Lockdown Italy

08.10.2020 - 01.11.2020

Over 70 shots by the photographers of the Foreign Press Association in Italy and the most important news agencies tell the fundamental phases of the pandemic: from the end of March to the first signs of a restart. The exhibition begins with the first part in which the drama of the historical moment strongly emerges in the images of intensive care, coffins inside churches, the suffering faces of nurses and doctors on the front line. We then move on to the deafening silences of the streets and squares of the country, to then continue with the suffering of the patients and the families of the victims. In the second part of the itinerary, we return to see the “light” of rebirth with the images of a reacting population. Initially with the songs from the balconies and terraces or with the reopening of the few commercial establishments authorized to work and then with the gradual return to normality, albeit conditioned by new rules – masks, temperature measurement, social distancing – that we have learned to know and respect. Finally, the exhibition closes with a section dedicated to the work of reporters in times of pandemic. A collage of photos that shows how to press correspondents have had to adapt to the new working conditions imposed by the lockdown through live housewives, reportage with the mask in deserted cities, press conferences and online interviews.
