Caro Amore

Nicoletta Grillo

"Caro amore, can we perhaps live a relationship of love stripped of a relationship of ownership?" This phrase, which gives title to the exhibition curated by Marta Cereda, Alessio D'Ellena, Diego Mayon, is contained in a notebook belonging to Marisa Licini, the artist's mother. A box, on the other hand, holds about 40 roll negatives, a thousand photos, carefully cataloged with years, places, subjects. They are photographs taken in the late 1970s: they show moments of private life and demonstrations for women's rights, houses, squares, faces, bodies.
