Ape/Car instagram

This is my new project, for now called “Apecar”.
These young Italians, use this legendary Italian transport called “APE Piaggio” like a car.

The first sighting of Apecar took place on May 2012.

The “Ape Piaggio” was born in 1948, when Italy was still devastated by war. The lack means of transport was evident, but many could not afford to buy a four-wheel. Piaggio came the idea of ​​building a commercial vehicle on three wheels ( bike+van) derived from a scooter. The first model was built from Vespa.
Even today, the Ape is for Italian teenagers a precocious desire to have a car, as their older friends. Change look, customizing appearance, sometimes the power of the engine, represents the final stage of their adolescence; defy the gravity laws running on three wheels above the speed limit, it’s essential to obtain a status symbol.

Uno dice famiglia – niente più – solo famiglia, lo dice a una schiera di fotografi professionisti invitati a partecipare e attende una risposta. Immagina legami di sangue, rapporti di convivenza, discendenza e appartenenza; immagina amore e dolore. Loro, gli interpellati, rispondono con fotografie di una quotidianità rassicurante. La famiglia, nonostante tutto, conserva la sua accezione positiva, priva di ombre e di inquietudini da cronaca nera e si racconta attraverso lenzuola di lino e borotalco, anziane signore e vecchi ricordi, panni al sole e tavole apparecchiate. Una felice varietà di interpretazioni che premia chi guarda, costringendolo ogni tanto – solo ogni tanto – a funamboliche riflessioni sull’idea di famiglia.

The Chain

Mauro took part last project curated by Pilkington, responded to the title set by Matt Eich:

‘The Chain’ is the latest project curated by Stuart Pilkington, (curator of The Alphabet Project What is England? and the 50 States Project).

Stuart invited 107 photographers from around the globe to participate in the project at the beginning of 2011.

And in February 2011 each photographer submitted a title/instruction to inspire a photograph by another person in the project. The photographers were connected like links in a chain. They were asked to respond to the title set by the person directly behind them. The title they set was directed to the photographer directly in front of them.

For example, Elizabeth Gordon responded to the title set by Andrea Chu. Hiroshi Watanabe responded to the title set by Elizabeth Gordon. Harry Borden responded to the title set by Hiroshi Watanabe. And so on and so on.

By 18th June 2011 all 107 photographers submitted their photographs and at the end of June all the images were published on the Chain website. Please click here to see all the images that have been submitted.

PARATISSIMA 2010, From 3 to 7 November, San Salvario – TURIN- Italy

For the sixth consecutive year, Gruppo Para, in collaboration with the association Ylda, is organising a collective exhibition for young artists one of the main events of “Contemporary Art”. Paratissima 2010 will take place from 3 to 7 November, and like the previous year, will be hosted in the San Salvario quarter of Turin.

The sixth edition of Paratissima, the “happening” exhibition of contemporary art, is dedicated to analogies between the kitchen, the “laboratory” of the house and the multiethnic area of San Salvario.
Just as the kitchen is an area for discovering new pleasures as well as the conservation and preparation of food, so San Salvario is the location for creative and artisan activities and the forms a framework for emerging talent.

In 2009, Paratissima came of age, 375 artists, 76 events, 39 private sponsors and 69 businesses of San Salvario were involved, to which must be added 43 non-commercial spaces transformed into locations for exhibitions. The number of visitors was estimated at 40,000.

This year, Paratissima 2010 will again repeat its role as the alternative event to ARTissima, offering a place for young talent, artists not yet established, to exhibit, spiced up with DJ sets, food, drink and live performances. Paratissima utilises various locations in San Salvario, from local bars, businesses and appartments to public spaces. The artists, from around the world, can exhibit their own work with the sole condition that they respect their host location.

Given the nature of the event, its aims, participants and regional collaboration, it will be supported by the Region of Piemonte, the City of Torino and Circoscrizione 8 (the quarter of San Salvario), it forms part of the calendar of Contemporary Arts Torino Piemonte and the Torino Youth European Capital, and is also assisted by the Camera di Commercio, by the Fondazione per l’Arte della FCRT, the Compagnia di San Paolo and by various private sponsors.
