Paris. March 2006. Students from universities and high schools launched a series of protest rallies in the Latin Quarter against the bill on employment known as CPE. Ten years later the Nuit debout movement has emerged from opposition to the 2016 neoliberal labor reforms known as the Loi Travail. Place de la République – a location dear to me (see my successful Signes/Segni exhibition in November 2015) – is the epicenter of this new protest. The CPE reportage is my first official professional photo project realized with a super compact and portable Kodak Easyshare C300 camera.

FUORI is Matteo Ceschi and Federico Ramponi‘s experimental photo project aiming to tell Fuori Salone activities. The project focuses on the side activities at the beginning and at the end of the Fuori Salone week. Neighborhoods (Ticinese, Tortona, Cinque vie, Brera and Lambrate) are swarming with people working hard to maintain their scheduled deadlines. Inside old walls, behind high windows, a new generation of workers reinvigorates Milan’s working tradition. Without them there would be no show! In this reportage people and different locations – which are now classic meeting points for designers, curious people, travelers and the Milanese movida as well – are seen through Matteo Ceschi’s b&w street shots and Federico Ramponi’s knowledge of the world of design.
