Genoa, December 20, 2018: a whole day dedicated to a photo project. Subject: the collapsed Morandi Bridge. I was in town with a friend, creative designer Federico Ramponi. Guiding us via WhatsApp, the Genoese La7 journalist Paolo Colombo, who suggested most of the places we shot from.
With these 29 b&w shots, I want to play the sense of movement of pain and loss against the granitic immobility that dominates the ghost neighborhood’s streets and buildings under the bridge.
I tried to narrate the neighborhood with its bridge from different angles. The hills around the Polcevera stream have proved excellent observation points and allowed me to have a wider and more complete view of the disaster.
Once at home I realized that my shots possessed a sort of camouflage ability: while I was shooting, I continued unconsciously to see the bridge still intact in front of my camera. The horizon, the electric cables, the houses and the neighborhood with its silent architectural geometries have become substitutes for the missing section of the Morandi Bridge.
Observing the series of advertising posters modified directly in the street by artist TD it would be too easy to think about the music of KISS. But TD’s anarchist/punk approach suggests instead we combine his posters with Tricky’s urban rhythms. Armed with photocopies and a glue stick, TD transforms the dreamy boundaries of the aesthetics of Romanticism into a real provocation against the art system, which vacuumed the art born in the streets. Gene Simmons’s tongue caresses the vision of the past of modernity, then spits on it with the arrogance typical of punk. In front of a dog pound or in front of the city prison, TD’s RomanticKISS appears to rekindle the movement of Art.
