of climate change. The exhibition is composed by 30 large photographic panels complemented by a video that shows hundreds of more pictures. It represent the reinterpretation of Sbrana’s reportage photographs shot during many travels around the world, from the 1980s to the present day.
From Zambia to Italy, from Brazil to Spain, from Ethiopia to Iceland passing through Tunisia and Namibia, the images testify, over the years and through changing landscapes and latitudes, the scream of the Earth and its wounds, between light and dark, lights and shadows, despair and hope.
In addition to be on display at the Museo Piaggio, the exhibition is available also in a virtual tour, accessible online, which offers a very nice interactive experience. Moving around the virtual space, the digital visitor can select the hot-spot that give access to the photos, interesting captions and videos.

The exhibition is an opportunity to contribute to reflections around a theme of the climate change that is dramatically in focus nowadays, so to participate in the collective awareness-raising process that must accompany the concrete actions of governments, institutions and businesses.
In addition to the photographs, the exhibition leverages the storytelling by astrophysicist Luca Perri, who has long been involved in scientific dissemination on radio, television, print media, festivals, social networks and through experiments of citizen science. The videos are accessible online, in the virtual tour, as well.
As the President of the Piaggio Foundation Riccardo Costagliola wrote in the introductory text to the exhibition: “If it is true that the salvation of our planet depends on the ability by governments to guiding the processes of energy and industry transition, it is also true that each of us can make an important contribution to achieve this goal and can do it in our daily life”.
