The silence of Michelangelo Antonioni
Photography




Piero Marsili Libelli started his career in Milano during the 1970s, by working for the crime-news section of the Corriere della Sera, one of the most important italian newspapers. He also worked for agencies of photojournalism by producing picture stories about politics. During the 1980s he moved to Rome, where he started a collaboration with the weekly magazine L’Espresso, focusing mainly on the vanguard theater. During this period he hanged out with Carmelo Bene, Giancarlo Nanni, Roberto Benigni, Memè Perlini, generating a photography which tells their world by surreal art forms. In 1982, he was in Belfast to make a report on Bobby Sand’s funeral and to document the urban guerrilla. In 1989, he immortalized the romanian revolution by putting models in the soldiers’ arms with the background of a Bucarest still in war. Throughout his life he travelled to many countries, such as Africa, India, Japan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Kosovo and produced several social and war reports, such as those ones on the gold mines of Ghana, on the musician Alì Farka across the Niger banks, on everyday life in Bombay. Exhibitions and artistic performances of theese reportages were taken in Amsterdam, Rome, Madrid, Barcelona, Sao Paulo, and Milan. He also worked side by side with several renowned movie directors, such as Michelangelo Antonioni, Francesco Rosi, Giuliano Montaldo, Marco Ferreri and he recently teamed up with Vittorio Storaro, by working on the set of Caravaggio, a high-budget italian film production. Some of these photographs have been exhibited at the Lincoln Center in New York. He worked in advertising for Alessandro D’Alatri and Ferzan Ozpeteck and in 1997 exhibited with the fashion designer Massimo Osti in Milan, Galleria Sozzani.
