Viaggio in Italia by Matteo Rubbi
From June 3 to September 18, 2011 at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice. Rubbi’s aim is not to create a map of the places he visits, but to raise awareness of areas outside major cities, as he explores a decentralised and often marginal territory. Matteo Rubbi is the narrator and reporter. Rubbi involves local daily newspapers—one of the primary “places” in which provinces express and learn about themselves—which become part of this itinerant work of art, he asks permission of the dailies to publish short articles, written in collaboration with the newspapers themselves, about the places he discovers along the way.
