An appointment on the occasion of the photographic exhibition “A POEM” by Lelli e Masotti.

Giovanni Pelloso, curator of the exhibition, Carlo Serra, philosopher of music, Silvia Lelli and Roberto Masotti will converse together on formal themes related to photography, sound, music, performance space that inspired the exhibition.
Interesting aspect of the meeting is that some videos of the authors will be shown, realized in the last years, that develop another kind of look and “multimedia” construction.
