“The memory room can consequently be considered exclusively as a serious documentary test which rebuilds a tragic fact of the italian national past, that of the violent repression of the resistant partisans which took place in the April of 1944 between the Provinces of Genoa and Alessandria. However the project of Andrea Botto also constitutes, on a second level of interpretation, a lucid reflextion on the language with which it is written, by aligning a series of elements and sets of themes fundamental for the history and the theory of photography like memory, death and time.”
F. Zanot
