Public places and provisional communities
ITALOGRAMMA is a four-handed project that aims to give visible form to the cluster of meanings, signs and feelings underlying the concept of the common good in Italy. Between 2005 and 2012, Fulvio Orsenigo and Alessandra Chemollo travelled through Italy photographing situations and events where people gather to share common interests, passions or needs: public places or private locations hosting public events, where small or large heterogeneous groups become communities, for however a short time.
Incongruous groups photographed in the attempt to give a face to these spontaneous gatherings, investigating the relations between people themselves and between people and the places that host them. A necessarily fragmented journey interweaving with different levels the portrait of a heterogeneous community, both individual and collective representation, snapped in states of expectancy.
