Letizia Battaglia: Street stories

"In 1971, Milan welcomed me and gave me the opportunities to decide on my own life. I was 36 years old and here, not in Palermo, I began to be a photographer". Letizia Battaglia

Palazzo Reale, Piazza del Duomo, 12, Milan, Italy

The exhibition presents 300 photographs, many of which are unpublished, which reveal the social and political context in which they were taken. The choice of photographs was carried out in collaboration with Letizia Battaglia archive. The thematically arranged exhibition itinerary focuses on those topics that have built the most characteristic expressive figure of the photographer, which led her to make a profound and continuous social criticism, avoiding clichés and questioning the visual assumptions of culture Contemporary. Portraits of women, men or animals, or children, are just a few chapters that make up the review.

Francesca Alfano Miglietti, curator of the exhibition stated: “The exhibition presents works that are ‘forms of attention’ of the artistic path of Letizia Battaglia: something that comes even before her photographs because Letizia Battaglia wondered about everything that fell under at her eyes, a murder or a child, a glimpse or a gathering, a person or a sky. Watching was her main activity, which “materialized” into extraordinary images”.
