The view from Lucania is an independent organization founded by Stefano Tripodi in 2010 whose purpose is to produce culture in South of Italy and support territorial development.
SUDARIO NUMERO ZERO is the first self-produced zine dedicated to Southern Italy that hosts some works from photographers and artists based in the South, story tellers of their land.
“The word ‘sudario’ originally meant a thin piece of cloth used by Roman soldiers to wipe off sweat. Later, it was used to refer to the mourning shroud covering the body of a deceased person and eventually it became semantically synonymous with The Holy Shroud, the cloth in which the body of Jesus Christ was wrapped after his death.
Irrespective of any historical context, the word and its meaning are inextricably linked to the concepts of absorption, suffering, spirituality and threshold. Using these terms as points of reference in its research, TVFL chose the word ‘sudario’ as the title for its collective work.
‘Sudario’ is a sort of cultural blanket, which, from time to time, is laid across the various areas of southern Italy, absorbing its most striking and axiomatic features revealing its shadows, stains, folds and moods.” Andrea Fasciani
The TVFL will be on the 28th-29th-30th November 2014 in Milan (Italy) for the second SPRINT edition, independent publishers and artists’books salon.
