In the past year—between Como, London and Mexico City—Francesco Pedraglio delved into the writing of 99 battles and 1 war, an ever expanding script which imagines possible mise en scène for historical battles. Dates, locations, known and unknown details and anecdotes, everything is played with through a contemporary lens, which favours changes of styles, from poetry to prose, to cinematographic language. For RIVIERA in the course of an evening, the artist will present in Italian and English 2 battaglie e 1 guerra (an extract).
