Alinari and Google tell Italy in a mobile App

The Great War

The Great War

A new App, born from the collaboration between Alinari (firm working since 1852 in the field of photography and image communication) and the Google Cultural Institute (digital platform devoted to safeguarding and promoting culture online) enables people to explore Alinari’s archives also on mobile devices. The App, which is downloadable for free from the Play Store, gives access to two new digital exhibitions: “Italy in food” and “The Great War”.
“Italy in food” is a tribute to Expo Milan. Over 80 images, black & white and colour, from the mid ‘800 up to the end of the XX century, tell the changes of our daily living through the theme of food. From pasta production, to street markets, to the first form of large-scale retail trade; from the coloured and warm images of the Mediterranean taste to the leisure and conviviality time of food.
“The Great War” is instead a fascinating exposition dedicated to the first World War, with over 80 images from the frontline, the mountains and the cities, portraying soldiers and civilians during the war predicament.
Both exhibitions are accessible through the new free mobile App, made available by the Google Cultural Institute and populated by Alinari with unpublished images and contents, now accessible also in mobility.
