Light as a symbol of the economic miracle – thus was electric lighting seen in the past. On display is a photographic path featuring images from the Historical Archives of Fondazione AEM, which encompass an entire historical period: from the celebratory lighting organised by AEM during the Fascist period to the lighting that spread throughout the working-class neighbourhoods after World War II, all the way down to the 1980s and 1990s, when great contemporary photographers contributed to the recording of a vast new lighting plan that would transform Milan into a veritable “city of light”.
