Tuscan Scenery on Alitalia Aircraft

For an entire year, an Airbus 330 in Alitalia’s fleet will be the site of an exhibit of 28 images by Tuscan photographer Alessandro Moggi.

The photos, featuring the many aspects of Tuscany, will be positioned above the overhead compartments of the aircraft, which serves some of Alitalia’s intercontinental routes to the United States, China, Brazil and Japan.

In the display, Moggi’s works-Tuscan landscapes, from the seaside to the mountains and the countryside, and Tuscan art-create a dialogue about similarities and differences: the precise geometry of Versilia and bright colours of the Lucca countryside; the wild nature of the woods; many of the region’s gardens and vineyards; and the representation of Salome by Filippo Lippi in the Prato Cathedral and the contemporary Gori Collection of Villa Celle in Pistoia. Along with subject matter appropriate for the venue, Moggi’s photographs were adaptable to the specific requirement of horizontal format.

The on-board exhibit ‘emphasizes the international vocation of Tuscany,’ said Tuscan president Enrico Rossi, ‘and enriches the journey of those who will fly on the new Alitalia planes, inviting them to come and enjoy our rich culture and landscapes.’
