The show

From 19 December to 16 January Lecco will host the photo exhibition "Of rock and steel" at the exhibition halls of the Visconti TowerThe photographic exhibition set up from Saturday 18 December to 16 January at the Torre Viscontea in Lecco is entitled "Of rock and steel". The exhibition presents 34 images by Giacomo Albo and Marco Introini documenting the transformation of the post-industrial landscape of Lecco.The exhibition, promoted by the Municipality of Lecco and by Si.M.U.L. as part of the annual program of city exhibitions, it collects the photographic shots of Giacomo Albo and Marco Introini that testify to the profound relationship between the natural landscape and the urban and industrial landscape in the city of Lecco.

The photographic itinerary proposed in the exhibition originates on the banks of streams, in the narrow valleys, in the shadow of the rocky walls of Corno Medale, where water became the driving force for steel processing. The architectural typology of the factories here still seems to share a measure with the prevailing historical buildings. Going down to the valley, the photographs show some productive realities "survived" in continuity with the new settlements which arose on the ashes of the previous sectors.
