Journey & Journeys (preview)
"Borders are made by those who cross them".(Eric J. Leed)
For the 20 July issue of Journal "In cammino", Vincenzo Battista will present an unusual reading, through texts and pictures, of the essence of the "journey", of migrating, in a word, of man against the wide natural scenarios and his own personal identities, "in the never-ending research of inner emotions" appearing along his paths. Vincenzo Battista, a witness "on the field", gives an interpretation of signs and what is left of a geography and the symbolic landscape, changing within the transhumance(*) culture of Abruzzese shepherds, a rich repertoire of symbols and meanings, layer after layer throughout the centuries.
