In Fourth Person

Part of the PHOTO 2021 International Festival of Photography ( 18th February - 7th March 2021)

"In Fourth Person" is a multimedia research about the anthropological, geopolitical and environmental transformation of the southern Italian region Calabria, over the last 50 years.

A large part of Italian political history of the last fifty years is undeniably shrouded in mystery. Until today, some of its stories and events remain untold, dismissed, and even censored. Memory – the act of practicing memory – on the other hand represents a powerful medium for people to recall lost belongings and to reclaim what has been forgotten, stolen.

Since the 1960s, in the mist of the so-called "economic miracle", Italy’s cultural and political powers established an extensive, radical process of transformation of territories and traditions.

The Calabria region, case-study of a visual exploration, is an ancient land where the challenge of modernity has imposed its language and aesthetics. ”In Fourth Person" is a multimedia research about its anthropological, geopolitical and environmental transformation over the last 50 years, whose "narration" remains fragmented.

Created along the A3 Salerno – Reggio Calabria highway, the research investigates transversely the iconography and the stories of a landscape suspended between utopy and betrayal.
