Ricordi Fugaci

It's the time of the year again when Como is getting ready for the Notte Bianca. It’s the third time we (my wife and I) participate in this event. I have prepared a little microsite for this year's photographic exhibition called “Ricordi Fugaci”.

The Notte Bianca 2007 in Como will take place on the June 16th. This time we got a very nice venue, the “Chiostrino di Santa Eufemia” in Piazzolo Giuseppe Terragni, 4. For some reason it is rarely used, but we visited some exhibitions there and really liked it, so we asked the organisation team if we could use it for the Notte Bianca. Luckily they agreed.

If you are in Como on June 16th stop by, have a look at the photos and maybe chat a little bit. We'll be there from 18:00 on Saturday until 03:00 or 04:00 on Sunday. The official schedule is 06:00 on Sunday morning.

We’ve written a little introductory text in italian. I’ll post it here for everybody who’s interested (and can read italian).

Ricordi Fugaci

Fragilità e incertezza caratterizzano l’atmosfera nelle immagini della mostra “ricordi fugaci”. Le fotografie di paesaggi in grande formato parlano della fugacità e della bellezza fragile della natura.

Dalla nebbia che vela le immagini nasce speranza, ma anche incertezza. Il concetto della mostra si basa su questo contrasto. Nei paesaggi superficialmente intatti si inseriscono discretamente edifici, boschi artificialmente impiantati o altri interventi dell’ uomo. Queste modifiche appaiono solo guardando con attenzione. La civiltà sta lasciando delle tracce ovunque.

Notte Bianca aftermath

The Notte Bianca in Como didn’t go well for us. Our exhibition was in the foyer of the Cineplex Astoria. There were two DJs playing just annoying music, one louder than the other. I don’t know why there were two DJs playing against each other. Nobody really came inside to see our pictures. It was the wrong location for an exhibition. the street outside was quite busy but the DJs were placed right in front of the entrance, so nobody went inside.

But then again we were lucky, because on the second floor there were the guys from Go Wine, an association to promote unknown wines and the consciousness of which wine you drink and its background. I tasted a lot of interesting wines that I never heard of and I got a lot of useful information on each wine. And we met a lot of interesting people there, too. So, thanks to go wine we had a great evening and a lot of fun.

Finally the website for the Notte Bianca in Como is online

They finally made it: The website for the Notte Bianca 2006 in Como is online. And they put us in the list of exhibitions, too. Wow. Now we need to get everything prepared for the event, print some flyers and posters and, of course, get our photographs printed. Our exhibition will take place in the Cineplex Astoria from 18.00 until 6.00 in the morning of Sunday the 11th of June. So, if you are around there have a look inside.

More information about our exhibition on the biconcav website.
