Foto/Industria: Lisetta Carmi in Santa Maria della Vita

Santa Maria della Vita , from 24/10/2019 to 24/11/2019

In Bologna from October 24th to November 24th 2019 there will be the IV Biennial of FOTO/INDUSTRIA, promoted by the MAST Foundation, with 11 exhibitions in 10 different historical locations in the city center and one at MAST.

Genus Bononiae. Museums in the city is pleased to host the exhibition of a great Italian artist Lisetta Carmi in Santa Maria della Vita (via Clavature 8/10).

Lisetta Carmi is undoubtedly one of the most important Italian twentieth-century photographers. Two of her works are exhibited within Foto/Industria, both created in 1964. The first is a project on the port of Genoa, where she portrays, with equal intensity, the majestic and terrifying forms and the fatigue of men. The second is a series on the Italsider, also created in Genoa, still largely unpublished and characterized by a clear experimental momentum, in which abstraction and labour are combined in an indissoluble and powerful combination. Accompanying the exhibition is music by Luigi Nono. He visited Italsider’s facilities with Lisetta Carmi in 1964, recording the sounds and using them as the foundation for his composition “La fabbrica illuminata” (The enlightened factory).
