18 June-31 July 2008. The Sala S. Rita displays the works by the Rome photographer Andrea Quattrini, who kept a photographic diary of a journey to Japan. The 32 black-and-white shots were taken by Quattrini between Kyoto and Tokyo and catch the contrasts of this land. The photographer takes the viewers on the Japanese subways and trains, in the schools and the countryside, in the chaotic streets of the cities and in the silent temples. The real objects of his shots are people with their fears and hopes. The photographic eye catches the sacred and the neurosis, the sweetness and the loneliness, which characterize the existence of the human being. Quattrini depicts contemporary Japan, which struggles with a distant past and an uncertain future, which sometimes appears even more distant.
