On display will be a total of 20 photographs depicting the quintessence of Sicily, the largest and most populous island in the Mediterranean Sea and one of the 20 regions of Italy. The island is known for the Strait of Messina, which divides it from the region of Calabria in Southern Italy.

There are 4.8 million inhabitants in Sicily. The island is a tourist magnet with romantic beaches, beautiful scenery, and rich cultural heritages.

Italian photographer Fulvio Bugani captured the unique beauty of the island, allowing viewers to immerse themselves in unique stories and emotions that only Sicily can provide.

Bugani, 49, is an Italian freelance documentary photographer with more than 20 years of experience in photography.

He has worked with associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), including MSF (Medecins Sans Frontier) and Amnesty International, for which he participated in several projects on social reportage. His works have been published in some of the world's leading magazines and websites such as TIME LightBox, The Guardian, LFI - Leica Fotografie International, and Cubadebate. Bugani was the winner of the World Press Photo Award in 2015 and one of the 12 finalists of Leica Oskar Barnack Awards in 2016.

The exhibition will run until August 31.
