 Inner me by Antonio Spanò

Presentation of the project and screening. Thursday 15th September h 8.30 p.m, TRA | Ca’ dei Ricchi

Entirely self-financed through a campaign on kickstarter, the Inner Me project was born following the meeting of the director Antonio Spanò with the deaf community of Butembo during his previous work Silent Chaos. The stories of Immaculée, Sylvie and Stuka are stories of every day life, of daily toil and struggle against injustice and oppression. But in their condition of being the very last among the others, these women tell, also and above all, the stubborn desire to recapture the uncertain threads of their fate every morning.

 Ri-Scatti. Fotografi senza fissa dimora – In coooperation with TRA Treviso Ricerca Arte

Photographic exhibition curated by Chiara Oggioni Tiepolo, 8- 18 September, TRA | Ca’ dei Ricchi

Fifteen homeless people attended a course taught by two professional photographers for two months, Gianmarco Maraviglia and Aldo Soligno, coordinated by Federica Balestrieri and by the association Terza Settimana. They have learned the technique, but not the subjects. They were asked to tell of life, as they see it. The result is an exhibition, an extraordinary kaleidoscope of images where poverty never takes over. You can feel its lumbering presence; but the narrative voice speaks of hope, of beauty, of a domineering instinct towards the future: of redemption, indeed.

Visioni Mediterranee by Rosetta Messori

Photographic exhibition. 11-18 September, Palazzo dei Trecento

Rosetta Messori is a singular photographer, whose images testify to a strong narrative tension and, at the same time, an overwhelming pictorial vocation. Her images are the result of long exposure and a particular movement of the camera while shooting, in order to “dematerialize” the real with the aim of creating new forms generated from the contact with light. Messori’s photographs have the poetry of a narrative and the formal elegance of a painting. The attraction exerted on the artist by ancient civilizations and cultures such as the Egyptian, Assyrian or Babylonian one, by primordial places of the deserts in which the nature explodes in a jubilation of shapes and gleams, creates in her mind the need to “find a balance between light and colour, shape and speed, where the time turns on itself and everything seems to penetrate.”
