Photography as a life choice
The Casa dei Tre Oci hosts a photo exhibition of Letizia Battaglia

From March 20 to August 18, 2019, the Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice hosts a great retrospective by Letizia Battaglia, one of the most significant protagonists of Italian photography, which traces its entire career.

The exhibition, curated by Francesca Alfano Miglietti, organized by Civita Tre Venezie, in collaboration with the Letizia Battaglia Archive, with the participation of the Venice Foundation, presents 300 images, many of which unpublished, which reveal the social and political context in which they were shot.

The exhibition itinerary will focus on those arguments that have been at the heart of the most characteristic expressive aspects of Letizia Battaglia and that have led her to make a deep and continuous social criticism while avoiding clichés and questioning the visual premises of contemporary culture. The portraits of women, men, animals, and children are only some of the chapters that make up the show; added to these are photos of cities such as Palermo, and then those devoted to politics, life, death, love, as well as two films that inquire into her human and artistic activities.

The result is a genuine portrait of Letizia Battaglia, a nonconformist intellectual but also a poetic and political photographer, a woman who interests herself in what surrounds her and in what, distant from her, arouses her interest.
