Lampedusa o dell'esteso deserto

Fotografie di Massimiliano Gatti

22 January  - 8 March 2015

Raccolta Lercaro



On the occasion of Art City Bologna 2015, Fondazione Cardinale Giacomo Lercaro-Raccolta Lercaro houses the exhibition Lampedusa o dell’esteso deserto. Fotografie di Massimiliano Gatti.

Gatti with this work speaks of death and resurrection, bringing us back to the landing of immigrants in Lampedusa. However his photos do not depict "people", but rather their personal belongings which, lost during the landing, the sea has collected and returned. A teapot, a tea glass , a piece of cloth ...Small objects that raise questions about the people who could not take them back with them. Where are they? Which landfall will have they achieved? Will they survive?
