MORGAGNI SHOWS OFF

MORGAGNI SHOWS OFF

 

The Morgagni Shows OFF project is promoted by Fedora Fund – Prelios SGR and takes the form of a unique urban advertising work that connects the space of Piazzetta Morgagni with an unexpected place in the city of Rome.

 

From a collaboration between Orizzontale and photographer Alessandro Imbriaco comes an action of construction of public space, in which natural elements and artificial forms hybridize giving back an unprecedented and temporary image of the City.

 

The photographic installation was created during three event days in the ancient Cave di Salone, the quarries from where the tufa of the Colosseum and the film set of Ben-Hur was extracted.

 

A legendary place in Rome but unknown by most Romans!

 

The project celebrates the opening of the new Piazzetta Morgagni and at the same time is meant to be a stimulus to explore the unexpected that Rome’s urban landscape holds.

 

As in Venturino Ventura’s abstraction of places in architecture, the installation projects us to an only seemingly remote space, expanding the image of the city while remaining within it.

 

The temporary installation is a new transitional Landmark for public use in the neighbourhood, hosting new opportunities for meeting and sharing.
