DEVELOPING THE FUTURE

In Bologna, at the heart of the most advanced mechanical engineering sector, a new production site represents a centre of excellence for our country. Philip Morris asked photographer Carlo Valsecchi to recount this place and this new entrepreneurial challenge through his distinctive gaze. He decided to opt for an approach akin to technical design. The final output is a series of very large-format prints, which project the viewer into an infinite space with a cosmic dimension, a space of dizzying development.

Dating to the 1200s, in the late eighteenth century this palazzo became an institution serving orphans and young mothers. Inactive since the 1990s, this fascinating monument of great architectural interest is occasionally used for cultural events.
