A visit to MUFOCO – the museum of contemporary photography, where there is an exhibit that is part of a project involving more than 200 artists who photographed more than 3,000 sites in Lombardy.
Photographs and projections of “santelle” – devotional niches – and wall affrescoes with religious images and above all the changing Lombard landscapes that the saints “look at” since their image was created. It’s truly a curious and unexpected point-of-view, that of the “eyes” of the saints revealing the landscapes’ variety and providing the opportunity to reflect on the changes that have taken place in these places in the course of time.
There are also some videos involving the photographers who filmed in various Lombard landscapes: urban, rustic, and mountainous.
The architect Matteo Balduzzi, curator of the museum and teacher at NABA of Milan in the Masters program of Photography and Visual Design, introduces us to the exhibit and takes out of the archives precious photos of landscapes shot by illustrious photographers, such as Gabriele Basilico, Luigi Ghirri and others.
The museum is located in the 17th century Villa Ghirlanda Silva in Cinisello Balsamo, whose rooms preserve important frescoes that will also feature in the visit together with the centuries-old park over which the villa looks.
