The Novecento is a story full of journeys of hope, of frontiers crossed by men and women in search of a better life. Journeys, transits and stays have generated a great wealth of historical, literary, photographic and cinematographic traces. The aim is didactic and pedagogical together, therefore the breadth of the instruments used, from photography, to video, to multimedia up to the contribution of theatrical, musical, cinematographic and visual arts, intend to offer continuous stimuli by offering visitors more than a exposure a suggestive emotional experience.
The narrative voices of the Apulian actors Michele Placido, Sergio Rubini, Mario Perrotta and Cosimo Cinieri, follow the path of the visitors along the exhibition. More 250 photographs have been selected from museums, historical archives, institutes, foundations, alongside works by great photographers such as Fosco Maraini, Ferdinando Scianna, Iuliano Luca, Pier Paolo Cito, Alberto Pizzoli, JB Russel, Les Stone, Peter Turneley , Patrick Durand. The photographic documentation is enriched by a video search thanks to the participation of Teche RAI and Istituto Luce. A space for each section is intended for the cinema, through video clips with the sequence of short but significant scenes included in the exhibition path as a window on the imagery produced by the cinema with respect to the documentary illustration offered by the exhibition path. A contribution of visual art by Albanian artists Adrian Paci, Alfred Mirashi, Parlind Prelashi and Artan Shabani, arrived in Italy in the nineties and today important international artists of contemporary art. The added value is the direct witnesses, the migrants, those who had to leave, who talk about emigration for having lived on their own skin and who represent an important human and emotional contribution. Migration means above all movement. For this reason the exhibition will be set up inside 12 goods wagons which will be transformed into a large multimedia gallery: the train is one of the symbolic signs of our migration, used by millions of Puglia to reach the port of Naples at the beginning of the century from where the ships left for the Americas, and after the war to reach Belgium, France, Germany and Switzerland. The train will stop at the following railway stations: »Lecce - 20,21,22, 23, 24 February» Central Brindisi - 25,26,27,28 February »Taranto - 1,2,3,4 March» Bari Centrale - from 5 to 12 March »Foggia - 13,14,15, 16 March» Torino Porta Nuova - 19,20,21,22 March
