When you think of Colombia and Italy, can you think of any similarities? Well if you can't think of any you're right to assume there are a good number of Colombitalians running around in Philadelphia. One in particular is photographer Tony Rocco. Rocco is of Colombian/Italian descent and grew up in South Philadelphia which is a predominantly Italian neighborhood.
Join Rocco in his NYC show, Dos Culturas, on September 3, 2010 at el Consulado General de Colombia. Rocco will focus on themes of identity and multiculturalism in this exhibition of new work from Colombia and Italy.
