“The waste land” – Exhibition

“The waste land” – Alessio Pellicoro

Through the lens of Alessio Pellicoro, the city of Taranto, also known as the “city of the two seas,” reveals itself in its most unsuspected corners and invites visitors to explore its edges and interstices. In this now devastated territory, industry has profoundly marked and disrupted the urban fabric. The natural balance has been broken forever, revealing here and there a surprising microcosm.
