Josef Koudelka. Radici | Alessandra Mauro
Twenty-eight years of observation, of travel, of looks. In these 28 years, Josef Koudelka, a Czech photographer naturalised as a Frenchman, has visited the most important archaeological sites in the Mediterranean and described them through spectacular images. In this video, Alessandra Mauro, editorial director of Contrasto, talks about the exhibition Radici by Josef Koudelka.

Radici. Josef Koudelka | Roberto Koch
Josef Koudelka has visited more than two hundred archaeological sites around the Mediterranean in twenty different countries, returning several times to get the most out of his photographic work. In this video, Roberto Koch, editor of the book Radici (Contrasto), talks about Josef Koudelka's exhibition.

Radici. Josef Koudelka | Lucia Spagnuolo
The Ara Pacis Museum is the ideal place to host Josef Koudelka's ambitious and original project: the photographer's gaze on the ancient world dialogues perfectly with the archaeological finds on the museum's upper floor. In this video Lucia Spagnuolo, curator of archaeology at the Ara Pacis Museum, talks about the exhibition Radici by Josef Koudelka.

EVENT Radici. Sguardi sulla mostra

Four free online meetings for the exhibition Josef Koudelka. Radici. Evidenza della storia, enigma della bellezza. Appointments in streaming with the photographer Andrea Jemolo, the archaeologist Emanuele Greco, the geographer Franco Farinelli, the archaeologist Simone Foresta.

Vedere per comprendere. Fotografare l'archeologia romana | Andrea Jemolo
On the strength of his personal experience with Walls, a photographic work on the walls of Rome presented some time ago in the Ara Pacis Museum, Andrea Jemolo proposes a reflection on what it means to photograph the city, architecture and memory.

Impressioni, emozioni, rovine | Simone Foresta
Beauty and bewilderment, order and chaos, wonder and disquiet. What do the images of the ruins of the ancient world convey to us? The dialogue, starting from the work of Josef Koudelka, reflects on the extent to which photography constructs current feelings of the past.

Il percorso e la mappa | Franco Farinelli
The topicality of myth today is explained by the fact that it does not contemplate the possibility of the spatial functioning of the world, which is in fact disappearing nowadays. And this is the key to interpreting Koudelka's photos, which precisely because they are "mythological" actually prepare the ground for the future.

Storia e storie del Mediterraneo | Emanuele Greco
Starting with a selection of panoramic shots taken by Koudelka during his thirty-year journey across the Mediterranean, Emanuele Greco focuses on the relevant archaeological contexts, which are not always easy to understand: the identification of monuments and ruins will be part of the reconstruction of a topographical overview, with the aim of combining the Czech photographer's gaze with a historical reading of the sites represented.
