“All those lives destined to pass beneath any discourse and disappear without ever having been told were able to leave traces – brief, incisive, often enigmatic – only at the point of their instantaneous contact with power. So that it is doubtless impossible to ever grasp them again in themselves, as they might have been in a free state.”

M. Foucault, La vie des hommes infâmes, Paris 1977.



The catalogue accompanies the exhibition of works by Alessandro Imbriaco presented at the Casale di Santa Maria Nova in the Appia Antica Archaeological Park from December 15, 2018 to May 1, 2019. The highly relevant theme chosen by Alessandro Imbriaco reflects on the illegal occupation of public and private spaces in the city of Rome, including a marshy area on the edge of the Aniene, the Casilino 900, the former Fiorucci salami factory or the old streetcar station of Tuscolana. In over seventy photographs, taken between 2007 and 2011, reproduced in full page in the catalogue, Imbriaco does not limit himself to capturing an event or situation with the camera, but enters into people’s lives and tells their stories.
His photos are an intense narrative, which goes beyond a mere visual chronicle.
