Martin Errichello & Filippo Menichetti

In Fourth Person


Since the 60s, in the midst of the so-called economic miracle, Italy’s cultural and political powers established an extensive, radical process of transformation of territories and traditions. In the name of a progress Italy was to be fed with new roads, new industries and definitely a new identity. The southern Calabria region, the case-study of this visual exploration, is a mythic land where the challenge of modernity has imposed its language and aesthetics, slowly oppressing its human and natural landscape. Errichello & Menichetti spent two years travelling through the region documenting and collecting traces of what was being lost, or forgotten. In Fourth Person became a visual record for the many unanswered questions, suspended between utopy and betrayals.
