Set up UGO design





On October 22nd, 2016 hundreds of photographers took to the streets on the length and breadth of the Mediterranean simultaneously documenting 12 themes in 12 hours in order to commonly immortalize a day in the life of seven cities: beyond Palermo, whose leg was organized by the ENZIMA association, also Beirut, Naples, Algiers, Marseille, Amman and Ljubljana. Professional and amateur photographers took part in documenting the places and communities in which they live in, contributing to the construction of a collective archive, which has become a resource of meeting and confrontation thanks to the creativity of the photographic language.

The ENZIMA association, in occasion of the Sole Luna Doc Film Festival, presents a selection of images which may provide food for thought to whoever is eager to slightly decentre his\her vantage point, starting with pictures originated from different social realities of the Mediterranean to reflect about the anthropologically-relevant meaning of “representation” of everyday life.

From Milan to Palermo: Gianluca Costantini’s drawings







Gianluca Costantini, activist and illustrator, guest at the Human Rights Festival,  through his drawings narrated the encounters, people and films at the festival held in Milan from May 2nd to 7th,  2017. For the second consecutive year, the association Sole Luna – Un ponte tra le culture has been a partner of the Human Rights Festival in Milan with the selection of 19 documentaries in the DOC section and 3 films for the EDU section. The sketches of the 19 documentaries presented are set up in the aisle of the Church of Spasimo.

Gianluca Costantini (Ravenna, 1971) has exhibited in a number of museums and galleries abroad: the Lazarides Gallery, London (2009), the Salon du dessin contemporain, Carrousel du Louvre, Paris (2010), the Dox Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague, the Museum of Graphic Humor Diogenes Taborda, Buenos Aires (2014). In Italy, his drawings were exhibited alongside Alighiero Boetti’s works at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lissone (2013), or made up large installations and themed projects, such as the D406 gallery in Modena and the Centro Arti Opificio Siri in Terni. As a graphic journalist, he gave a lecture at the Ars Electronic Center in Linz (2009) and took part in the Festival Human Rights in Lugano (2015).
With him, drawing can become a performative act, in a magical dialogue with different stories ad languages: it happened with Hanif Kureshi at the Teatro Alighieri in Ravenna (2011), and with Emidio Clementi, the singer and bass player with Massimo Volume in Modena.
