December 17, 2018: Italian artist's exhibition "Enzo Rosamilia 1977-2017: An Introduction to Italian Mentality" opened in Taganrog's FluxRus gallery "Belka & Strelka" in Giuseppe Garibaldi Street, 21. The show was organized in cooperation with Taganrog Arts & Culture Council.
Enzo Rosamilia told the press that the exhibit features photographs made within the framework of two different projects realised 40 years apart: chronicle photographs "Pig Slaughter" (1977) and "Characters" (2017) - the latter being the result of the Italian artist's cooperation with opera singer and actress Elena Berera (Italy), who appears in many ways and embodies female characters from the great operas.
The works by Enzo Rosamilia are performed masterly in the form of prints on a unique kind of paper produced in the city of Amalfi, which is considered to be one of the most valued and is also used in Vatican city. The artist uses a special technique creating a collage and a laconic artistic image. Rosamilia's masterpieces speak about time and eternity, permanence of cultural codes and the truth of simple things.
