Triennale di Milano,

At the Triennale di Milano, an exhibition opened its doors to the public on October 1, to tell the story of Italy’s contemporary architectural heritage through photographs taken along 10 routes that cross the Italian peninsula. The images were captured by photographers under 40 and are part of an initiative promoted by the Direzione Generale Creatività Contemporanea (DGCC) of the Italian Ministry of Culture, which implements the Atlante Architettura Contemporanea platform.



From October 1 to November 7 of this year, the spaces of the Triennale Milano are hosting the exhibition entitled "10 Viaggi nell'Architettura Italiana" (10 Journeys through Italian Architecture), promoted by the Direzione Generale Creatività Contemporanea (DGCC) of the Italian Ministry of Culture, in collaboration with the Museo di Fotografia Contemporanea and the Triennale Milano. The exhibition, curated by Matteo Balduzzi, Alessandra Cerroti and Luciano Antonino Scuderi, presents a selection of 110 images, captured along 10 routes that cross the entire Italian peninsula to tell the story of its contemporary architectural heritage.
The selection of shots on display is part of a corpus of almost 3000 photographs taken between 2019 and 2020 by photographers Roberto Boccaccino, Marina Caneve, Davide Cossu, Louis De Belle, Luca Girardini and Marco Zorzanello, Paolo Lindozzi, Allegra Martin, Simone Mizzotti, Flavia Rossi and Alberto Sinigaglia. The work was contracted out following a public selection promoted by the DGCC to implement the "Atlante Architettura Contemporanea" platform, created by the same Directorate General in 2018.

The goal of the Atlante Architettura Contemporanea (Atlas of Contemporary Architecture) is to map and disseminate the knowledge of contemporary Italian architecture to a broad general public and not only to specialists, drawing attention to an important heritage of architectural works created from the second half of the 20th century to today, which must be recognised and attributed a shared cultural value that needs to be preserved. Works that are being narrated and documented through the photographic language because, as Dario Franceschini, the Italian Minister of Culture explains: "Photography and architecture once again prove to be perfectly complementary to one another, capable as they are of interpreting and capturing light, shapes and volumes".
"Architecture and photography are two closely related disciplines – continues Stefano Boeri, President of the Triennale Milano – Photography has the ability, and the power, to narrate the architectures, focusing as much on the detail, as on the overall vision, on the relationship and dialogue between a building, the pre-existing context and the surrounding environment and on how the architectures are used by those who experience them on a daily basis."
The exhibition also provides the opportunity to tell the story of the very genesis of the photographs. The exhibition project created by the Milan-based Studio Folder presents viewers with large and medium size prints distributed on a relief map of the Italian peninsula. The intent is to evoke and inspire visitors to physically retrace the same itineraries that the photographers followed, accompanying them with a large-size projection on the wall, in which the totality of the images is presented in short sequences aimed at enhancing their aesthetic value based on formal and compositional criteria. The exhibition catalogue, published by Silvana Editoriale was also conceived based on the same idea of the photographs’ journey/itinerary. Here, the visual narration is completed by critical contributions, as well as by texts created by the photographers themselves including annotations, observations, anecdotes and impressions acquired and produced during the photographic campaigns. After the end of the exhibition, the photographs on display will become part of the permanent collection of the Museo di Fotografia Contemporanea.
