WORKFORCE

Workforce is an ambitious documentary project that attempts to draw a composite picture of Italy’s current labour landscape, within the framework of the recent global economic recession.
Michele Borzoni presents Italy as a case-study that illustrates not only the effects of the economic downturn on labour, but also how the crisis has noticeably accelerated a set of changes that had been detectable throughout the European Union for decades.

The project Workforce is realised with the support of Zona.

Location

Palazzo Pepoli Campogrande
Via Castiglione, 7 - Bologna

Construction of this palazzo was begun in the 1660s as a residence for the Pepoli family. One of the most prominent families in Bologna, the Pepoli were first textile merchants and later money-changers and bankers. The palazzo’s halls were frescoed by the leading artists in fine Bolognese decoration in the latter half of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries: Giuseppe Maria Crespi, Ercole Canuti, the Rolli brothers, and Donato Creti.
