100-Year-Old Photos Capture Authentic Daily Life in Italy.

These evocative snapshots of Italy were taken by American photographers and come from the Library of Congress archives between 1860 and 1920.

The images (mainly stereographs and photochroms), were taken in various locations and regions of Italy and portray moments of daily life, the royal family, soldiers and sailors, the front lines of the First World War, refugees and orphans of the war, the missions of the American Red Cross in the country, etc.

The photographs are a sort of time machine that allows us to take a look at a distant fragment of time. The hectic details of the photographs create an atmosphere that shows a bustling daily life that transcends the film.
