The “Archivio Letizia Battaglia” association was founded in 2021 by Letizia Battaglia and her grandchildren Matteo and Marta Sollima. The Association’s aim is to safeguard and promote Letizia Battaglia’s works created during her 50 year career as a photo reporter and artist, and to keep her memory alive.
The Association promotes exhibitions of Letizia Battaglia’s work in Italy and abroad. They contribute to cinematographic and editorial projects based on her work, and organise and take part in events with social, informative and educational aims.
In 2023 the Association held solo and collective exhibitions in various exhibition spaces in Italy and abroad including the Palazzo Ducale in Genova, the Terme di Caracalla in Rome, the Fondazione Merz in Turin, and the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Paris and in Brussels.
After her passing, and following her wishes, the association holds the rights to the economic use of the photographs taken by her. The Archive is the only organisation able to grant authentication of her works, and to approve any reproduction or exhibition of Letizia Battaglia’s photographs.
The association “Archivio Letizia Battaglia” is currently working on organising her artistic catalogue which will soon be available for students and researchers to consult by appointment only.
