Gabriele Basilico's photographs are on display at the Regional Archaeological Museum in Aosta from April 28 to September 23, 2018.

Aosta Regional Archaeological Museum pays tribute to photographer Gabriele Basilico, who died in 2013, with an exhibition that will be open to the public from April 28 to Sept. 23, 2018.
“Gabriele Basilico. The City and the Territory,” this is the title of the exhibition, is curated by Angela Madesani, with the collaboration ofGiovanna Calvenzi, theGabriele Basilico Archive, theAcademy of Architecture of Mendrisio/USI, and with the general coordination of Raffaella Resch.

The exhibition will display 200 of Basilico’s photographs in an exhibition itinerary divided by research nuclei, starting with the “Milan Portraits of Factories” (1978-1980), his most famous works, which marked the beginning of his investigations of the world’s cities.
Also on display are never-before-seen color images of reconstructed Beirut (2011), some of the world’s metropolises(Shanghai, Rio, Istanbul, Moscow) and the transformations of the contemporary landscape with two series of images dedicated to the mountains, the Aosta Valley and the St. Gotthard Pass in Switzerland.

Among the 200 photos on display, 96 are part of the “Sections of the Italian Landscape,” created in collaboration with Stefano Boeri for the 1998 Venice Architecture Biennale.
A selection of landscape images, taken in different places and on different occasions, including those made on behalf of the Mission Photographique de la DATAR (1984-1985) in France, concludes the itinerary.

The exhibition is accompanied by some videos dedicated to Gabriele Basilico and enriched by a catalog, published by Scalpendi, with texts by Angela Madesani, Giovanna Calvenzi and Daria Jorioz.
