About this title

Synopsis:

Italy's largest and greatest trade union, the CGIL, was formed in 1906, epitomizing what the fledgling nation's culture and credos were to represent in the twentieth century. At the time, the CGIL was able to encapsulate a traditional working class, the inevitable bourgeoisie, capitalists, and, later, fervent communists. Now, almost 100 years later, Italy has changed fundamentally. The demographic differences so starkly apparent at the time of the CGIL's formation have simply faded away, like a vibrant watercolor exposed to the sun. They have been replaced by a colorless chain-store homogeneity, a vagueness of purpose, a flatulent middle class without values or value. Made in Italy CGIL 100 investigates these shifts via pictures from four young photographers, Emiliano Mancuso, Mario Spada, Massimo Berruti, and Giancarlo Ceraudo. It asks the inevitable questions: How can this have happened? Is anybody paying attention?

About the Author:

Made in Italy. CGIL 100 was produced by the following photographers in cooperation with Aut Photo and CGIL: Emiliano Mancuso/Grazia Neri Agency (Rome, 1971) was awarded the Canon Prize Best Project 2005 and the FNAC Italia Prize for Photographic Talent for his work on Southern Italy. Mario Spada's (Naples, 1971) images depict the urban and social framework in the historic centre of Naples and its Spanish quarters. His current project is on Naples' petty criminals. In 2001 he was awarded the Canon Prize for Young Photographers. Massimo Berruti (Rome, 1979) started his career with an assignment in Cyprus in 2003. The following year he started a project on immigration in Italy, photographing Hotel Africa in Rome and in Corviale (a suburb of Rome). Giancarlo Ceraudo/Grazia Neri Agency (Rome, 1969) is currently researching the political, social and cultural issues of the Cono Sur (South America), and in particular the decline of Argentina after the 2001 economic crisis.
