From January 19 to February 18 Florence will be hosting the photo exhibition "The Mirror of Memory" dedicated to the outstanding Russian film director Andrei Tarkovsky. The exhibition to be held in the premise of Tarkovsky archive dwells on the roots of creation of Tarkovsky's autobiographical film Zerkalo / The Mirror (1975), many images of which had been inspired by his family photos made in the first half of the last century.

Tarkovsky made one of my favorite films, Nostalghia. The town of Bagno Vignoni, which sits on a hill above the Val d'Orcia just south of San Quirico (map), was a principle location of the film.
