The Museo di Roma at Palazzo Braschi is inaugurating an exhibit dedicated to the works of Mario Giacomelli, La Figura Nera Aspetta il Bianco. Rome is hosting a retrospective show for the first time that offers an exciting journey into the photography of Giacomelli, his art, the intimate and profound poetry of his work and his creative enthusiasm. Many of his famous series of works are on display in the halls of Palazzo Braschi such as his first photographs taken on the beaches of Senigallia in 1953, the series dedicated to the Nursing Home (Verrà la morte e avrà i tuoi occhi – “Death will come and it will have your eyes”); the “pretini” (little priests) celebrating at the seminary located in Senigallia (Io non ho mani che mi carezzino il volto – “I have no hands to caress my face”); Lourdes; the areas near Scanno that seem timeless and the peasants of La buona terra (“The Good Earth”). Then there is the series focused on exquisite poetry (A Silvia – “To Silvia”, Io sono Nessuno – “ I’m Nobody! Who are You?”, Ritorno – “Return”) whose rhythm and insight fascinated and inspired Giacomelli and the extraordinary landscapes of the Marche region which he photograph throughout his career. Lastly, the exhibit features some of his most “tactile” works in which the tension between black figures and the white background results in an anticipated and dramatic effect that is both compelling and lyrical.
