SATURDAY 15 DECEMBER | THE “SIGNS” OF EARTH

Saturday 15 December at 11am Fratelli Alinari Foundation and Fotografia Zero Pixel present an event curated by Monica Mazzolini who will honor the beauty of our planet through the history of photography.

Starting from the definition of sign and photography – intended as a polysemic language – we will go to discover how photographers have documented and interpreted the Earth and its relationship with the human being throughout history. Pictures, as works of art in general, are a rich source of meanings that go beyond the immediate aesthetic enjoyment.

Monica Mazzolini works as teacher of art, culture of photography and image literature; she is a member of FIAF and contributes as historian of photography, web editor and portfolio lectrice. She writes for magazines such as Note Fotografiche, Riflessioni e Fotoit. She wrote “Matite colorate. Appunti d’arte” (Linea edizioni, 2016) and furthermore she is a history researcher, becoming teacher of History of Art and History of Photography courses. She is co-curator of an Art an Science project regarding ESOF (EuroScience Open Forum) 2020.

For participants ticket costs 7 € included the visit of the museum and the current exhibition “Nino Migliori. Un fotografo d’avanguardia nell’Italia del neorealismo”.
