KUWAIT. A BURNING DESERT: IN MILAN THE FIERY SHOTS OF SALGADO
In 1991, Kuwait burned 732 oil wells, and the effort of men called to turn them off was enormous, as well as irreparable environmental damage was caused. In Milan at Forma Meravigli is open until 28 January 2018 the Kuwait exhibition. A desert in Fiammedi Sebastião Salgado. After 26 years of the “unnatural” disaster, as the author himself described it, the story of images of a tragedy brings to the present the full extent and severity of what has happened.
Salgado entrusts to black and white, typical of Brazilian photographer, the story of the environmental tragedy that occurred in Kuwait. The 34 large-scale shots appear to go deeper, shaped by an apocalyptic light that gives size to the burning wells, the oil depleting the desert, the animals, and the men.
To reach the exibithion you can take red Milan metro and get off at Cadorna station or with Milan bus number 94. Discover how to get free Milan public transport thanks to Milan City Pass, click here.

BILL VIOLA AT THE CRYPT OF LEONARDO
Continues the exhibition of Bill Viola at the Crypt of Leonardo. The exhibition path designed for the Crypt of Leonardo opens with The Quintet of Silent(2000). This work represents 5 men standing crossed by a wave of intense emotions. The slowness of the video is characterized by the caravaggesic chiaroscuro. The exhibition continues with The Return (2007), which reflects the passage of time and process through which the inner being of a person is transformed. The exhibition path ends with the Earth Martyr (2014) work in which a person is buried in a cone of land that begins to climb, shaking his body, which also begins to climb, being trapped by the weight of the earth.
