Alessia Cocca

Alessia‘s latest body of work will be on the walls of the Italian Cultural Institute in Berlin from June 7th at 19:00. Her latest body of work, Le rose di Alfredo (Alfredo’s roses), was inspired by the story of Alfredo “Alfredino” Rampi: the six-year Alfredino fell on 10 June 1981 in Vermicino near Rome, 36 meters deep in a well. Despite the several days of rescue efforts, the child could only be recovered dead. The powerful photographs of Alessia bring back her childhood memory of that episode, reinterpreted with powerful symbolism, so common in Alessia‘s work. More images after the cut!
