Naples, 2019 edition of Mediterranean festival kicks off: photographs between land and sea

Mediterranean: photographs between land and sea, the exhibition that has been chronicling since 2012 the Mediterranean as an “experimental” place of relationships where cultures and arts interact, dialogue, and evolve, will be in Naples from November 14, 2019 to January 24, 2020. Exhibitions and book presentations, will show images and tell stories to reflect together and dialogue around photographic culture, to emphasize a photography that analyzes the broader aspects of being a citizen today, in relations with the territory and with people. This edition in particular invites us to think about “passage” in the broadest meanings.

Mediterranean: photographs between land and sea, intercepts different genres of photography and generations of photographers. It enhances female and young authors by inviting testimonial photographers. In fact, at Castel dell’Ovo, Sala delle Terrazze (opening Saturday, Nov. 16 at 12 noon), from Nov. 16 to Dec. 16 from Tuesday to Saturday from 10.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m., it will be possible to see about 70 photographs by 7 authors different in age, country of origin and type of research developed. Vincenzo Borrelli(Vanitas), Patricia Escriche(Lievità), Luisa Fabriziani(Passaggio ponte), Elise Llinares(Littoral Marseille), Nicoletta Prandi(Ma dentro voliamo via), Ilaria Sagaria(Il dolore non è a privilege) and Pio Tarantini(Sere a Sud) will showcase the passage as a limit, a condition of suspension, crossing a conceptual boundary, a journey, a change from a past condition to a contemporary one, a transgression of artistic language up to the maximum tension of the altered and ironic use of the medium.

At Palazzo Fondi, Circular Hall (opening Nov. 14 at 6 p.m. - Court) from Nov. 14 to Dec. 15 from Monday to do- monday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., on the other hand, Alain Licari ’s images(Your Wall. Our Lives) documenting life around the wall between the United States and Mexico will be on display.

New for the 2019 edition in Naples is READINGS, a series of meetings with authors of photographic and narrative books accompanied by screenings. Four dates have been defined between November 14 and January 24, 2020, and two institutions will host the presentations: Palazzo Fondi (Thursday, Nov. 14 at 5:30 p.m., in conjunction with the exhibition opening, and Thursday, Nov. 21 at 5:30 p.m.) and Istituto Italiano per gli Studi Filosofici (Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 4:30 p.m. and Friday, Jan. 24, 2020 at 4:30 p.m.). The calendar of READINGS (in the fact sheet list and names), will, to be sure, follow the theme of the passage and relationship of people with the land, and thus of photographic production as an expression of self in the world and with the world, but it will try to push, with the narrative books, toward such reflections as the culture and richness of archives as a point, and starting point, for creation both written and in images. Appointments at Palazzo Fondi, in the Corte - Barrio Botanico, will alternate on Nov. 14 at 5:30 p.m. photographer Cristina Ferraiuolotalking about her Stone Butterfly with writer Valeria Parrella, while on Nov. 21 at 5:30 p.m. photographer Giorgio Negro will talk about his Pathos accompanied by journalist Marco Molino. Meetings at the Italian Institute for Philosophical Studies, in the Mattia Preti Room, will be held Nov. 27 at 4:30 p.m. with photographer Barbara Iodice who will narrate the work Case di Napoli with Antonella Violano of theUniversityof Campania Luigi Vanvitelli, Francesca Vitelli, president of EnterprisinGirls and philosopher Rita Felerico, and on Jan. 24 at 4:30 p.m. with writer Anna Marchitelli who will talk about her Tredici Canti in the company of photographer Lucia Patalano and journalist Francesco Bellofatto.

Mediterranean: photographs between land and sea, held at the Castel dell’Ovo in collaboration with theDepartment of Culture and Tourism of the City of Naples, and at the Palazzo Fondi in collaboration with nintynine is, together with the Photography Workshop for Foreigners and the Photography Workshop for Women, one of the actions put in place by “Lo Cunto” social promotion association. The initiative, for the 2019 edition, has received the patronage of the Representation in Italy of the European Commission, the Campania Region,Unimed-Union of Mediterranean Universities, and theNational Order of Journalists. Cultural partners of the event are the Italian Institute for Philosophical Studies, EnterprisinGirls.

This territory of mediation which is and has always been the Mediterranean, is close to us and looks at us, it is not indifferent to us, it “concerns us.” This sea crowded with past and present, underscores how much the human factor, the person and his sociality, precedes any other consideration. The Mediterranean tells us what human cultural and emotional evolution is and has become in recent years: it is now the sea of the future.
