by Corrado Costetti
The city in-between is the underlying idea beneath the work of the photographer Corrado Costetti Dove stanno bene i fiori: a confrontation with the image of Naples, in search of a many-faceted view of the city. By eliminating its inhabitants and its most recognizable sights, he allows the city’s spaces, both open and closed, to emerge, along with its lights and colours.
Following a unitary visual discourse, we trace the steps of a lengthy crossing of the city, looking for places without access barriers or restrictions of any kind, and which belong to neither the saturated dimension of the historical center nor to the abused one of the suburbs. Various contemporary Naples emerge - the industrial Naples, and that of the construction boom of the 60’s - in a frontal perspective highlighting the never-linear nature of space in the city and suggesting how this complexity conditions, and is conditioned by, its human inhabitants.
