The great photographic and anthropological project "The Homo Sapiens" by Arturo Delle Donne will be presented to the public on Saturday 16 October 2021 at the Museum of Chinese and Ethnographic Art in Parma.
Twenty large photographs will be exhibited throughout the museum's exhibition itinerary. A job that starts from afar. More than a year ago, on the occasion of the collaboration for the exhibition "Tribes - the last breath on earth", Delle Donne began to portray citizens of the most diverse geographical origins in the Museum of Chinese Art, immortalizing them with their own clothes traditional.
The project “The Homo sapiens” was therefore conceived as a journey, a journey of discovery, of exploration. It arises from an idea of knowledge of a cultural diversity that is often forgotten in the name of homologation. By valuing cultural heritage, our civilization, historical and monumental, often forgets the great intangible heritage given by cultural diversity. With the incoming migratory flow, which since the 1970s has overtaken the outgoing one, new traditions, religions, customs and languages have begun to be part of our cultural system. But not only. New ethnic goods have entered. Like clothing, which is universally considered to be the first form of communication for a people. The first language set in motion when two people meet are physiognomy and clothing, understood in a visually broad sense, such as clothing, accessories, hairstyle, permanent signs.
