Il ponte silenzioso.
A book about the collapse of the Morandi Bridge in Genoa
Il ponte silenzioso. by Editors Valentina D’Amora, Nadia Porfido, and Designer Matteo Pulina is a book that gives voice to emotions, after the collapse of the Morandi Bridge in Genoa, leaves room for those who have really experienced the trauma, in a raw, real, clean way. A way to keep alive the precious memory of those days, restoring a role to those who directly experienced this tragedy: survivors, displaced persons, rescuers, but also the simple inhabitants of Valpolcevera, the territory where the tragedy occurred and which is tormented every day from the consequences of the collapse. The entire proceeds from the sale of the book were destined for educational projects run by associations and agencies already present in the area.
Everything started from the concept of space: the space that left the collapse of the bridge, the space that conceptually was created within us, the space that will be “filled” by the material reconstruction of the bridge, the space that will be filled with educational projects in the territory of Valpolcevera. The publication gives space to people who have experienced the trauma on their skin. Words want to take back the place, they want to go out, they want to transmit themselves, they want to be free not to be confined. In a world where everyone screams, silence can be seen. The white space offers silence.
