Stories from the South of Italy

via Frova 10 , Cinisello Balsamo Milan, Italy

edited by Arianna Bianchi and Roberta Valtorta opening: Saturday, April 12 at 18 On the occasion of 10 years of activity, the Museum of Contemporary Photography offers a major exhibition dedicated to the South of Italy with works from its collections through images of important and well-known authors who have made the history of Italian photography. The exhibition includes 120 photographs of Calabria, Campania, Puglia, Basilicata, Sicily and Sardinia organized into 16 thematic units. These authors represented: Letizia Battaglia, Anthony Biasiucci, Carmelo Bongiorno, Mario Cattaneo, Mario Cresci, Luciano D'Alessandro, Mimmo Jodice, Uliano Lucas, Lello Mazzacane, Carmelo Nicosia, Frederick Patellani, Tino Petrelli, Francis Radino, Marialba Russian, Ferdinand Scianna. The images are taken from the photographic archives Mario Cattaneo, Grace Blacks (pertaining to the Museum), Lanfranco Colombo and Federico Patellani (deposit of Lombardy Region). The images cover a historical period of fifty, after World War II to the early nineties, and touch on issues related to identity profoundly the economic and cultural development of southern areas: rural life described in the relationship with the land and with animals, tradition religious rituals of the ancient cult of the dead, Carnival, social exclusion and urban decay, the work in the mine, the problem of unemployment and struggles to combat it, the figures of the children, the true icons of the South, the learned objects of popular culture, the theme of the Mafia, painful and offensive to these people, the scenery of the sea and the countryside, references to the land of extraordinary beauty and long unfortunate. This is a show intense and full of ideas not only informative but also in terms of the emotional, composed of images of strong social impact and high aesthetic value, which returns a problematic cross-section of the social and ethno-anthropological part of a important in Italy. Accompanying the photographs a series of video interviews with immigrants from the south, and between memories, thoughts, knowledge, tell their roots, their dreams, their current existence in a territory other than the one they left behind.
