    "Unless we remember we can not understand" (EM Forster). Remember the story of the Verona ex General Stores means being able to understand some of the events that have marked the history of the city of Verona from the '20s to today. This photographic project, that portrays some of the most striking buildings of the ex General Stores, is a contribution to the importance of perpetuating the memory of an industrial archeology - so full of meaning - for demolition and redevelopment. Stop it. Retrieves a slowness of the glance that allows you not just to observe but to experience these places with life and capable of arousing feelings and emotions timeless. Read Less

“Se non ricordiamo non possiamo comprendere” (Edward Morgan Forster)
Ricordare la storia degli Ex Magazzini Generali significa poter comprendere parte degli avvenimenti che hanno caratterizzato la storia della città di Verona dagli anni ‘20 ad oggi. Questa progetto fotografico documentaristico, che ritrae alcuni dei più suggestivi edifici che costituiscono il complesso degli Ex Magazzini Generali, è un contributo all’importanza di perpetuare la memoria di un’archeologia industriale - così carica di senso - destinata alla demolizione e alla riqualificazione. Fermati. Recupera una lentezza dello sguardo che ti permetta non tanto di osservare ma di fare esperienza di questi luoghi dotati di vita e capaci di suscitare affetti ed emozioni senza tempo.
