Luigi Ghirri. Montagne che non si possono scalare
Italia in miniatura e nuove prospettive
Curators: Ilaria Campioli, Joan Fontcuberta and Matteo Guidi
Curated by Ilaria Campioli, Joan Fontcuberta and Matteo Guidi, the exhibition draws on In scala: the photo series produced by Luigi Ghirri between the end of the 1970s and the mid-1980s in the ‘Italia in Miniatura’ theme park in Rimini. The series, in which Ghirri explores themes very dear to him, such as the double, pretence and the very notion of reality, will be placed in a dialogue with a range of materials – drawings, postcards, documents and images – from the theme park’s own archives. This is an extraordinary and involuntary archive produced from the mid-1960s onwards by Ivo Rambaldi (1920–1993), founder and creator of the park, as a result of his numerous journeys along the entire peninsula with a view to collecting as much visual documentation as possible for the construction of his miniature models.
The project is realised in collaboration with Italia in Miniatura park, Archivio Eredi Luigi Ghirri and ISIA Urbino with the Art Bonus contribution of IREN SpA and Fondazione Pietro Manodori and with the contribution of Crédit Agricole Italia.
Open until 8 January 2023
