Image and literature, word and vision, past and present, East and West. The latest exhibition by the artist Ileana Florescu (at the bookshop/gallery Diagonale in Rome) is entitled All’indice – Biblioteca Angelica / Siria – andata e ritorno with the catalogue being presented here. Superimposing photos of archaeological sites taken in Syria early in 2011 over those of literary works – all original editions – censored by the Catholic church over the centuries, Florescu warns against all forms censorship.
