has explored issues related to archival and documentay practices in art.
The project’s final exhibition, has been specifically conceived for Viafarini DOCVA (part of Fabbrica del Vapore in Milan), for Mediterranea 17 Young Artists Biennale.
During the exhibition, Elisa Adami and Alessandra Ferrini will be developing a
