INTERNALIZATION PROJECT: ICONS, A STEVE MCCURRY EXHIBITION
La Meccanica works daily with 60 countries around the world. We face every day different cultures in a continuous challenge on ever wider fronts.
The international expansion is continuous, as it is continuous confrontation, exchange of information and opinions between totally different cultures and ways of business.
It is following our internationalization policy that La Meccanica has decided to sponsor the McCurry "Icon" exhibition, a collection of 1000 pictures from different countries of normal people, workers, and rituals.
This sponsorship is a perfect symbol of our effort to understand and interact with different countries and markets

The exhibition collects the photographer's multiple artistic and reportage experiences: starting from his first historic trips to India and then to Afghanistan where Steve McCurry had the opportunity to follow the Mujahideen at the time of the war against Russia. Sharbat Gula, the girl made famous by the front page of National Geographic, comes from Afghanistan.
