Italy is Out


An exhibition of photographic images by Mario Badagliacca.

What does it mean to be an Italian abroad today? This exhibition features a series of portraits of Italians abroad, and their personal objects which materialise their unique trajectories and connections with Italian culture.

In creating the artwork, Mario has explored common background elements leading Italians to migrate over time, but also to challenge ideas and stereotypes of Italianness in specific contexts.

Mario Badagliacca is a freelance Sicillian photographer. He studied politics and international relations at the University 'L'Orientale' in Naples and photo reportage and photo journalism in Rome. His work documents migration, life on the borders, human rights violations and social issues.

Italy Is Out is part of the programme brought by our partner, the Arts & Humanities Research Council Translating Cultures Theme.
