Notturno Fluviale

Exactly fifty years after the flood hit Florence and Tuscany, Notturno Fluviale [Arno 1966-2016] retraces the whole Arno, investigating the first symbol of the concrete relationship between man and river: the architectural element becomes a vehicle for historical and environmental storytelling, sometimes as a frame for already present ecosystems along the waters, sometimes as a real urban scenario (indelible trace of human activity).

The photographic analysis thus acquires a double meaning: on one hand, it is a territorial documentation, such as a mapping of the main tuscan river and its bridges, on the other hand it represents a less conventional visual study of the everyday experience places, structured to overturn and to enrich the common perception.

The official opening of the exhibition will run on friday november 4th, 7pm at OnArt Gallery (via della Pergola 57/61r, 50121 Firenze, Italy).
