THE REDISCOVERED “APPIA”, WALKING FROM ROME TO BRINDISI
Montura presents the photographic exhibition on
611 kilometres, 29 days of walking and about a million steps are the numbers of the 'Rediscovered Appian way'. The multimedia exhibition on the first big European way ever built, from Rome to Brindisi.
After 2327 years since the way was built, in the summer of 2015, Paolo Rumiz, Riccardo Carnovalini, Alessandro Scillitani and Irene Zambon walked the Appian way. Their itinerary, concluded on the 13th June 2015, was able to trace the whole path of the mother of all ways, forgotten for centuries of squandering and negligence.
The exhibition gives the chance to relive this fascinating rediscovery through the integrations of three elements: the photos of Riccardo Carnovalini, a reportage of Antonio Politano and the snap-shots, extracted from the videos “on the road”, of Alessandro Scillitani.
The exhibition itinerary, looked after by Irene Zambon, is enhanced by the texts and the captions of Paolo Rumiz and of his fellow companion travellers, which bring to the country's attention, the beauties and the potentialities of territories that today are often abandoned and forgotten despite the unique emotions and new encounters they can generate through the simple action of walking.
The inauguration of the exhibition is going to be on the 9th June at 6 p.m at the “Auditorium Parco della Musica Roma”, and it will remain open until the the 18th September 2016. It will be open every day from 12.30 to 8.30 p.m. For more information Festival della Letteratura di Viaggio.
