The “Fondo fotografico Carletti”, is a private collection currently consisting of over 30,000 pieces, including photographic prints, negatives on film, glass plates of various sizes, stereoscopic photographs on cardboard and glass.

The intent with which Alessandro Carletti created the collection in 1960, and that drives him in increase it, is to collect images that can tell the social, economic, political, urban transformations that took place in Italy and in Europe in the twentieth century. The collection has a special interest for the records of daily life (remarkable, in this context, the photos with which the tenor Francesco Tamagno portrayed life and travels of his family, and the large number of glass plates depicting the Roman family Courier in the period between 1905 and 1938).
