#INSIDE: “AMERICA AS SEEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED”
moderator FRANCESCO COSTA
When you try to use images to represent a place that is 33 times the size of Italy, and which in certain places changes every kilometre and every year, doesn’t every photo risk being misleading, confusing a part with the whole?
What does it mean to photograph the United States and what do those that explore this place and describe it via this medium learn about it?
Francesco Costa meets Daria Addabbo, photojournalist with extensive experience of travelling and working in the United States. She has used words and images to describe the small towns and rural provinces, drought and urbanisation, the West and industry.
Her photos have been published in magazines such as Espresso, Internazionale, Panorama, Vanity Fair, Psychologies, Gioia, Grazia, Donna Moderna, GQ, TuStyle, and in the books "This Hard Land" and "Acque d’America" (published by Jaca Book).

#INSIDE: “THE AMERICANS ARE JUST LIKE US. OR ARE THEY?” - SOLD OUT
moderator FRANCESCO COSTA
There are lots of people in the world we know less about than the Americans, that goes without saying, but there is no bigger difference between what we think we know about them and what we actually know.
Over time, the influence of American culture has acquainted us with unfamiliar contexts, convincing us that we know all about the American everyday life, culture, habits and mentality. But are we wrong? How wrong?
Francesco Costa meets Dana Rogers, Business English teacher, content creator and author. Dana Rogers comes from Racine, Wisconsin, in the heart of Midwest America: the region that drove US economic development in the 20th century with its factories and manufacturing industry, becoming the symbol and the home of the working class, only to fall into depression in the 1990s as a result of deindustrialisation.
She lives and works in Italy and her first book, published in 2022 by Mondadori, is called "Level Up”.

#INSIDE: “THE AMERICA WE DON’T KNOW” - SOLD OUT
MARTA CICCOLARI MICALDI
moderator FRANCESCO COSTA
Can we really get to know America, going beyond the stereotypes and cliches, from the comfort of our sofas? Which books enable us to explore the United States that we don’t see in films and TV series, away from its big cities and wonderful parks? How can literature prepare us for our travels? Francesco Costa meets Marta Ciccolari Micaldi, journalist, author and literary guide specialising in North American literature.
Better known online as LaMcMusa, Marta Ciccolari Micaldi has been examining US culture since 2013, looking in particular at the America we are less used to seeing - the province, the roads between one city and the next, the borderlands - organising literary journeys and using novels as a tool for exploring and understanding. She writes a newsletter called #SognaAmericano and produces two podcasts on American pop culture and literature: Black Coffee Sounds Good and Pop Corn.
EVENTS CONNECTED WITH THE EXHIBITION "LISETTA CARMI. PLAYING LOUD"

As part of the IFP (Italian Feminist Photography) project, Federica Muzzarelli intends to extensively analyse, for the first time, the contribution of women to the history of Italian photography, framing it in the context of the gradual affirmation of women’s rights and feminist emancipation according to the most recent perspectives offered by gender and feminist studies. This meeting focuses on the reflections of a photography historian specialising in the history of female photography, adapted and revisited on the basis of the Lisetta Carmi exhibition.

#INSIDE: "THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY - PHOTOGRAPHY AS THE ORIGIN AND INSPIRATION FOR THE ARTISTIC SIDE OF OUR WORLD"
moderator ROBERTO KOCH
The author of "Il coraggio del pettirosso", "È stata una vertigine" and "Il viaggiatore notturno" looks back at his earliest storytelling experiences as a photographer with his first Zenit camera, a present from his father Dino.
He has never abandoned this language which he continues to study in the belief that images can, and sometimes must, be an intrinsic part of the narrative process. A sharp and poetic reflection that is sure to surprise.
Wednesday 30 November 2022
#INSIDE: MEETING WITH ALICE ROHRWACHER
with the contribution of Tiziana Poli, moderator ROBERTO KOCH
Born in Fiesole and sister of actress Alba Rohrwacher, she graduated in Literature and Philosophy from the University of Turin. She subsequently obtained a Short Specialisation Degree in Screenwriting and Documentary Language from the Videoteca Municipal of Lisbon and a Short Specialisation degree in Narrative Techniques, Screenwriting and Theatre from the Holden School of Turin.
Her directorial debut came in 2006 with "La Fiumara”, an episode of collective documentary "Che cosa manca", produced by Carlo Cresto Dina.
2011 was the year of her cinema debut with the film "Heavenly Body", presented during the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs at the 2011 Cannes Festival, which earned her a Nastro d’Argento award for best new director.
In 2014 she won the Cannes Film Festival Grand Prix Special Jury award for "The Wonders". The same year she was involved in collective film "9 x 10 novanta", presented at the Venice Film Festival.
Her film "Happy as Lazzaro" was selected to compete at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival where it was joint winner of the Prix du scénario for best screenplay.
Specifically for the exhibition produced in close collaboration with curator and gallerist Giovanni Battista Martini, owner of Lisetta Carmi’s archive, Alice Rohrwacher presents an original, specially commissioned film inspired by the work and life of the photographer which documents the secrets and the impulses that led the famous director to make her own personal film contribution to the exhibition, as well as the passion she has immediately felt for the work of Lisetta Carmi.

#INSIDE: DOCUMENTARY ON LISETTA CARMI
MARCELLO FLORES D'ARCAIS
Screening of the documentary "Lisetta Carmi, un'anima in cammino" (Italy, 2010, ’54)
A documentary on the Genoese photographer by Torinese director Daniele Segre.
Her photos, her vision of the world, her passionate work that went against the grain of the Italian society of the 1960s and 70s have left their mark on the world of art: the transvestites and dockworkers of Genoa, the eroticism and authoritarianism of the Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno, her journeys to document the world, her explosive photographic meeting with Ezra Pound. Finally, her profound mystical meeting with Babaji in India in 1976 and the construction of the Ashram of Cisternino, the first to be built in the West and mecca every year for thousands of the faithful from all over the world. Born to a family of Jewish origin on 15 February 1924 in via Sturla, Genoa, Lisetta Carmi lived a truly remarkable life.
