The project Et in Terra Pacis was officially launched today by Ramdom thanks to the support of the SIAE | Sillumina – Private Copy for Young People, for Culture and MIBACT.
Et in Terra Pacis is a visual artwork conceived in the form of experimental docufilm. The docufilm tells three stories that have crossed from 1960 to today a symbolic place in the history of the Salento territory: the former c.p. (Temporary Residence Center) Regina Pacis. An emblematic and metaphorical place, born in the 1960s as a summer colony for children, became the largest Italian cpt in 1998, then the center of judicial scandals for the violence suffered by the refugees and today it is a ruined ecomostro that is being prepared to become a five star resort.
The works will end in December 2017, with an official presentation of the work performed by the two artists. In this blog you will be able to follow updates on the research and production phases.
