Archivi Fotografici Alinari information
The world’s oldest photographic firm has, since its founding in 1852, amassed an archive of some 3.5 million photographs, ranging from daguerreotypes to digital images. The firm began by specialising in art and architecture, but has expanded to documentary-style photographs. The archives are open to the public, and you can still order prints of the original photographs just like Lucy Honeychurch in A Room with a View . The archives also form the nucleus of the collection at the nearby Museo Nazionale Alinari della Fotografia.
