Italy in Retrospect: Photos from the 1950s and 1960s

Many things have happened in the world just within the past century that it's pretty rare to find candid depictions of life, scenery, beauty, and the mundane.

Everything is so fast-paced and everyone is trying to get on the latest trend. But there is something about looking through photos of the past that winds things down.

In Paolo Di Paolo's latest exhibit, he makes you feel exactly that. You are taken into a different era where people had different sentiments in the context of a different zeitgeist.

One of his photos features Piazza Navona, which is quite a popular tourist spot now but back then, it must have been a wonderful place to just sit and relax, and observe the world around you.
