Silvia Camporesi - Mirabilia
|F. Arminio; M. V. Baravelli; C. Pomarici
With the series 'Mirabilia' Silvia Camporesi makes a journey in search of special places, wonders of nature, unusual museums. Her interest in everything that can be defined as irregular and non-canonical leads her to embark on a unique journey, both because of the beauty of these places - mostly most of them off the classic tourist routes, tending not to be easy to reach, little frequented - and for the particular suggestions they offer. While treasures like San Galgano or Villa Adriana in Tivoli may be familiar to us, very few will have heard of the Agostinelli Museum in Dragona, the Damanhur underground temple or the Villa Rossi Park in Santorso. Guided by the author's gaze, we travel through an Italy that seems out of time, a country of "estranging beauty," where each photograph generates wonder and functions as an opening onto an inner landscape, bringing with it a sense of disorientation and disquiet.
