Over 100 pictures that give life to a polyphonic and choral photographic story: 12 Italian and foreign artists of different generations and attitudes, chosen by a scientific committee chaired by Margherita Guccione (Director of MAXXI Architecture), tell the void and suspension in our ordinary life in the months of March-May 2020, on a physical, intimate and mental journey at the same time.
Ranging between different languages, techniques and methods of expression, between tradition and experimentation, their gaze rests on urban and natural landscapes immersed in an almost unreal silence, on Italian cultural sites and places, squares, horizons and public spaces, works of art and everyday objects.
The exhibition itinerary winds through the architecture of Palazzo Barberini: the works confront themselves with its magnificent environments, interacting with new spaces, rarely or never open to the public, such as the Sala Paesaggi, the Sala delle Colonne, the Serra and the vast area of the Cucine Novecentesche, for the first time accessible to visitors.
The images and photographs will enter the collections of the Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo e la Documentazione - Central Institute for Catalog and Documentation as part of a fund dedicated to Italy during the pandemic.
