What are the stories and anecdotes that lie behind a photo?

A series of seminars in which the great protagonists of Italian contemporary photography reveal that work that lies behind a painstakingly composed photo or one captured in the blink of an eye

In the fourth seminar we meet a hybrid working group composed of the photographers Tommaso Bonaventura and Alessandro Imbriaco and the curator Fabio Severo. Conceived as a “visual archaeology of the mafia phenomena in contemporary Italy”, their project Corpi di reato testifies to the new model of a liquid, invisible mafia that has emerged in recent years following the terrorist phase of the 1990s, camouflaged within the healthy parts of society.

Using photography to understand the spread of mafia organizations in Italy represents an attempt to explore the grey area in which they prosper, infiltrated within civil society and the economic fabric and hidden behind the apparent normality of places.
