Leopoldo Alinari learned the art of photography and opened a small studio in 1852, two years later his two brothers and himself opened a photography business with the mission to photographically reproduce all of the major Italian works of art. Later on in the 1920's a publishing house (Istituto di Edizioni Artistiche) absorbed the studio, and continues to publish works on occasion.
