On Friday, Sept. 16, 2022, Rifugio Digitale opens a photography exhibition by Roberto Di Caro entitled Invasion Drama, which can be visited until Sept. 30, 2022. The exhibition curated by Laura Andreini in collaboration with Forma Edizioni, aims to offer a retrospective on the war in Afghanistan and Iraq from 2001 to 2009 through a personal narrative in images, writings, artifacts and music from the front with two texts by Franco Farinelli, distinguished geographer, and Uliano Lucas, dean of Italian reportage photography. The exhibition will compare the two realities – Afghanistan and Iraq – which will dialogue on the basis of different themes. Nomadism, war, cities, archaeology, are just some of the issues that will be discussed and that will highlight, the diversity and contradictions of these peoples. The images taken by Roberto Di Caro himself stage the despair, anger, and resignation that a traumatic event such as war imposes on those who suffer it, but also the tale of everyday life, of life that goes on, in spite of everything. The dramatic tale, but also one of future hope, takes on a unique suggestion within our exhibition space that was created as a place of shelter from the bombs during World War II.

The opening of the exhibition will be held starting at 6,30 p.m. at Rifugio Digitale in Via della Fornace 41, Florence.

During the course of the opening, it will be possible to purchase and order photographs printed and autographed by the author with the following technical specifications:
