Lugo Land is a collective project in which a group of photographers were invited to develop a sequence of 5 photographs accompanied by a short text, investigating the area within the boundering of the city of Lugo. What they discovered was, for example, that in Il Tondo community centre, where the old men gather to play marafone, every Sunday a community of Africans from various parts of Italy gather to celebrate the mass of the Church of Zion; that a business has relocated to via Puccini and that via Don Minzoni is the most beautiful street in Lugo; that change is afoot in Lugo's Madonna dell Stuoie neighborhood and that the Bible prohibits the making of images of anything on earth or in heaven; that in Lugo the sun can be so dazzling it turns black, and that the spectators watching the air show at the flying club look just like Francesco Baracca in his statue in the centre of the old town. And that in bygone days Lugo was an enchanted forest which one photographer, shutter problem notwithstanding, actually managed to photograph.
