About the artwork

Italy is one of the leading European tourist destinations. Famous for the beauty of its coastline, mountains, architecture, food, and for its painters, it offers incomparable cultural wealth. Yet, if we believe Massimo Siragusa's images, it is in the huge malls or amusement parks that Italian tourists prefer to spend their free time. The photographer denounces these mass vacation sites and consumerist behaviour through the series "Tempo Libro", from which this photograph is derived. Dating from 2010, Fiume Lento was taken in the Gardaland amusement park located in Castelnuovo del Garda in Veneto. The overexposure of the colours and the work on white tones enable Massimo Siragusa to attain half-pastel, half-flashy hues, a muted and almost unreal atmosphere that highlights the artifice of these locations.
