Sant'Anna di Camaiore - The Silence

Palazzo Ducale 1, Lucca, Italy

It will be inaugurated on Thursday, July 31 at 19 at the Palazzo Ducale (Lucca), the exhibition "Sant'Anna di Camaiore - The Silence", the painter Versilia Serafino Beconi. 2014 is an important year for the memory of Sant'Anna di Camaiore. 70 years after the massacre, 20 years after the opening of the cabinet of shame, 10 years after the beginning of the process. The province of Lucca and the Fondazione Banca del Monte di Lucca, in collaboration with the municipality of Camaiore, they chose to remember the tragic event with an exhibition: not to forget, to build a future of peace. It is a non-traditional exhibition that interprets the three days that changed the history of St. Ann and the entire territory of Versilia. On 11 August, the day before, life in the quiet of the Apuan mountains, seemingly protected from the atrocities of war. On August 12, the arrival of the soldiers, the despair of the mothers, the cries of the children, massacre, an incomprehensible retaliation performed with indescribable cruelty. In a few hours they were massacred 560 civilians, mostly children, women and the elderly. On August 13, the silence. A Sant'Anna everything is silent: only death and despair speak in a silence that has continued for decades. There are signs of hope in utter desolation: the few surviving children; hope that 50 years later is revealed in the documents found in the wardrobe of Shame and, finally, the beginning of the process. A hope and a memory that becomes a project in the constitution in Sant'Anna of a Peace Park. The path is shown a selection of works from the cycle dedicated to the massacre by Serafino Beconi, the artist who died in 1997, between 1959 and 1964 he devoted himself almost entirely to the memory of Sant'Anna di Camaiore, "incapable or unable - as had this to say himself - to engage in any other action ", which seemed vain and futile confrontation of this tragedy. The exhibition, conceived and staged by Alessandra Guidi, has a catalog published by Pacini Fazzi Editore with the contributions of Carlo Carli, Emmanuel Weights and Beconi Corinna, the daughter of the painter. The exhibition will be open, free admission, 1 August to 1 September, from 17 to 23, and from Tuesday 2 to Sunday 21 September, from 15 to 19. The tour will start every 30 minutes. Closed on Mondays.
