An excellent job has been done by curators Giulia Flavia Baczynski and Giuseppe Gradella for the exhibition -Grafie. Architettura per Immagini at the Fiera Millenaria 2011 in Gonzaga, Mantua.
Eight photographers have been asked to explore the relationship between architecture and the natural and human environment focusing on the marks (grafie) left by each of these elements on the others. Through the exhibition the public is invited to explore these marks and how they form the delicate equilibrium in which we, human, can inscribe ourselves through the architectonic symbol.
The two curators are architects themselves and both take part to the exhibition with their personal works.
