From 19 October to 17 November 2017
Città is the stereotyped city, the unnamed city: all cities can be the same city. Cities are one and one city can be all others.
Cities grow, change and evolve. They tell us about their culture, their history, their inhabitants, their atmosphere, their smells, their light, their shadows and why not? Of us. As David Le Breton says: “The city is not outside of man, but in him, permeating his gaze, his ear and all other senses.”
The title of Città is a tribute to Italian neorealism. The set of images take the street as the main stage. Times and spaces are fragmented, visualized by the fragile line between fiction and documentary. The photographs do not appear isolated, but form a coherent narrative set. Città becomes a cartographic journey of space and time, in search of oneself.
The essence of Città is the inner journey that is projected in each one of us. As we contemplate the photographs we feel and reinvent our new cities, new experiences, new emotions, new feelings, the private becomes public again and vice versa. The visual testimony of Città describes the different interpretations, whether social, cultural or individual, of the observed reality. In these captures of fleeting moments, there are musics, rhythms, streets, the smells of the night, silence. Remembering the Talmud: “We do not see things as they are, but as we are ourselves.”
