The Photographer Salvatore Esposito with his work "La Forza del Silenzio" won the Call for audio and video reportage organized by the Reportage Festival in the spring of 2023. See you in Ascoli Piceno on June 30th. 📌 ON THE PROGRAM: THE STRENGTH OF SILENCE | Talk and screening with Salvatore Esposito | #Videos 🎥 Gennaro and Maurizio are monozygotic twins who were diagnosed with autism at the age of about a year and a half. This marked the radical change in their lives for Enzo and Antonella, the parents. The continuous tendency towards isolation, the behavioral and crying crises of Gennaro and Maurizio forced them to hard trials. Energy is lost, but in the end the parents' love for their children prevails. “La Forza del Silenzio”, produced in 2016, is the story of identical autistic twins and their family, of their suffering but also of the parents' support for their children. It is a story of autism and love. 🗓 Friday 30 JUNE 2023, 9.00 PM 🗓 📍 Cloister of the Ceramic Art Museum, Ascoli Piceno 🔖 Entrance with free pass upon reservation 🔗 More info and bookings at the link in bio #festivaldelreportage #ascolipiceno #reportage #festival

On October 29th at 3.00 pm at the Suor Orsola Benincasa University, the photographer Salvatore Esposito with the director Silvia Ricciardi of the Jonathan Community for children at risk will present the Picture of Life course to the students of the Faculty. The course is supported by Manfrotto and wants to be a stimulus, for minors at risk, of legality and the opportunity to learn a creative work. The anthropologist Helga Sanità moderates the meeting.
In 2014 Manfrotto gave life to Picture of Life in collaboration with the Ministry of Justice and the Jonathan Association, a project that aims to support people with serious social or family difficulties, offering them the opportunity to reintegrate into society and acquire new professional qualifications.
The photographer Salvatore Esposito has been since the first year the tutor of the students of the course and has taken them through the teaching of photography to the realization of a portfolio that tells a story.
From the first year, Manfrotto brought the works of the participants around Italy, as at the Volunteer Festival in Lucca and at the Galleria San Fedele in Milan.
The exhibition on display at the MAXXI in Rome is the first stage of an itinerant tour that will bring Picture of Life around the world, retracing the history of the project with the most representative shots.
The photographs on display want to tell the experiences, stories and new opportunities of those who took part in Picture of Life.
