‘Beyond Borders. Transnational Italy’

‘Beyond Borders. Transnational Italy’



CD is looking forward to attending the exhibition ‘Beyond Borders. Transnational Italy’ / ‘Oltre i Confini. Italia Transnazionale’ curated by Viviana Gravano and Giulia Grechi.

Through film, photography, interviews and documents, this major exhibition at The British School at Rome explores how our cultural and linguistic identities are continually in translation and transformation.

The exhibition includes works by artists B. Amore, Elena Bellantoni, Luci Callipari-Marcuzzo, Mario Badagliacca and the film ‘Cartographers’ (2015) by Valentina Bonizzi, commissioned by Cultural Documents, and produced in Molise, Drancy and Glasgow.

‘Beyond Borders. Transnational Italy’ is one of the principal research outputs of the AHRC project Transnationalizing Modern Languages: Mobility, Identity and Translation in Modern Italian Cultures (TML) and displays processes and outcomes of TML research for the last three years. Beginning with the British School at Rome, the exhibition will follow the itinerary traced by TML researchers and be presented at the Italian Cultural Institute, London (Dec 2016); during 2017 to Addis Ababa, New York, Buenos Aires, Melbourne and Turin.

The works in the exhibition come to life through the installation which enables stories to emerge and a participatory experience to develop; the construction of the immersive expository environment aims to facilitate a sensorial experience as part of a direct form of identification within the exhibition.

The exhibition rooms are designed by BAN Baglivo Negrini Architects, interactive systems and software development designed by Giulio Pernice, post-production and video editing by Simone Memè, and graphic design and communication by Carolina Farina.
