She tells real stories unfolding in hot locations, but Vittoria Mentasti is neither a journalist nor a reporter; she acts more as a wandering minstrel. Her stories illustrate facts and data through the lens of a visionary.
Delfino Sisto Legnani brings his experience as an editorial and commercial photographer into his personal research. This is primarily visible in the style of his images, in which the most typical traits of the professional practice – i.e. lighting and staging – constitute an inevitable reference scheme.
Time is the fundamental subject of Domingo Milella’s work. In his often large-scale photographs, traces of the past take the form of a universal writing, which melts with the language of photography to narrate the history of humankind through its relationship with space.

Federico Clavarino works with symbols. His photographs, often close-ups, represent one subject at a time, a detail, and place it firmly in front of the viewer, leaving no chance to distraction. They are the playing cards of an unknown game, forming a syncopated and hyperbolic narration. The Castle is a series dedicated to Europe. Starting from…
Lele Saveri’s work combines underground culture, fanzines, mysterious atmospheres, classic beauty and vernacular photography. An entangled and immediate melting pot. Barricades, his series on view at 2016 – On new Italian Photography, was made as the 2014 student protests in Hong Kong, against the electoral reform and in support of democracy, unfolded. Fifty years later, we witness…

The human figure is the favourite and recurrent subject of Francesco Nazardo’s work. Details of the body, in particular. Fragmented and torn to pieces, so that the eye of the viewer is oriented and inevitably voyeuristic. Placed within familiar and fairy atmospheres, his characters perform enigmatic gestures, rather than codified and shared actions. They methodically lead…
Teresa Giannico’s research instills doubt on the documentary value of photography trough a process of reconstruction of reality.

Allegra Martin’s work takes inspiration from the photographic tradition of landscape, territory and architecture, and renovates it: her photographs introduce a narrative. They do not tell stories and there is no linearity, however the objects she places within the frame seem to be connected by a plot. Atmospheres are suspended. The temperature, cold. Noir scenarios are…
