Muri di Piombo (Lead Walls)

2005-07
[photographs and articles selected from the newspapers; 44×44 cm/20×44 cm]

Muri di Piombo (Lead Walls) proposes an analysis of national and historical identity, through a series of 50 texts and 50 photographs taken at scenes of the terrorist attacks of the “Anni di Piombo” (the period of left-wing terrorism in Italy from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s). The piece recounts this often ignored, or forgotten chapter in Italian history: each photograph is taken at the same time and on the same day that the original terrorist attack took place on.
