Photography: “Mastros” by Daniela Zedda

September 25, 2008 - October 9, 2008
5:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Part of the “Sardegna in NY” events Opening reception lecture by Prof. Gabriella Da Re

The Italian Academy for Advanced Studies in America, Columbia University, presents an exhibition showcasing the fascinating Italian island of Sardinia.

Daniela Zedda, a gifted Sardinian photographer, brings an eye-opening portrait of the wild and enchanting landscapes of the Barbagia and Nuoro regions of the island. She focuses on the small towns and the age-old handcraft traditions, some of them dying out as the population declines - but every location and each tradition offers a window on an unseen world. 

At 6:30, during the opening reception, Anthropologist M. Gabriella Da Re (of the University of Cagliari) will give a brief talk on craftwork, culture and tradition: http://www.italianacademy.columbia.edu/events/2008_2009/Sardegna_Fa08_Da...
