On June 12 Fondazione Riccardo Catella , hosted the opening of Milano Archweek with the launching of Milan Open Portrait , a project by Antonio Ottomanelli, promoted by the Fondazione Riccardo Catella.

From Sunday 11 to Sunday, June 18, a Dark Room of human size will be installed in Alvar Aalto Square, in Porta Nuova. The project, halfway between photography of landscape, design and public art, is thought of as a bridge event between the two events Milano PhotoWeek and Milano Arch Week and aims to promote an interactive experience around the city’s image.

Milan Open Portrait is a project by Antonio Ottomanelli, an artist who found in photography the instrument to investigate the territory not as a landscape but as a mirror of social dynamics and geopolitical tensions.

By framing a glimpse of Porta Nuova, the device will realize a monumental and moving portrait of that area and its daily life. The Dark Room, realized through a collective workshop involving (Gallab lab) promoted by the Non-Reserved Association, will be in wood, with plasterboard interior and finished with natural absorbent paints bright: it is possible to observe the impression process of the external images shot through the hole on the back wall – on which will be applied a photosensitive emulsion that will record a latent image of the urban view.

The Milan Open Portrait project is within Porta Nuova Smart Community
