On the occasion of the celebrations for the 140th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Italy and the Republic of Korea, the Italian Embassy in Seoul realized a photographic exhibition titled 'All Roads Lead to History, Italy and Korea', in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute, the National Museum of Korean Contemporary History, the Yonhap News Agency and the Italian National Press Agency ANSA.

The opening ceremony, which will take place on Monday 26 February, 2024, will be attended by high-level Italian and Korean representatives, in particular the Korean Minister of Culture, Yu In Chon, and the Ambassador of Italy to the Republic of Korea, Emilia Gatto, as well as numerous personalities from the cultural, scientific, and industrial sectors. The initiative will officially launch a year-long programme of events aimed at enhancing the two countries' historical fields of cooperation, as well as finding new opportunities for dialogue in other areas.

The exhibition, which may be visited at the National Museum of Korean Contemporary History, allows the visitors to admire documents and photographic and video material tracing the salient stages of the 140 years of the two countries' shared history, both the most painful ones, such as the Korean War, during which Italian Red Cross volunteers provided support with the field hospital No. 68, and the more joyful ones, in which the relations were strengthened, such as the recent State Visit of the President of the Republic of Italy, Sergio Mattarella, to Korea.

The words of the Italian Ambassador to the Republic of Korea, Emilia Gatto. "Photographic exhibitions, by definition, are a glance at the past, but in this case the value of the documents and photographs collected is such as to constitute a solid and articulate basis, which allows us to look to the future of our bilateral relations. Our wish is that this photographic journey will highlight the similarities of two countries that are only geographically distant, but close in sharing values and objectives."

The exhibition has been supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Republic of Korea and sponsored by Bulgari.
