Silenzio in fabbrica

Vincenzo Miranda

SILENZIO IN FABBRICA (Factory silence)

The project starts from the desire to work with photographs that represent internal spaces of the Tosi company.
After analyzing the path of the industrial revolutions until the mid-twentieth century, the text La condition ouvrière by philosopher Simone Weil has allowed us to perceive the criticality and the needs of individuals who found themselves working in factories.

Spaces in which the worker felt the need to escape, deprived of any rights during the working hours.

The video is the union of the melody Il risveglio di una città (The awakening of a city) by the futurist Luigi Russolo, and images from the photographic archives of the Castello Sforzesco, expresses the condition of the workers of yesterday and today.
