IL SANGUE NON ODORA (2016)

Between may, 1945 and may, 1946 a former-partisans gang murdered about 44 people, attempting to establish a soviet-like regime in northern Italy, near Modena. The gang that was led by Dante Bottazzi and Vittorio Bolognini killed various people, ranging from the “enemy of People” to suspected fascist collaborators, robbing and stealing in a zone called “Il triangolo della morte” (Death’s triangle). Using a mix of text, found documents and photographs and newly-taken pictures near the places where murders happened, I created a series of sheets, pretending to be a sort of researcher, walking along the line between fiction and documentation. “Il sangue non odora” (blood doesn’t smell) is to remember the blind bilateral fury of war.
