The exhibition "Gabriele Basilico - Territori intermedi", curated by Filippo Maggia, promoted and organized by Fondazione OELLE Mediterraneo Antico in collaboration with the Gabriele Basilico Archive.
The exhibition at the "Castello Ursino" Civic Museum is an unique preview: the selection of photographs reveals an approach that has hitherto little been investigated within the rich artistic production left by Basilico. The "intermediate territories" are physical spaces tangible to the eye, but also mental spaces, induced in the observer by the voids, by the absences determined by pauses and silences in the visual construction of the image.

The thickness of the light and the choice of perspective adopted by Basilico contribute to determining the formal balance between the volumes, inducing a correct reading of the image, through that act of suspension and contemplation often emphasized by the photographer himself as a fundamental moment in observation. of the landscape, of whatever nature it is and presents itself.
