The Affresco room of the San Micheletto complex hosts the photographic exhibition L'occhio del tempo by the photographer Dantès, dedicated to the most evocative and unknown corners of Lucca and its surroundings.

Tempus edax rerum-Time eats everything (Ovid 2 AD) are the three Latin words that describe the essence of the exhibition and what the artist transmits with his photographic vision.
54 eternal shots by Dantès of what remains of places full of history, tradition and culture, managing to capture the artistic and poetic trait of acceptance of transience and imperfection that still sees them full of meaning and majesty, even if inexorably eroded by the passage of time.
