View Gallery

A lot of public participation at the opening of the exhibition "Amalfi 1950s and 1960s - Alfonso Fusco, photographer" at the Arsenal of Amalfi, which can be visited until next February 28, 2022, which took place on Tuesday, December 28. A project carried out by the Municipal Administration of Amalfi - led by Mayor Daniele Milano - with the collaboration of the Fusco family. The initiative is promoted by the Department of Culture - headed by Enza Cobalto - curated by Puracultura and sponsored by the Center for Amalfi Culture and History.

The interactive table - created by Collettivo Digitale of Cesena - containing 393 photos of portraits taken by Alfonso Fusco, saw a large number of Amalfitan citizens participate in the interactive game "Do you (re)know them?": the notebook, where the names of those recognized by friends and relatives were written from time to time, was already 30 percent filled in just one evening.

There was also great interest from the public in the 480 images taken by the Amalfi photographer, which were projected on a loop on the back wall of the Arsenal, with 1950s swing music playing in the background.

Instead, the presentation of the exhibition by Mayor Daniele Milano, the speakers' talk and the presentation of the book "Amalfi in the 1950s and 1960s - Alfonso Fusco, photographer," edited by journalist Claudia Bonasi, with an introduction by anthropologist Prof. Vincenzo Esposito, will be held shortly.

Alfonso Fusco, from Amalfi, born in 1938 and who passed away a few years ago, worked as a photographer at the turn of the 1950s and 1960s: in his archives unearthed by his family, thousands of negatives emerge that testify to the changes taking place in that precise period from the end of World War II to the beginning of Amalfi's "dolce vita." Fusco aims his lens and captures, in a kind of photographic neorealism, everything that happened in Amalfi in those years: shots of everyday life - weddings, public events, election campaigns - but also special events, such as the splendid parties with the dancers of the Africana or the arrival of Jacqueline Kennedy in the Divina.

Opening hours of the exhibition "Amalfi 1950s and 1960s - Alfonso Fusco, photographer": from December 28, 2021 to January 9, 2022 open daily 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 4-6 p.m. From Jan. 9 to Feb. 28, 2022 open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 4 p.m.-6 p.m. or by appointment.
