I will be giving a lecture together with Simone Donat about our collaborative project “Politico”, produced for L’Espresso and aimed at documenting the ongoing upheaval in Italian politics. We started the project by covering the campaigns of all the candidates in the inconclusive political elections of 2013; while I photographed the campaigns between Rome and Southern Italy in 35mm black & white, Donati covered the centre-North of Italy in colour square format. The result is choral documentation of the unscripted scenes and events related to Italy’s ruling class.
The lecture is hosted by Cosa ti muove, a series of lectures curated by Margherita Cascio and Ilenia Ricci, within the Word Festival of the Long Lake Festival in Lugano, Switzerland.
