Cartasia 2005 included two photo exhibitions related to the world of paper and paper production. Two exhibitions about the relationship between the territory of Lucca and the production of paper production, from the point of view of human and social development. Two photographers of Lucca, Enzo Cei and David Sani, hinterpreted this theme in their own way, the first one based his point of view focusing on the interaction between man and the work environment, while the second one developed its own perspective, starting from architecture paper mills, old and new.

DAVID SANI

FUTURE REMOTE

PALACE OF TOWN - LUCCA

"Future remote" is an exhibition that traces and testifies to the historical life of paper in Lucca and the close bond that unites this product with the territory. Since 1300 in Lucca developed working methods, machinery, economic fortunes and socio-cultural changes focused on the processing of the paper. "Remote Future" proposes the restoration and enhancement of this memory, which is the common heritage of the community, in relation to paper. The themes of the exhibition are: the history, traditions, industrial archeology, the development and the future of paper production in the territory identified as the Paper District of Capannori. The objective of photographer David Sani was to take the experience of the places and pass on their stories, even by the absence of man. Through Sani's evocative images of Sani, the comparison between the ancient sites of "making paper", with production methods that characterized them, and the modern industry, more and more projected towards a technological future, highlights a distance that is at the same time, evolution and memory.

 

ENZO CEI

PAPER AND CHARACTERS

SAN MICHELETTO - LUCCA

A photo exhibition on the paper cycle will be an opportunity and a challenge: an opportunity to visit uncharted territory, a source of wonder and new knowledge and the challenge of freeing the subject from the prosaic mundane and obvious forms in which it is commonly perceived. The photographic image in black and white, alienating itself, it can offer a new unusual vision, unusual, with regard to the production and recycling of paper, highlighting the complexity of the process and, at the same time, the rooting in our daily lives. The exhibition aims to initiate an understanding of some moments of paper. Recovery, which is the daily act of collecting and storing this good situation now common and ordinary which is recognized the great educational value. Production: here are adequately put into relief the human and the technological contribution and their delicate interaction that takes place in a shaded area, away from the gaze of users who have the right to grow through information. This process aims to contribute to the development of an ethical lifestyle.
