Resisting the fascination stimulated by documentaries that describe recent history is really difficult but, unfortunately, we do not always have the time to follow up with an in-depth analysis of the events.

On the other hand, photography has the power to convey stories and emotions, all within the brief amount of time necessary for one glance and perhaps to read a short caption.

The photos assembled here speak of events more or less famous and more or less relevant that cover issues that are very distant from each other. Take a look and tell us which one impressed you the most.
