ZÜRCHER/IN of lorenzo borghi – Photobastei 2.0, Zurich, Switzerland
An elusive presence. Many of the bronze and granite statues in the streets and parks of Zurich have populated the city for almost a century. The artworks of local and foreign artists rightfully acquired the honorary citizenship. Whether women in skimpy clothes or young nude boys, everyday human being is elevated to symbolic heights. A photographic exhibition that invites not only to look at but also to look inward.
Find more at the official Photobastei website (auf Deutsch), on the website of Centro Italiano di Cultura in Zurigo (in italiano) or download the flyer in English.
Contact me through email@example.com for more information or for setting up a guided visit to the exhibition. Pass by and discover an elusive side of Zürich you might have missed!

2. Out of space and time
3. In between
The gulf of Naples stretches for 15 km in front of Naples: at the North side it ends with the island of Ischia, at the South side with the Island of Capri. In this limited space you find the 3.7 million metropolitan city of Naples, the volcano Vesuvio, the towns of Sorrento and Pompei and Ercolano … the latter two among the widest archeological sites from the ancient Roman time. It is easy to feel out of space and time (but not of meaning) here.
Obtorto collo, this is the minibus to the cute village of Anacapri, hill top of the Island of Capri. A walk uphill looks healthier
Flooded streets? The ancient Romans invented 3D pedestrians crossings, here in the archeological site of Pompei
Southern end of the gulf of Naples, relaxing on Capri island, the volcano Vesuvio in the background
The gulf of Naples from the Vomero’s hill, the Helm of the Italian artist Mimmo Paladino on the right, a sculpture recalling the peaceful time (the steel rays) after a long time of war (the archaic helm), as Naples fought for its freedom several times during its history
The surreal atmosphere inside Sant’ Elmo fortress, the uphill castle of Napoli
