The show

The cultural association IDEA hub, operating for the dissemination and dissemination of culture in the territory, together with and with the contribution of the Flight and Rotary Palermo Est Associations, proposes for the VIII edition of the Week of Cultures the realization of the photographic exhibition- "NUOVA GENESI SIERRA LEONE "- photographic reportage on Sierra Leone, one of the poorest countries on the African continent just out of the civil war and the devastating Ebola epidemic, by Sebastiano Cosimo Auteri . The exhibition is a reportage of an incredibly fascinating world, “an Africa of the great reports of the past, the one on display, of which we were no longer accustomed. Images so dissimilar from the most frequent reports of complaints, which portray a reality that is not at all exciting. Of a marginalized third world, the result of a development that has never fully started and has already degenerated, and of centuries of colonialism and exploitation and environmental degradation, of embarrassing images of perpetuated atrocities of all kinds, of civil wars, of tribal struggles, of epidemics , of poverty, of migrations, but also of safaris, and indiscriminate hunting. Recurring images of an entire continent, which pushes the boundaries of our "opulent civilization" and which is frightening. " So writes the curator in the introduction to the exhibition that highlights the image of a country in recovery that tries to solve the annal problems of poverty and underdevelopment, a mainly young population that believes in development and trusts in the disinterested help of international NGOs and on the projects implemented for a possible development of the reborn African nation.
