The show

A sensitive reportage of a still open wound. Without ever losing the right distance from the reality she observes, the author's eye manages to give us back the humanity that is hidden behind the news. The exhibition is thus a journey through the unpublished material of a young photojournalist who will demonstrate her narrative ability in her thirty-year career as a film author, always poised between the direct grasp of reality and the search for the invisible. Naples is the initial stage of the photojournalist's journey: Piazza del Plebiscito, crowded with citizens and cars, in the aftermath of the earthquake, brings the visitor back to the heart of a city victim of despair and fear. The images of Via Stadera, where the most serious collapse took place in the metropolitan area, are the premise of the investigation path that will lead the author in the destroyed villages of Irpinia. Departing to the inland municipalities hit by the earthquake, with her Renault 4 and cameras, Antonietta De Lillo, then twenty, tells about the villages reduced to rubble, the first aid, the research groups, the tragedy of the findings. The reportage accompanies us in the following weeks: the camps, the caravans and the prefabricated buildings, the volunteers who come from all over Italy, the arrival of the snow until the thaw, on the threshold of a fragile but courageous recovery. A sound carpet, taken from the Rai Teche archive, with the voices of the news and radio news of the time is broadcast in the rooms hosting the exhibition. The exhibition itinerary ends with an illustration of the recent anti-seismic studies conducted with the Federico II University Department of Structures for Engineering and Architecture (DiSt) directed by prof. Andrea Prota. A research aimed precisely at the themes connected to the reduction of seismic risk with reference to the museum building, to the installations, to the permanent and temporary exhibitions. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog published by MANN with contributions from the Director of the MANN Paolo Giulierini and the President of the Campania Region Vincenzo De Luca, as well as Antonietta De Lillo, Andrea Prota, Antonio De Simone, Titta Fiore, Gaty Sepe, Antonello Corporal and Giovanni Fiorentino. In the volume, there are also touching testimonies of survivors. The event is organized as part of the POC 2014-2020 of the Campania Region with the patronage of the Order of Journalists of Campania.
