#ioabitoincentro (2017 – ongoing)
With Habitat Project (Matteo Aimini, Mirko Cecchi, Andrea Kunkl, Luca Quagliato) and Sabrina De Cillis, Miralem Dedic, Laura Pellicciari, Giuliana Spadaro
#ioabitoincentro is a community based photographic campaign aimed at the activation of the citizens from Rhodense area (including 9 small towns North-west of Milan) in the narrative of their own landscape.
The project is designed by Habitat Project and has been carried out by a mixed working group formed by the photographers of Habitat Project and by 5 citizens from Rho and surroundings, who where selected through a photographic contest and who decided to get engaged in a photography-based choral investigation of their territory.
Through a series of meetings with citizens, institutions and local stakeholders, the working group highlighted the central themes of the Rho area that have become the object of the photographic investigation.
Among them, the history and memory of work and industry in the region has resulted as a fil rouge crossing the circa 500 images produced by the working group during a one year long research and many on-field photography investigations.
A larger selection of images from #ioabitoincentro is accessible on the Habitat Project website here.
The project has been presented in an exhibition at Palazzo Granaio a public building and community center in Pregnana Milanese (one of the 9 towns included in the research) and will tour similar locations in all Rhodense area.
