On Saturday 13th May, Photographica FineArt is proud to present a preview of the new art project “Mirabilia” by Silvia Camporesi.
After the success of Atlas Italiae, which mapped out abandoned places, Silvia Camporesi is braving a new Italian journey in search of special places, natural wonders, bizarre buildings and unusual museums: a heritage that will be revealed through the eyes of the author.
In the artist’s work, the journey is often a metaphor for artistic research: a move towards unknown places to bring back an entirely personal vision of the world and of things. The Italy that will be presented by the artist in this project is decidedly unusual. Legendary Italian locations and views of landscapes, will be replaced by photographs depicting little-known landscapes; places which are fascinating, but far from the usual destinations. The anatomical theatre in Bologna, the Malatestiana Library in Cesena, the Teatro all’antica in Sabbioneta, the marble quarries in Carrara, the Abbey of San Galgano and many other places to follow, in this list of Italian wonders.
