A photographic account of Italy during its first Covid-19 lockdown

Overview

Twelve of the most renowned Italian landscape photographers have donated some of their shots to the Italia InAttesa (“Italy InWait”) exhibition, undoubtedly out of the conviction that photography, by virtue of its commitment to listening and its “confidence” with places, can make a decisive contribution to enhancing cultural heritage at such an unprecedented time. Born out of a project launched by the Directorate General for Contemporary Creativity in collaboration with Italy’s Central Institute for the Union Catalogue of Italian Libraries, the exhibition aims to represent the emptiness and suspension in urban and extra-urban landscapes, sites and places of Italian culture during the difficult period experienced as the SARS‑CoV‑2 virus spread from winter 2020 onwards. 

The project focuses in on urban spaces, squares, monuments, infrastructure, museums and other cultural sites, as well as parks and landscapes. The photographs collected on 20 May 2020, to be displayed in Rome and Naples, will be exhibited in Reggio Emilia from 15th October 2022 to 8th January 2023.

The selected photographers span several generations and different styles and techniques, portraying both tradition and experimentation, with the aim of creating a collective, polyphonic account of modern Italian photographic culture, providing a real cross-section of the prominent Italian visual storytellers of the landscape.
