Ghosts in the photograph
never lied to me.

I'd be all of that
I'd be all of that.

A false memory
would be everything.
A denial my eliminent.

What was that for?
What was that for?

What would you do
if you saw spaceships
over Glasgow?
Would you fear them?

Every aircraft,
every camera,
is a wish that
wasn't granted.

What was that for?
What was that for?

Try to be bad.
Try to be bad.

Please don't flow so fast
You little mountain hum
I'll take a bottle down to you

Please don't flow this fast
You hold a little hum
I'll bottow sounds of me for you

Please don't flow so fast
You little mountain din
I'll bottow piano sounds from you

Please don't flow so fast
You little mountain noise
I'll close my eyes and bite your tongue

There's a rainbow on your red bicycle
And I see it in your eyes
You wipe your wet nose with your icicle sleeves
And you fold it twice

Your eyes : In the middle of the road
Your eyes : It's the same story

You see they're drowning now
You see they've gone cold
You see they're drowning now
You see they hold enough dew

You fall from a stone and I kiss ripe lips
And I follow you home
You wipe tears away with your icicle sleeves
And you said goodbye

Your eyes : They're closing in the night
Your eyes : It's the same story

You see they're drowning now
You see they've gone cold
You see they're drowning now
You see they hold enough dew

I wonder if you are the same without me
I wonder if you are the same
You said they're all drowning now

You said I'll shout it out
You said I'll change their view

You said I'll shout it out
You said I'll change their view

You said I'll change their view

Some time ago Foundation Sacra Famiglia started a new cultural project, titled “Affrettati piano: il tempo
dell’arte incontra il tempo del cuore (Hurry up slowly: art time meets heart time)”, with a series of artistic,
musical, theatrical and cultural events, further to specific rehabilitative activities (Arts therapies) devoted to
guests of different divisions. These events are promoted by Foundation Sacra Famiglia with the aim to assert
and give visibility to rights and dignity of people having cognitive disability and/or psychic trouble through
their participation and active integration.
Among the initiatives to celebrate the year 2010 as “European year of voluntary services promoting active
citizens”, the Symposium project, proposed by Foundation Istituto Sacra Famiglia, in partnership with
Mo.V.I., Ciessevi and Comune of Cesano Boscone, sees the participation of 20 artists (men and women) for
a cultural route shared among users, Sacra Famiglia operators and Cesano territory.
The aim of this project is to realize activities inside and outside the Foundation to stimulate a larger
exchange between citizens and disabled people as well as a greater mutual sense of belonging.
Artists, not accidentally coming from the European territory, will elaborate their works inside the Institute
and will lead artistic laboratories open to disabled people, to their reference operators as well as to some
classes of the Alessandrini – da Vinci School, Cesano.
At conclusion of this Symposium a first exhibition of the realized works, open to all citizens, will be done at
Villa Marazzi. A second ehibition will take place during the fall in Milan.
The project objectives are as follows:
- In an hypothesis of interaction, the meeting of people with human and cultural different routes to
 promote the mutual enriching (artists, employees and ISF guests, Cesano citizens)
- Through the examination of works ( realized in laboratories), to analyse creative possibilities of the
 ISF guests
- To enable meeting and comparison between different artistic and linguistic expressions and local
 culture
- To enable ISF guests to take possession of fresh creative artistic expressions
- To promote and make easier the comprehension process of contemporary arts to employees and ISF
 guests as well as to Cesano citizens
- To gather an adequate photographic documentation concerning symposium experiences, in order to
 propose it externally on different occasions (meetings, seminars, conventions, reports on web sites,
articles in Italy and abroad).
Works realized during this Symposium will be exhibited at Foundation Sacra Famiglia, Comune of Cesano
Boscone as well as at House of Volunteers (now under construction), thanks to Ciessevi and Comune of
Milan.
Furthermore during the fall a collective exhibition of all works will be realized in Milan.
In concomitance with the Symposium of Contemporary Art, which will take place at the Fondazione Sacra
Famiglia in Cesano Boscone between 15th and 22nd May, 2011, the Associations ACLI – Il Sogno – Bem
Viver and Galassia organize a meeting with three female and one male artists attending this symposium.
Each artist will present his/her experience gained in connection with people or communities through
relations and images.
Zsuzsanna Ardo, an Anglo-Hungarian artist, photographed several Rom communities in Europe on behalf of
Amnesty International. Collected photos show the search for beauty done by visited communities as well as
by a personal artist’s search.
Isabel Jover and Cesar Reglero Campos, a couple of Spanish artists, will present results of a mail art
convocation having mental trouble as subject.
Rosanna Veronesi, an Italian artist, working as volunteer at the Casa di Gastone in Milan, will expound
phases of mutual work in artistic laboratories lead by experts and intended for guests.
Antonella Prota Giurleo, Italian artist and curatrix, will project and comment images concerning creative
experiences had with detained women in female prisons (Chiorillos in Lima and Bollate close to Milan).
For oral interventions of Zsuzsann Arda, who will speak English, of Cesar Reglero Campos and Isabel Jover,
who will speak Spanish, simultaneous translations are warranted.
The Symposium of Contemporary Art is organized at the Fondazione Sacra Famiglia in Cesano Boscone
with the cooperation of Comune of Cesano Boscone (Assessorship for Social Services),Mo.Vi and ciessevi.

Una mostra, composta da due mostre, che partono da un presupposto comune: la consegna
alle artiste e agli artisti di qualcosa da esaminare, da trasformare.
Nel primo caso ( la mostra fotografica organizzata dalla Camera del Lavoro Metropolitana di
Milano) il “qualcosa” consegnato è il luogo stesso dell’agire della CGIL. Un luogo che è stato
visitato, studiato, indagato nelle sue forme e nelle persone che lo vivono e restituito alla
visione collettiva da parte di ventotto tra fotografe e fotografi.
Nella seconda ipotesi (la mostra di libri d’artista proposta da Agesol e realizzata in
collaborazione con la CGIL milanese) un testo, La custode, è stato trasformato dalle mani di
ventitre tra artiste e artisti. Non a caso il testo è di Sonia Savioli, fotografa ufficiale della
Camera del lavoro dal 1981 al 1986.
